University real estate guide & listings for sale

University is a great neighbourhood for those who enjoy both indoor and outdoor activities. There are a very large number of things to do in this part of the city for those looking for a dynamic vibe. The streets are very often busy with people, there are many nearby entertainment venues, and places to go out at night are well-spread throughout the neighbourhood. Bloor Street in particular offers a wide selection of bars. There is a fair amount of greenery in this neighbourhood; green spaces are especially well-located and there are a few of them nearby for residents to check out, which makes it very easy to get to them. Residents will also find that most streets have reasonably good tree coverage.

Transportation

Home buyers in University have various options to travel without using a car. Physically active home buyers will appreciate the very pedestrian-friendly character of this part of Toronto; running daily errands is very convenient, and innumerable businesses of different types can be found as well. A fair number of people in the area use their bicycle since bike-share stations are hardly ever more than a short distance away, and the cycling infrastructure is fairly good. The public transit network in University is great. For instance, rapid transit stations, such as Queen's Park Station and Museum Station with access to the Yonge - University Line, are commonly a short walk away from the greater part of houses in the neighbourhood. The neighbourhood is served by around 10 bus lines, and most homes are very close to a bus stop. In contrast, driving is a sometimes poor transportation option in this area since many real estate listings are an occasionally long car ride from the closest highway, and parking is not very easy.

Housing

In University, about 40% of buildings are small apartment buildings, and the rest of the properties are mainly large apartment buildings and townhouses. This neighbourhood also has a good selection of housing sizes - properties range from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Around two thirds of the population of this neighbourhood rent their home whereas owners make up the remainder. Most housing in this part of Toronto was built prior to the 1960s, during its biggest construction boom.

Services

Both general and specialty grocery stores are usually accessible within a very short walk from most properties for sale in this part of the city. In addition, thanks to 200-odd restaurants and cafes in University, there is almost always a place to get a meal or beverage just around the corner. Property owners can find a very large number of clothing stores within walking distance. Regarding education, schools and daycares are very easy to access on foot from most houses for sale in this part of Toronto. Families have the choice between public and private schools at both the primary and high school level.
