Willoughby real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Willoughby is exemplified by its calm environment. This part of the municipality is quiet, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although that is not the case around Trans-Canada Highway. Lastly, public green spaces are especially well-distributed and there are over 50 of them nearby for residents to unwind in, making them easy to access from most locations within this neighbourhood.
Willoughby is very car friendly. Coming across a parking spot is easy. In contrast, commuting by public transit is challenging in Willoughby. Thankfully, residents benefit from about 10 bus lines, and bus stops are commonly a short walk away. Travelling on foot is not very convenient for house buyers in this neighbourhood as very few daily errands can be run without the use of a car. Getting around by bicycle is also challenging in this part of the municipality because riding is rendered arduous by the typically sloping topography, and the cycling network is fairly poor.
Roughly 80% of the units in the neighbourhood are occupied by homeowners while the remainder are rented. Single detached homes are the most common housing type, representing around 40% of buildings in this area, and the rest of the properties are mainly duplexes and townhouses.
