Winnipeg real estate guide & listings for sale
Winnipeg offers a slower-paced atmosphere and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time outdoors. There are over 1200 green spaces close by for residents to check out, including Assiniboine Forest and St. Vital Park, and they are very well-spread out, making it easy to access them. This city is also reasonably quiet, as the streets are usually quite calm - although that is not the case close to the airport (YWG), Perimeter Highway or one of the railway lines.
Cars are a great transportation option in this city. It is a short drive to the nearest highway, such as Perimeter Highway, from any location in this city, and it is very easy to park. On the other hand, the public transit system in Winnipeg is rather limited. Nonetheless, there are over 50 bus lines, and most properties are very close to a bus stop. It is occasionally difficult for people travelling on foot to move around in Winnipeg because carrying out daily needs is challenging.
Single detached homes are the most common housing type, representing the majority of dwellings in Winnipeg, but large apartment buildings and small apartment buildings are also present in the housing stock. Around one third of properties in this city were constructed prior to the 1960s, while many of the remaining buildings were built in the 1960s and the 1980s. This city has a good selection of unit sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Around two thirds of the dwellings in the city are occupied by homeowners while the rest are rented.
It is convenient to access the closest supermarket on foot in Winnipeg. Marion Street is among the best streets for groceries. There are also a limited number of opportunities for those who appreciate close by restaurants and cafes. Regarding education, parents and their children will welcome that wherever their home is located in Winnipeg, both primary and secondary schools are close by. Along with public schools, there are private elementary and secondary schools. In contrast, daycares are not particularly plentiful and thus not always within walking distance.
