Bedford real estate guide & listings for sale
Bedford offers a relaxed environment and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time outdoors. There are over 50 parks close by for residents to explore, which results in them being easy to access from many locations within this part of the municipality. This area is also very good for those who need quiet areas, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour.
Bedford is very car friendly. Parking is quite easy, and the majority of homes for sale are a rather short drive from the closest highway. However, the public transit service in Bedford is not very frequent. Thankfully, residents benefit from a few bus lines, and bus stops are ordinarily a short walk away. It is impractical for people travelling on foot to move around in Bedford as very few daily errands can be run without the use of a car.
Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing around half of dwellings in Bedford, whereas the remainder are mainly large apartment buildings, small apartment buildings, and townhouses. This area is primarily composed of two bedroom and three bedroom homes. Roughly two thirds of the units in the community are occupied by homeowners whereas the remainder are rented. About one third of properties in this part of the municipality were constructed following the year 2000, while most of the remaining buildings were built in the 1960s and the 1980s.
High schools and primary schools are not particularly plentiful in Bedford, and thus not always within walking distance. Furthermore, it can be difficult to access daycares on foot. With respect to food, getting to one of around 10 supermarkets by walking is practical for some, but not all, house buyers in Bedford. A limited selection of restaurants and cafes is available as well.
