Central real estate guide & listings for sale

Central offers a calm atmosphere and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time outdoors. The majority of locations within the neighbourhood have reasonably good access to green spaces, including Iron Horse Trail and Waterloo Park, since there are a few of them nearby for residents to visit. This area is quiet overall, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - although that is not the case close to the railway line.

Transportation

Central is quite well-suited for those who travel by foot; carrying out day-to-day needs is easy by walking. Central is also quite bicycling-friendly because the cycling infrastructure is good. The best method to get around in this part of Waterloo is usually driving. Many real estate listings are a rather short car ride from the closest highway, and parking is generally easy. In contrast, the public transit network in Central is sometimes poor. Thankfully, there are about 10 bus lines traversing the neighbourhood, and it is very easy to reach a nearby bus stop from most houses.

Housing

Large apartment buildings are the most common housing type, representing around one third of buildings in Central, while small apartment buildings and single detached homes make up most of the remaining housing stock. The homes in this neighbourhood are quite old, since roughly 40% of its dwellings were built pre-1960, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s and the 2000s. This part of Waterloo has a good selection of unit sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. The split between homeowners and renters is about even.

Services

The nearest grocery store in this area is usually only a short walk away. In addition, Central is a good place in which to eat out or go to a cafe. It is also convenient to reach a variety of clothing stores on foot. When it comes to education, parents and their children will find that wherever their property is situated in Central, schools and daycares are nearby. Families are served by public and private secondary schools.
