Québec real estate guide & listings for sale
Québec is a good city to buy a house in for those who prefer a slower-paced ambience. There are over 450 green spaces nearby for residents to enjoy, like Parc des Champs-de-Bataille and Parc de la Belle-Eau, resulting in them being easy to get to from most locations within Québec. This city is reasonably quiet overall, as the streets are usually reasonably tranquil - although that is not the case near Autoroute Dufferin-Montmorency, Autoroute Robert-Cliche, the airport (YQB) or one of the railway lines.
The best approach to get around in Québec is usually driving. Nearby highways, such as Autoroute 573, are quite easy to drive to from anywhere in this city, and it is very convenient to come across a place to park. In contrast, the public transit service in Québec is not very frequent. Nonetheless, the city is connected by over 150 bus lines, and bus stops are not very far from most properties. Québec is not especially bicycling-friendly since travelling by bike is rendered arduous by the often sloping terrain. Nevertheless, cycling is better in certain sectors than others, and the bicycling infrastructure is reasonably comprehensive. This city is also not especially suitable for those who travel by foot since few daily needs can be met by walking.
Small apartment buildings are the most common housing type, representing around 40% of dwellings in Québec, and the remainder are mainly single detached homes. This city has a good choice of unit sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. About 55% of the dwellings in the city are occupied by homeowners whereas the rest are rented. Around 30% of properties in this city were constructed between 1960 and 1980, while most of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s.
It is convenient to reach the nearest grocery store by walking from any location in Québec. A limited number of restaurants and coffee shops are available as well. As far as education is concerned, in Québec, parents and their kids will usually be able to access primary schools on foot. In contrast, there are only a few high schools and therefore they can be an extended walk away. Besides public schools, there are private primary and high schools.
