Tempe real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Tempe is exemplified by its relaxed ambience. This part of City of North Vancouver is fairly good for those who enjoy quiet surroundings, as there are usually low levels of noise from traffic - although that is not the case around Trans-Canada Highway. Lastly, there are a few green spaces nearby for residents to explore and they are very well-spread out, making them very easy to reach from the majority of locations in Tempe.
Driving is an excellent transportation option in this area. It is convenient to find a parking spot, and nearby highways, such as Trans-Canada Highway, are very easy to access from anywhere in this part of the city. In contrast, Tempe is not very transit friendly. Thankfully, homeowners have access to a few bus lines, and bus stops are not very far away from most residences. The bicycle is a quite bad method of transportation in Tempe as there are very few bike lanes, and riding is made difficult by the typically sloping terrain. Travelling on foot is also not especially feasible for residents in Tempe since few daily errands can be run without having to resort to a vehicle.
Single detached homes are the most common housing type, representing about half of buildings in Tempe, and the remainder are mainly small apartment buildings and duplexes. This neighbourhood has a good variety of housing sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Roughly 70% of the population of this neighbourhood own their home whereas renters make up the remainder. About 30% of properties in this part of the city were built in the 1980s, while the majority of the remaining buildings were built pre-1960 and in the 1960s.
It is easy to get to the closest grocery store by walking from any location in Tempe. Likewise, those who like to dine in restaurants will have a good number of opportunities. When it comes to education, it is a reasonably short walk to reach daycares and schools from most houses for sale in Tempe.
