Toronto real estate guide & listings for sale
Toronto is a reasonably good city to buy a house in for those who prefer a calm environment. This city features a fair amount of greenery; there are over 2100 public green spaces close by for residents to check out, including E.T. Seton Park and East Don Parkland, resulting in them being very easy to reach from most locations within this city. In addition, residents will find that the tree canopy coverage for many streets is reasonably good. This city is quiet overall, as noise from streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - however noise can be problematic around Don Valley Parkway, Sherbourne Lakeshore, one of the 3 airports (YTZ, YYZ, YZD) or one of the railway lines.
Toronto affords property owners the choice between different means of transportation. With a multitude of rapid transit stations on the Scarborough Line, Sheppard Line, Yonge - University Line and Bloor - Danforth Line, and over 250 nearby bus lines, property owners can depend on public transit to travel in this city. Toronto will also draw physically active people because it is quite suitable for those who travel by foot; most daily needs are easy to carry out on foot. It is sometimes difficult to commute by bike in Toronto since travelling by bicycle is made arduous by the often steep terrain, and this city is home to a somewhat poor bicycling infrastructure. Nonetheless, certain bike-friendly pockets exist.
In Toronto, roughly 45% of dwellings are large apartment buildings, while small apartment buildings, single detached homes, and townhouses are the main housing types in the rest of the housing stock. This city has a good choice of housing sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. The split between homeowners and renters is about even. This city did not experience a single building boom; the construction of new dwellings in Toronto was spread throughout multiple decades in recent history.
It is typically an option for house buyers in Toronto to buy groceries on foot. Baldwin Street is among the best streets for groceries. Likewise, there is often a restaurant or cafe in close proximity. House buyers have access to a fair number of clothing stores within walking distance. When it comes to education, families will appreciate that wherever their property is located in Toronto, schools and daycares are close by. Besides public schools, there are private elementary and high schools.
