Housing

In Kitchener, about half of dwellings are single detached homes, and the rest are mainly large apartment buildings, small apartment buildings, and townhouses. This city offers mainly two bedroom and three bedroom homes. About 60% of the dwellings in the city are occupied by homeowners and 40% are rented.

Transportation

Travelling by car is especially convenient in Kitchener. It is straightforward to access a parking spot, and most real estate listings are a reasonably short drive from the closest highway, such as Highway 8. However, public transit users may find few choices in Kitchener by reason of the low service level. Nonetheless, property owners can rely on the Kitchener Station with access to the Kitchener Line. Homeowners are served by about 40 bus lines, and bus stops are commonly nearby. It is convenient to move around by bike in Kitchener as the bicycling network is reasonably extensive. This city is not especially suitable for those who travel by foot since many daily needs are at times challenging to meet by walking.

Services

It is frequently an option for house buyers in Kitchener to purchase their groceries by walking. Lancaster Street is among the best streets for groceries. A limited selection of restaurants and cafes is available as well. As far as education is concerned, families will appreciate that wherever their property is situated in Kitchener, primary schools are close by. In contrast, high schools are not especially abundant and accordingly may require a long walk to get to. In addition to public schools, there are private elementary and secondary schools.

Character

Kitchener is a reasonably good city to buy a house in for those who prefer a relaxed atmosphere. This city is quiet overall, as the streets are usually reasonably tranquil - however some areas can be quite loud, especially closer to Highway 401, Highway 85 or one of the railway lines. Finally, there are over 350 green spaces close by for residents to explore, like McLennan Park and Kiwanis Park, which makes it very easy to access them.
