Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing the majority of dwellings in Boucherville, while small apartment buildings and townhouses make up most of the remaining housing stock. This city offers mainly four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy about 85% of the properties in Boucherville while the remainder are rented. Around 40% of homes in this city were constructed between 1960 and 1980, while the majority of the remaining buildings were built in the 1980s and the 1990s.
Boucherville is especially car friendly. It is very convenient to access a parking spot, and many real estate listings are a reasonably short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Autoroute de l'Acier. However, this part of the Greater Montréal metropolitan area is not very transit friendly. Nevertheless, the city is served by approximately 20 bus lines, and it is convenient to get to a nearby bus stop from most residences. Boucherville is not very well-suited for walking as many daily needs are challenging to meet without having to use a car.
A portion of property owners in Boucherville may have the option to shop for groceries by walking in one of approximately 30 stores, while others will have to turn to another means of transportation. A limited number of restaurants and cafes can be found as well. In terms of education, it can be difficult to reach high schools and primary schools as a pedestrian from properties for sale in Boucherville. Additionally, daycares are not especially abundant and therefore tend to require an extended walk to get to. Apart from public schools, there are private elementary and high schools.
Boucherville offers a slower-paced atmosphere and will appeal to home buyers who enjoy spending time outdoors. The greenery in this city is not particularly prominent; more specifically, residents will find that the tree canopy coverage for a lot of streets is sub-par. Nonetheless, there are over 100 public green spaces close by for residents to check out, making them easy to reach. This city is also quiet, as the streets are usually peaceful - although there are still several noisier areas, especially closer to the railway line, Autoroute de l'Acier or Autoroute Jean-Lesage.
