Saskatoon

Saskatoon is a city located within Saskatchewan, Canada.

Housing

Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing about 60% of dwellings in Saskatoon, whereas the rest are mainly small apartment buildings and townhouses. This city has a good variety of housing sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. About 70% of the dwellings in the city are occupied by homeowners while the rest are rented. About one third of properties in this city were built between 1960 and 1980, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s.

Transportation

The preferred method of transportation in Saskatoon is very often a car. Most real estate listings are a rather short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Idylwyld Drive, and parking is generally easy. In contrast, Saskatoon is not an especially pleasant part of the Greater Saskatoon metropolitan area for moving around by public transit. Thankfully, homeowners are served by over 50 bus lines, and the closest bus stop is usually very close. It is impractical for pedestrians to get around in Saskatoon because very few common errands can be run without the use of a vehicle.

Services

Primary schools are convenient to walk to from most houses for sale in this city. However, parents and their schoolchildren may consider it difficult to reach high schools on foot. Concerning eating, it is frequently feasible for house buyers in this city to buy their groceries on foot. There are also a few options for those who appreciate restaurants and cafes in close proximity.

Character

Home buyers who prefer a slower-paced environment will enjoy Saskatoon. It is easy to access parks, since there are over 200 of them nearby for residents to check out and a large number of houses for sale have a park a short walk away. This city is also good for those who like quiet surroundings, as the streets are generally quite peaceful - although there are still several louder sections, especially closer to one of the railway lines, Idylwyld Drive South or the airport (YXE).
