Laval

Laval is a city located in the Greater Montréal metropolitan area, which is part of Quebec, Canada.

Housing

Roughly one third of properties in Laval were constructed in the 1960s and 1970s, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 1980s. In this city, roughly 45% of dwellings are single detached homes, while the rest are mainly small apartment buildings and townhouses. Homeowners occupy around 70% of the dwellings in Laval and the remainder are rented. This city has a good variety of unit sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.

Transportation

The car is very often the preferred transportation option in Laval. It is convenient to find a parking spot, and the majority of real estate listings are a rather short car ride from the closest highway, such as Autoroute Chomedey. However, this part of the Greater Montréal metropolitan area is not particularly transit friendly. Thankfully, residents can rely on the Île-Bigras Station, Vimont Station and Sainte-Rose Station with access to the Saint-Jérôme Line and Deux-Montagnes Line. Commuters are served by Cartier Station, Montmorency Station and De la Concorde Station on the Orange Line. The city is linked by over 50 bus lines, and most residences are very close to a bus stop. It is sometimes challenging for pedestrians to navigate Laval since few daily errands can be run on foot.

Services

It is often possible for property owners in this part of the Greater Montréal metropolitan area to do their groceries on foot. There are also a limited number of choices for those who appreciate nearby restaurants and cafes. With respect to education, in Laval, families will often be able to get to daycares and primary schools on foot. However, high schools are not very plentiful and consequently not always within walking distance. Along with public schools, there are private elementary and high schools.

Character

Home buyers who prefer a calm atmosphere will enjoy Laval. This city features a small amount of greenery; to be more precise, residents will find that the majority of streets have sub-par tree coverage. However, there are over 300 parks nearby for residents to enjoy, which results in them being easy to reach from many locations within Laval. This part of the Greater Montréal metropolitan area is also quiet, as noise from the streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - although that is not the case near one of the railway lines, Autoroute Laval Ouest or Autoroute Papineau.
