One of the biggest perks in the Acadia real estate market is affordability - this area offers great value and a lot of homes that hit the market are seen as very affordable, which in turn makes the neighborhood very attractive to a variety of buyers including first time home buyers and younger families. In Acadia you'll also find affordable townhomes, condominiums, and semi-detached properties!
The Acadia community association provides a large variety of recreational activities including squash courts, curling, hockey and more!
