Located in Illinois, United States, the city of Moline is situated in the Davenport metropolitan area.
Moline is quiet, as there are low levels of noise from traffic - although there are still several louder areas, especially close to Interstate 74, Interstate 280, one of the railway lines or the airport (Quad City International Airport). Parks aren't well-spread out, which makes them rather challenging to reach. Still, there are a few parks nearby for residents to unwind in, such as Riverside Park.
Most of the housing growth in Moline took place pre-1960. In this city, many of the dwellings are single detached homes, and large apartment buildings are also present in the housing stock. Roughly 70% of the population of this city own their home while the remainder are renters. This city also has a good choice of housing sizes - it is quite easy to find properties ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
A supermarket is generally accessible within a reasonably short walk from most houses for sale in Moline. There are also over 150 restaurants and cafes in Moline. When it comes to education, residents will find that no matter where their property is situated in this part of the Davenport metropolitan area, primary schools are nearby. In contrast, high schools are not particularly abundant and thus not always within walking distance. Besides public schools, there are private elementary and secondary schools.
This city is especially car friendly. The majority of real estate listings are a rather short drive from the closest highway, such as Interstate 280, and it is very easy to park. However, walking is not very convenient for house buyers in Moline since few daily needs can be met on foot.
