Located in Michigan, United States, the city of Troy is situated in the Detroit metropolitan area.
Troy is reasonably good for those who prefer a quiet atmosphere, as there are generally low levels of noise from traffic - although that is not the case closer to Interstate 75, the railway line or the airport (Oakland-Troy Airport). It is sometimes hard to reach green spaces from a large number of locations in the city since they aren't well-located. Still, there are around 20 parks close by for residents to explore.
In Troy, the majority of buildings are single detached homes, while the rest are mainly small apartment buildings. This city has a variety of unit sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Roughly three quarters of the population of this city own their home while the rest are renters. This city experienced its most significant housing boom in the 1960s and 1970s, so most of the available housing stock is from this era.
Some, but not all, property owners in Troy will live within walking distance of one of over 50 grocery stores. Residents benefit from over 300 restaurants and coffee shops as well. In terms of education, primary schools are convenient to walk to from most homes for sale in Troy. In contrast, locals may find it challenging to access high schools on foot. Locals can choose between public and private schools at both the elementary and secondary school level.
A car is an excellent medium of transportation in Troy. Most homes for sale are a reasonably short drive from the nearest highway, such as Interstate 75, and it is very convenient to find a place to park. In contrast, walking is not particularly convenient for property owners in Troy since few daily errands can be run on foot.
