A suburb of Halifax, Bedford is comprised of middle-class professionals who love living in a small community while working in nearby Halifax and Dartmouth, both of which are only 15 minutes away. With a population of 30,000 residents, it offers relaxing waterfront views and parks containing walking trails and picnic areas. A family-friendly community, Bedford welcomes new residents each year, and as a result has a thriving economy and real estate market.
Due to the presence of many government employees, new housing is always in demand. Having a market described as strong and steady, the city has an average home price of $330,000, which is up from $286,000 only one year ago. As more people choose to leave rural areas to live closer to the many offerings of Halifax and nearby communities, Bedford has been the beneficiary. From families and retirees to young professionals who prefer the many new condos and townhouses that have been built in recent years, the local real estate market shows no signs of slowing down in the months ahead.
From Sunnyside Elementary to C.P. Allen High School, Bedford boasts some of the best schools in Nova Scotia. Offering numerous extracurricular activities, the latest technology, and programs for students planning on attending college as well as vocational programs for those wanting to enter the workforce upon graduation, Bedford's school system prepares students for whatever life path they wish to take. And with even more renovations planned in the next several years, the school system will be able to offer even more innovation to its students.
For Bedford residents, there is no shortage of fun activities. Since sailing is a passion of many local residents, the Bedford Basin Yacht Club is the place to go for sailing lessons. But for many people, the annual Bedford Days celebration is a must to attend. Featuring its world-famous free pancake breakfast, Rubber Duck Dash, and Dog Show, it's a great event for those young and old. And when Christmas rolls around, the Light Up Bedford Parade is always an exciting extravaganza.
