It's great to see projects like Harry Stinson's lofts condos and the revitalization of areas in transition in Hamilton. With reports out about Hamilton being a good place to invest in real estate and the trend of more people from the GTA area discovering and becoming interested in Hamilton (re: affordability and what this community has to offer) it is no wonder there is a trend of prices continuing to rise and areas of the city especially those areas in transition. Many of the younger adults that I meet prefer to live in a vibrant, downtown area, with cultural significance, stores, restaurants, etc. within walking distance. They are leading the trend to revitalize downtown areas along with people wanting to invest in Hamilton who are building and purchasing rental properties. There are great opportunities in Hamilton especially if purchasing in areas of transition. Also if you are near the B-line bus service (from MacMaster University to Eastgate Mall) it makes bus travel much quicker. Students love to live in Central Hamilton. With the west end of Hamilton being close to the 403 Highway, and the east end close to the Red Hill Creek Expressway - commuting to the GTA is much easier from these locations and being discovered by people who cannot afford to purchase a home any closer to GTA. The opening of the new GO Station prior to the Pan Am games, off Centennial Parkway near the QEW and beside the newer Walmart store, is also great news for commuters and investors. Many people are still unaware that it is under construction. I'm Hamilton born & raised and my appreciation for the city keeps growing the longer I live here. I especially enjoy the scenery (escarpment/lake/bay/waterfalls/Bruce Trail/view looking over the city from the Mountain/etc.), the diversity, character, culture, and all of the benefits of Hamilton.
Hamilton is a great city!
