• Hamilton housingSome areas of Hamilton housing market are still doing fine. If you’re looking for Hamilton housing under a half 1 million or condos under 400,000 you are in stiff competition.

    Hamilton real estate board statistics indicate multiple offers for Hamilton housing. In fact, bungalows have increased by 5.4% in the last year and condo prices have gone up 6.8% to a median price of $376,075.

    Let’s not kid ourselves, there are many valid reasons why this is happening.

    In discussions with Dan Gies, branch manager of Royal LePage, he believed “it is homebuyers seeking entry-level homes with the possibility of extra income with potential basement apartments”. In fact, let’s review two recent sales:

    1. A recent bungalow just sold on Macassa Drive and it had six offers.

    2. A recent one story on East 37th had 27 offers!

    The reasons behind these recent trends in Hamilton housing include Mr. Gies’ description but also:

    • Affordability
    • Demographics [older clientele want no stairs]
    • Escalating rents
    • The mortgage stress test is another big factor [consumers could afford less]

    At Robert Floris’ Mortgage Architects we take pride in delivering facts to really help the average mortgage or think. Well, here is the bad news. According to a recent Royal LePage study, the median price of a two story home has dropped year over year by 3% to $580,380. The final analysis is the Hamilton housing market is still fairly strong but some areas are much stronger than others.
