Hamilton real estate guide & listings for sale
Home buyers who prefer a relaxed atmosphere will enjoy Hamilton. It is easy to reach green spaces, since getting to the closest one from a large number of houses for sale is occasionally hard and there are over 400 parks close by for residents to visit. This city is also quiet, as there isn't a lot of street noise or city clamour - however some parts can be quite noisy, especially near the airport (YHM), Queen Elizabeth Way, Highway 403 or one of the railway lines.
This city is an extraordinarily good part of the Greater Hamilton metropolitan area for moving around by car. Parking is generally easy.

Commuting by bicycle is also difficult in this city as there are few bike lanes, and cyclists are faced with quite a few hills.
