Hamilton real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Hamilton is exemplified by its calm environment. Getting to green spaces is easy from many locations in the city, since there are over 400 of them nearby for residents to enjoy and numerous properties have a park within walking distance. This city is also good for those who need quiet surroundings, as the streets are generally reasonably tranquil - although that is not the case closer to one of the railway lines, the airport (YHM), Highway 6 or Lincoln M Alexander Parkway.
Driving is an excellent medium of transportation in this city. It is very convenient to access a place to park. On the other hand, Hamilton is not very transit friendly. Thankfully, property owners benefit from the West Harbour Station and Hamilton GO Centre Station on the Lakeshore West Line. The city is connected by about 40 bus lines, and the closest bus stop is typically within walking distance. It is difficult for pedestrians to move around in Hamilton because carrying out daily needs is impractical on foot. The bicycle is a fairly poor method of transportation in this city as there is a considerable amount of hills, and Hamilton has a rather limited cycling infrastructure.
In Hamilton, roughly 55% of dwellings are single detached homes, and the rest of the properties are mainly large apartment buildings and townhouses. This city offers mainly four or more bedroom and three bedroom homes. Homeowners occupy about two thirds of the units in the city while the remainder are rented. About one third of homes in this city were built prior to the 1960s, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 1960s and the 1980s.
There are only a few high schools and primary schools in Hamilton and accordingly they can be a long walk away. Moreover, families may consider it difficult to reach daycares as a pedestrian. Parents are served by public and private schools at both the elementary and high school level.
