Best Neighborhoods to Live in Hamilton

There are no really scientific ways to choose the best neighborhoods, in Hamilton or elsewhere. What is vitally important to one family, or to one individual, may be low on the priority list for others. However, if you are considering Hamilton as your next home, there are specific things you might want to look for when narrowing your search. 

Hamilton has been termed a top city for real estate investment opportunity, and that also is reason enough to consider it as a place to place your money and put down roots. In deciding where to locate, look at the development that has taken place, and at what is ongoing. 

Situated along the shore of Lake Ontario, and known as the city of waterfalls, Hamilton has a number of distinct neighbourhoods, some with significant older homes. Many are characterized by their architecture, green spaces and beauty. Some might be in need of updating, but could become beauties once again with just a little work. If you're enamored of bringing new life to fine old architecture, this could be just the venue for your efforts. Dundas is historic, quiet and pleasant, and scattered new development blends nicely with the more historic areas. 

Neighbourhoods like Burlington, Stoney Creek and Ancaster are growing. St. Clair, near Gage Park, is one of the most beautiful areas in the city. Bayfront is appealing; young middle class urban pioneers are moving to the lower city and doing their part to revitalize that area. 

Choosing a community is really a very personal decision, and in Hamilton you have a lot of options, based on the lifestyle you seek. Assess your needs carefully, then consult a qualified real estate professional to find the type of neighbourhood that suits you. Also be mindful of your budget. 

If you have children in school or involved in specific activities, you will want to consider their needs. Locating near Churchill Park in Westdale Village, or finding an East Mountain home convenient to Mohawk Sports Park will not only make your children happy, but can ease your lifestyle as well. Time spent in the car transporting children to activities is, after all, time spent! Consider the schools, the commuting time, and the local services in an effort to make wise choices for relocating. 

With so many options available, take your time getting to know Hamilton before making a decision.
