Vancouver and Toronto families are moving to Hamilton in response to rising housing prices
It comes as no surprise that many families in the Vancouver and Toronto areas, specifically in the downtown cores, are moving due to the rise in urban housing prices. Working class citizens are losing out on property investments. Families are looking to earn a profit while living in a new area that provides stability, jobs, a friendly neighbourhood, community activities, urban structure and more. This is why many Torontonians and Vancouverites are moving specifically to Hamilton. Hamilton provides everything a family needs: jobs, education (with McMaster University, Mohawk College and many reputable elementary and secondary schools), parks, restaurants, bike lanes, events, hiking trails/waterfalls, diversity, etc. A recent Maclean’s article interviewed a Canadian woman who made the move to Hamilton. She stated, ‘“A lot of what attracted me was Hamilton’s arts and culture scene,” said Holly… a 30-year-old software professional who recently purchased a pre-construction condo in Steeltown and plans to make the move from Toronto once it’s finished… Knowlman says she loves Toronto, but all of the units she looked at in her price range were bachelors under 500 square feet. Her future home in Hamilton is nearly twice that size with an extra room, a walk-in closet, a balcony and a fireplace.’ The article also went on to say how the woman had “gotten more cash flow in… [her] life… [She has]… more space in [her] home. Even out in the city there’s more space. You’re not fighting for a spot at the park or in the bike lanes. You’ve got room to breathe on the sidewalks.”’ As a result, Hamilton seems like the go-to spot for those looking to save money, earn more money and live a better quality of life. This is why Zeina Homes provides a selection of custom and model homes throughout Hamilton and Southern Ontario area.
