What Is Canada’s Next Hot Real Estate Market That Isn’t Toronto or Vancouver?

That’s easy: Hamilton, ON.

Long hailed as the Brooklyn to Toronto’s New York City — a preposterous statement, even still — the Southern Ontario city is officially the second-hottest housing market in Canada. According to the Teranet-National Bank House Price Index, Steeltown’s housing prices jumped nearly 18 per cent in 2017, a figure dwarfed only by nearby Draketown. Though it hasn’t entirely shaken its industrial past, Hamilton’s already quietly teeming with brick-and-beam breweries, CrossFit gyms, and locavore coffee haunts. There’s never been a better time to be a TiCats truther.
