There are numbers behind the hype about hot market conditions in Hamilton's core.
Home prices in central Hamilton have risen by the largest percentage of any sub-region in the Hamilton and Burlington region in the past decade, according to numbers from the Realtors Association of Hamilton-Burlington, which keeps the official stats.
That "Hamilton Centre" area in question stretches from James North in the west to Kenilworth in the east, and from the waterfront in the north to the escarpment in the south.
There, the median price for homes sold in 2006 was $120,529.
Last year, the median price was $226,989.
That's an increase of 88.3 per cent, which was the highest percentage increase of any of the 14 areas the realtors association has divided the Hamilton and Burlington region into.
It's still the lowest-priced area in the region, but it narrowed the gap to the next cheapest, Hamilton East.
