If you are a First Time Homebuyer, just getting into the Real Estate Market, and especially if you are re-locating from outside the Hamilton-Burlington area, it would be a great idea to sit down with a local Real Estate Agent and let us show you the statistics. We can teach you which area values are going up the fastest...the up and coming districts. If you are thinking about buying a house for $250,000, check and see what the average sales are in that area to make sure the average is not well below the amount you are paying. One of the best ways to protect your investment is to buy a home at or below the average in the best area possible.

For instance, if you look at the chart below, Hamilton Mountain had an average sales price of $301,953 for October 2014. The mountain is split up into six districts, West Mountain, districts 15, and 16, Central Mountain, districts 17 and 18, and East Mountain, districts 25 and 26. Year to date the averages in each of those districts range from a low of $252,422 in district 17 (North Central Hamilton Mountain) to a high of $333,220 in district 15 (South West Hamilton Mountain). Therefore buying your first home for $250,000 anywhere on the mountain is an excellent investment.
