ASK THE EXPERT

The Hamilton real estate market is diverse and set for future growth. The Newcastle CBD is heading towards the West End and Hamilton is right next door, making the area more sought after for people wanting to be in the centre of the action and close to the shopping and dining hub of Beaumont Street.

We see a very eclectic mix of properties in Hamilton, ranging from very affordable apartments, miners cottages, terraces and federation homes with large parcels of land on Cameron’s Hill. This range of properties brings first home buyers, renovators, investors and larger families to the area.

There are many apartment complexes being built and set to drive future population and price growth. ‘Atrium’ on Tudor Street has all but sold out and last month produced the suburb’s first apartment sale over $1 million. 

Hamilton property owners can be confident knowing their assets are experiencing good growth and they are living in one of the city’s most sought-after suburbs.
