How the house with the big rent problem is getting rented out in Hamilton

How the property in Hamilton’s West End has been rented out is not always a good thing.

For one thing, it’s expensive.

And that’s what’s really hurting the city’s rental market.

The median rent in Hamilton was $1,874 a month in December 2016, up 3.3 per cent from $1 of the same month in 2015, according to data from the Greater Toronto Area Office of Housing.

And it’s rising again, by about a third, with average rent increases of 11 per cent in the past year.

It’s not just the housing market that is causing trouble.

Hamilton’s Downtown area has also seen rents soar, rising by almost 17 per cent between July and September, the most since October 2009.

That’s partly because of a recent housing shortage, and partly because the region’s population has grown.

That’s also why the number of people who have been on rent assistance rose to 11,800, or 10 per cent of the city.

The average rent in the downtown area was $2,079 in December, up 5.9 per cent since November 2015, but that’s still a significant increase.

It doesn’t help that the average rent for a one-bedroom in the city is $1.2, up from $860 a year ago.

That figure is up from the $1 a year that was in the January to March period.

In fact, the average price for a two-bedroom house in Hamilton is $2.7, up 8.7 per cent, while the average for a three-bedroom is $4,918.

In other words, the price of a typical house in the Hamilton area has jumped more than 10 per per cent this year.

This means that the median rent for someone living in Hamilton could easily double, if there are any vacancies in the area.

Renters say it’s also causing real estate brokers to get greedy.

They are using this to drive up the prices of properties in Hamilton, says David Tingley, a broker at Hamilton-based Hamilton Real Estate and Rentals.

The company that manages the city-owned West End property is now asking people to buy at inflated prices.

Tingley says there are two reasons for this: The prices have gone up so much in recent years, and there’s more competition for places.

The company has had to cut down on its supply to keep up with demand.

The prices are so high that the market is oversupplied and that has to be addressed, he says.

This is a big problem because the average monthly rent in downtown Hamilton has risen from $3,749 in December to $3.948.

And while the city may not have as many vacancies, there are many more properties in the Downtown area.

Tingle says that as more and more people move into the area, the market will eventually get oversupply, and people will start asking for rent.

“There’s going to be a very high price point, and it’s going get much, much higher,” he says, “because of the competition from other places.”

Tingle is also concerned about the quality of the rental market, which he says is still struggling to find homes for rent in a city where the average home price is $519,000.

He says it’s not unusual for properties to be bought and sold and that is what he’s concerned about.

It could also lead to the property prices in Hamilton rising further, if the city continues to lose residents to the suburbs.

In other words: Hamilton will have to pay more in rent to get people to move out of the Downtown, and more to attract new people to the city to make up for lost population.

That will make it harder for Hamilton to meet its affordable housing target of 1.3 million by 2035.

“If you look at it in terms of supply, you need a lot more people,” Tingle says.

“I think that’s a very real possibility in a few years’ time.”

A spokesperson for the city of Hamilton said it is working with the Downtown Hamilton Association and its partners to address the problem.

They said the Downtown’s community and employment hub has been providing rental assistance for more than 25 years, so there is a strong base of renters, which is a good starting point for addressing this issue.

“The Downtown has a vibrant and supportive housing community, which will not be affected by the new requirements in the City’s plan,” the spokesperson said in an email.

Hamilton’s Downtown is a major transit hub and has seen an influx of new businesses, which in turn has helped attract more residents.

“It’s a lot of people moving into the downtown,” says Tingle.

“It’s getting more expensive to live there.

We need more of it.”
