East Hamilton/Stoney Creek

It seems that in the lower Red Hill corridor that houses going on the market are not listed long? I see what appears to be an influx of Torontonians. Is there a big increase in relocation here?
Are Torontonians seeing what they can get here at a fair prioe and would East Hamilton be similar to say Scarborough?
Funny how I see people here going to Binbrook or Brantford.
Just curious as at least 5 homes that I saw were sold in days. And people moving in on a advanced closing date.

I live in that area (near Barton and the Red Hill) and houses in my neighborhood have definitely been selling fast, and there has been a lot of them. It also seems like a lot more "young professional" types are starting to move in. For the longest time this area has mostly been a welfare ghetto (owing to the huge amount of Hamilton Housing units in and around Oriole Crescent) so it's a refreshing change.

Lots of renovations going on too.
"Above all, Hamilton must learn to think like a city, not a suburban hybrid where residents drive everywhere. What makes Hamilton interesting is the fact it's a city. The sprawl that surrounds it, which can be found all over North America, is running out of time."
