Waterdown is a former village in Southern Ontario. Once a part of the Town of Flamborough, the village of Waterdown was amalgamated into the City of Hamilton along with Flamborough in 2001. The village has a well-documented and preserved history from its founding in the early 19th century, to the present day. This helps Waterdown maintain its independent heritage and spirit while benefiting from the convenience of being near the centre of the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.
Real Estate for Sale in Waterdown Ontario
Compared with the overall area of Flamborough, Waterdown is small, but holds a significant portion of the population. Waterdown is a rapidly growing community with amenities and services that are keeping pace with the demand for housing within the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. Waterdown’s prime location near both Hamilton and Burlington adds to the fantastic features of this already desirable village.
As a popular area for commuters, there are many factors to consider when looking at the Real Estate statistics for Waterdown. In 2019, the average sale price for a residential property in Waterdown was about $700,000. This is cheaper than the average for the surrounding area of Flamborough and nearby Burlington, but more expensive than the regional average for the city of Hamilton. The average price in the city of Hamilton rests around $535,000 because of the number of condo units and semi-detached properties in the more urban area. That being said, many new condo constructions in Waterdown are listed well below the average of the area.

Waterdown is not only well connected by highways, but also by the public transportation network. The Village of Waterdown is located right on Highway 6, which connects to the 400-series not far from Waterdown. Because of that, the Hamilton core is under 15 minutes away, Burlington is less than 20 minutes away, and the core of Toronto is just about an hour away. There is also a route of the Hamilton Street Railway that makes a loop through Waterdown before connecting with the rest of the public transportation system in Hamilton. The main perk of being included in that route is that it also feeds into the GO bus and train network throughout the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.
