YOU HAD ME AT "DOOR"...


...And you lost me there too.

153 Robinson Street, in Hamilton, Ontario, is FRESH on the market but not yet listed on REALTOR.ca.


Gorgeous curb appeal with this charming red brick Victorian, but it loses me once I get past the front door (Amazing porthole window with arched portico).

Sure, its located in a "good" area close to Locke but its a small 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath house on a narrow lot and they are asking $489,900. South of Aberdeen or Amisfield* Days - I get it - but this is a few streets north and 2013 (Robinson is not the exclusive street it used to be).

That being said, I'm sure it will sell to an out of town buyer who sees value vs. locals who see inflated prices (see below comp from 1 year ago**).
