Can anyone confirm if Apartment (1 bedroom) Outside of Centre price is accurate? It's way less than some of the other regions.

Very useful numbers
We are looking into moving to Hamilton very soon
Coming from London one of the most expensive city in the word
It's quite interesting these numbers after converting to £ are very close to London's price almost London is cheaper
It would be really helpful and great if someone could proof me wrong !!
Otherwise we have to reconsider our choice we are looking forward to it
Thanks for sharing your experince
