Vancouver comes in 2nd place for most expensive cities to rent in Canada

Numerous end of year summary reports indicated that the Canadian real estate market effectively achieved a soft landing. Over the past year and half, the industry has experienced a seismic shift that has brought the astronomical prices of 2017 back down to Earth. Rising interest rates, foreign homeowner taxes and rising household debt have all been strong forces acting on the market.

All of these factors have created an environment where housing affordability measures are at all time highs, and are expected to increase. Many of the top cities in Canada are expected to see rental rates increase anywhere between 7-11% by the end of 2019, and despite the dip in buying prices, rental prices are showing no signs of slowing down.
