The Future of Toronto's Rental Market
Monday Jan 15th, 2018
“Persistently strong rent growth throughout 2017 was simply the result of demand fundamentals for renting far outweighing supply” said Shaun Hildebrand, Urbanation’s Senior Vice President. “This has raised the confidence of developers to add more units to the pipeline, a trend that will need to continue in order to meet future housing needs for the GTA.”
Condo rents, which rose 9 per cent across the region in the last quarter of 2017 to $2,166 on average, are pushing tenants out of the downtown and into buildings in the 905 area, according to a report from market research firm Urbanation.
