Living in the 6ix suddenly doesn't look so bad.
If you're one of the many people thinking about fleeing Toronto rent prices for something cheaper, you're probably going to want to stay away from Barrie.
The city's one-bedroom rent climbed up to a whopping 4.8% with a median of $1,730. This beat Toronto, which is currently sitting at $1,710 for a one-bedroom.
However, if you're looking to rent a two-bedroom in the 6ix, it is slightly more expensive at $2,200, while Barrie sits at a median of $1,920.
"For the first time ever, Toronto fell out of the top 2 markets to rank as the 4th most expensive city. Toronto one-bedroom rent experienced the largest monthly decline in the country, dropping 5% to $1,710, which is the lowest it's been since February 2017," an excerpt from the report reads.
Currently, the most expensive spots to rent in all of Canada for a one-bedroom are as follows:
- Vancouver, BC
- Burnaby, BC
- Barrie, ON
