Apartment hunting anywhere in the GTA can get expensive. However, when it comes to Toronto rent prices, now might be the time to pack your bags. Rental rates are continuing to drop across the GTA, and Toronto Rentals has revealed some of the cheapest cities to live in.
In a report released by Toronto Rentals, it was revealed that the average rent prices in the GTA have dipped down by 6-10% this year in areas such as North York, Markham, Mississauga, and Oakville.
If you're looking to save your wallet, there a few cities that are cheaper to live in than others.
As of May 2020, Burlington, Scarborough, Ajax, and Pickering should be your top choices for cheap rent.
All of these areas have an average rent for all property types that sits below $2,000.
Pickering is the cheapest on the list at an average cost of just $1,860.
Opposed to Toronto's average price of $2,380, it seems pretty affordable.
On the downside, it does put you about 30 minutes outside of the city, so if you don't like commuting, you might want to swing for Scarborough.
While these establishments are no longer there, one building has remained for over 200 years and with it a mystery that goes back just as long.
