Finding somewhere affordable to live in the city might seem like a daunting task. For all of you hoping to find somewhere to call home that won't break the bank, there are some budget-friendly options out there. But you will want to claim them quickly before they are gone. To help you find a new place to live, we've gathered up cheap apartments in Vancouver that are available right now.
Unlike other cities in Canada, the housing market is overly expensive for what you get. Many locals might feel like your entire paycheque goes to your landlord.
According to Rentals.ca, rent in Vancouver is 112% higher than the Canadian average. What that means for us, the market rate for a one-bedroom is $2,194.
Thankfully it isn't all bad news. With a bit of searching, you can find plenty of stylish condos well below that price.
This month we've spotted all sorts of cute places that you can afford. For example, there is an apartment with a den that could become the perfect office.
Or, if you are looking for a cozy spot to read, another listing has a fireplace in the living room. But that is not all, some also come with in-unit laundry and some of the utilities included.
With all the extra money you can save on your accommodations, you can put it towards saving up for your own tiny home.
