If you want to live downtown, you might feel like all your money is going towards a tiny shoebox. Meanwhile, if you are willing to sacrifice the location, you can get more bang for your buck. To help you out, we've made a list of what a $2,000 Metro Vancouver apartment looks like across the city.

As a local, it will come as no surprise that Vancouver is one of the most expensive places in Canada to live.

According to Rentals.ca rental report, the average one-bedroom in Vancouver in 2019 comes in just a few dollars below $2000. But, this number is forecasted to inflate to a jaw-dropping $2,585 per month by the end of 2020.

Thankfully, there are some areas in the city where you can find much cheaper rentals. As $2,000 can go much further in the suburbs than it can in the downtown core.

You might be surprised to see how much you can get for the same price as a downtown bachelor pad.

If you crave space for all your stuff, for the same price, you can get a newly renovated three-bedroom without adding too much time to your daily commute.

This is what you can get for less than $2000 a month right now in the different neighbourhoods:
