Quebec's moving day is here and there's no sign that Montreal rent is cooling off.
A recent report from the Regroupement des comités logement
et associations de locataires du Québec (RCLALQ) says that the province is seeing a rent "explosion."
A liv.rent report shared with MTL Blog offers a snapshot of that phenomenon. The report shows that the average rent for an unfurnished, one-bedroom apartment is now above $1,000/month — in some cases, well above — in nine of Montreal's most popular boroughs and neighbourhoods.
Here's the breakdown:
Downtown Montreal: $1,437/month for an unfurnished, one-bedroom apartment
Saint-Henri and Westmount: $1,308
