Here's What $800 In Rent Can Get You In 7 Montreal Areas
Some may be better than others...
With Montreal's average listing rent exceeding $1,600 this year, your chances of finding a home for less may be dwindling. But that doesn't mean there aren't cheaper apartments out there, though they might not be downtown or in Westmount. For those who are comfortable sharing a home with a stranger, the prospects are a little better, but this list is primarily composed of apartments meant for one person.
The size, and frankly, the quality of each apartment will vary by area and price point, but we stuck to places at or under the $800 threshold to see what's out there at half the average rent. Peruse these available rentals to get a glimpse of what renting really looks like for those who aren't on software dev salaries, or just to think about how lucky you are to live in that Parc La Fontaine-view walkup.
