Here are the three key trends and data points that believes Montrealers would be interested in:

  1. Montreal's city-wide average rent for an unfurnished, one-bedroom unit has soared to $1,300 this month.
  2. Hochelaga-Maisonneuve is now the cheapest neighbourhood to rent an unfurnished one-bedroom apartment in Montreal, at an average of $1,071.
  3. Plateau-Mont-Royal had the most significant rent increases for both furnished and unfurnished units, at +23.33% and +10.94% respectively.

According to, the average price for a one-bedroom unfurnished unit in Montreal is $1,300 this month, whereas the average price for a furnished place the same size is $1,446.

Whether you're hoping to find a one-, two- or three-bedroom apartment in Montreal, the table below gives you a little idea of what price range you should be expecting to pay for an unfurnished place this month by neighbourhood.

Downtown has the highest average prices in the city for unfurnished apartments this month.'s report shows that the cheapest of these 11 areas to get a one- or two-bedroom is in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve. And for three-bedroom apartments, the most affordable spot is said to be Verdun this month.
