Barrie is number eight on the list of the most expensive places to rent a one-bedroom in Canada.
According to rental listing platform Zumper.com, the figure this month is down three positions from the summer ranking of most expensive Canadian places to rent.
A one-bedroom rental in Barrie is about $1,700, up three per cent month-to-month, while two-bedroom rentals month-to-month jumped nearly six per cent to $1,960.
Vancouver is the most expensive city in Canada to rent a one-bedroom, with an average price of $2,500, which remained flat on a monthly basis. Zumper says Vancouver’s slowdown may be signalling that a rent ceiling has been hit. However, two-bedroom rentals are up 25 per cent over last year to $3,630.
Toronto held onto second place, with one-bedrooms fetching around $2,090.
That was followed by Victoria, Burnaby and Kelowna.
Ottawa and Oshawa also made the top 10 for one-bedroom rentals.
The cheapest place to rent a one-bedroom in the 24-city report is St. John’s, Newfoundland, with an average price of $860.
