Key Takeaways from Steve Huebl

  1. Record-Breaking Prices: Rent prices in Canada soared to a record average of $2,117, marking a 10% annual increase. This upward trend continued with a 1.8% monthly surge since July.

  2. Brampton’s Spike: Brampton, ON, led the pack with a jaw-dropping 29% YoY increase in one-bedroom rent. In just a month, the average rent in Brampton surged by 3.3% to $2,274.

  3. Supply vs. Demand: Surprisingly, despite a surge in rental apartment construction, rent inflation remains unchecked. A severe housing shortage, driven by a growing population, is keeping demand high.
