The cost of renting an apartment in Montreal has been a hot topic of debate recently, and a new report looks to shed some light on just how expensive rent is in our city. 

According to liv.rent, Montreal did see a slight decrease in average prices since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic but now it seems rent is starting to go up yet again.

The report looks at the average rent price in nine Montreal neighbourhoods, average rates by listing type, and more. And according to the results, the report points to an upward trend into 2020 following a fourth-quarter low in rental rates in 2019.

The average rent in Montreal for an unfurnished one-bedroom apartment in January was $1,403 up slightly from December’s $1,399. The average cost of a furnished apartment remained the same as December at $1,715.

The report also shows a breakdown of rental averages across other Greater Montreal neighbourhoods. Comparing 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom rates for both unfurnished and furnished listings across each neighbourhood.
