Barrie ranks high on a nationwide list, but it’s not exactly a positive one…unless you’re a landlord.
The city ranks in the Top 5 of Padmapper’s “Most Expensive Places To Rent In Canada.” The price of a 1-bedroom apartment here will run you about $1,100 per month, not including util/parking.
“Barrie was able to find its way up into the top five rankings thanks to a huge spike in one bedroom rents. Median price for one bedroom units is currently $1,100, up 4.8% since last month. Two bedroom units, on the other hand, had rents down 1.5% to $1,330.” – Padmapper.com
We’re not to be outdone by our friends down the 400 though, Toronto ranks #2 on the list where a 1-bedroom will run you $1,700.
No surprise, Vancouver ranks #1….because it’s Vancouver.
