“The 4.3 per cent increase in average asking rent from August to September is the largest monthly increase since Rentals.ca and Bullpen Consulting began publishing this report in 2018,” said Ben Myers, president of Bullpen Research & Consulting in a press release.
“Part of the increase is attributable to larger units on the market, and high-end building completions adding expensive listings, but rental demand has increased significantly with the continued interest rate hikes, falling ownership house prices, and changing post-pandemic preferences,” he said.
