Edmonton Rental Market Update March 2022

Updated: Apr 14, 2022

2022 has taken us all for a spin. The pandemic is slowing down and most countries are starting to open back up, which has provided a much-needed boost to the economy. Just when things were looking up, Russia took swift action and invaded Ukraine with the whole world watching.

Canada's Rising Rent 

The uncertainty of everything has been enough to drive the market mad, including the rental housing market. Rent in Canada has been steadily rising for several years now, this year up 4.4% compared to the last. This makes it an unpredictable moment to buy in, as it’s uncertain what the market will do. 

For those looking to purchase property in Canada, rental rates are, on average, around $1,800. Edmonton offers better, more competitive rates, with average rentals around $1,000. This alone is a driving factor of the increase in interest from properties in the area, leaving many to start investing now.

Edmonton's Appeal

There is not a big push to rent properties due to increased job influx or any wave of immigration, two things that tend to drive up rates around Canada. Edmonton has all the appeal without the overcrowding or demand, which is why the rates are attractive to buyers of all budgets.

Among the types of apartments that have sharply decreased in price are those of luxury, including condos. This means that an average Canadian earner can afford a condo in most circumstances, purchasing a luxury home in a good area for way less than market value.

This is a definite selling point when it comes to those on the hunt for good deals, especially young buyers, newlyweds, and even small families. Getting ahold of potential tenants can be difficult on one’s own, which is why it helps to have all-in-one services to get the process started.
