Yet it is still a good time to find an affordable rental in Toronto, with the average rent of a two-bedroom apartment being ~$2,300. However, the neighborhood you’ll move into will significantly impact the of rent price. Neighborhoods like the Fashion District, Cabbagetown, Riverdale or Regent town offer an average rent of between $2,350 to $2,700 for two-bedroom apartments. While to a one-bedroom apartment goes for ~$1,850 for in these neighborhoods. So by just renting a room instead of an entire apartment, you can still live in the more expensive areas, and still save money on rent.
