How Do Winnipeg Rental Prices Compare?

Every April CMHC publishes their Rental Market Indicators and we thought it would be interesting to show how Winnipeg compares to the rest of the country.

Vacancy Rates: April 2008-April 2009 --> Our vacancy rate went from 1.0% to 0.9%

Our average rent for a 2 bedroom unit went from $746 to $774, resulting in a 3.4% increase.

This compares fairly well with the rest of the country. Saskatchewan blows us out of the water, however.
Saskatoon and Regina had 15.5% and11.4% increases (respectively) during the same period!

See the entire chart here:

What does this mean?

If you are a tenant: Winnipeg is not increasing any faster than most places in the country.
At GaraMark we try to keep our rental prices slightly below market to attract the best tenants.

If you're an investor: rising maintenance and utility costs continue to outpace the rental increases. Residential Tenancies Branch has set the 2010 allowable rent increase to a whopping 1 percent!
