Kitchener Vacancies Plummet

Between July 2016 and June 2017, 1,293 condominium apartments were completed with 30.3% of those being rentals. The rental condominium apartment vacancy rate was a mere  0.7% in September 2017, indicating a lack of supply and a high demand for luxury rental options in new buildings with more amenities. 

Rental Households Skyrocket

Since 2011, the increase in number of rental households by income has been staggering. Propensity to rent can be attributed to aging populations and market changes.
