No, I'm renting in Toronto which is expensive for no good reason.I hope you are renting in a terrific part of Canada and that is why you are paying heaps in rent.
Sounds about right, depending on how much space you get.In Sydney rents are going through the roof. A friend of mine started renting a 2 bedroom apartment in my area 2 years ago at $250 per week. The rent in the last year has gone up to $350.00. 1 year ago you were lucky to get $200 a week in rent for a place in my building, This year they are asking $270 and getting it.
We actually lucked out at 1375$ a month, without utilities, net, cable, or anything else.
We have the first floor and basement of a house.. 2 bedroom, 1 bath but it has a backyard that we share and a deck.. central air, central vac, and a garage for storage.
my roomate and i apparently got the place because, according to our landlord, we looked like we wouldn't trash the place. Far from it, we repainted it, installed new light fixtures, and decorated it fabulously
