Average rent across Montreal

First, we’ll take a look at rental trends over the last six months for an unfurnished one-bedroom apartment in Montreal. This month, we’re seeing a continuation of last month’s slight upward trend — it’ll be interesting to see if this continues through the rest of the year.

Up until this month, we’ve seen average prices jump between $1,193 and $1,218 pretty consistently, and October could well be the start of a break from this pattern.

Montreal unfurnished vs. furnished rent averages

The difference between furnished and unfurnished one-bedroom averages has once again risen to a $264 difference.

What this means is that, for landlords and property managers, renting out a furnished suite could yield higher returns long-term, although these wider margins aren’t necessarily exemplary of the norm. For renters, you can still save significantly on rent if you are able to bring your own furniture.
