Rental prices in Hamilton, Ontario are going up amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Recent data from rentals.ca says the average cost of a dwelling in Hamilton continued to rise year over year, with a single bedroom unit hitting $1,489 per month in July while the average two-bedroom cost $2,170.
The trend is almost similar to the recent numbers seen in Southern Ontarioâ€™s real estate market in which prices continued to surge despite the pandemic, particularly in the Hamilton-Niagara region.
â€œMonth to month (rents) have been fluctuating a little bit, but year over year rents in Hamilton have gone sky-high,â€ said content director Paul Danison.
Rental market is experiencing the same trend as tenants look for more space outside of the more expensive big cities like Toronto, Danison said.
