Re: Doom – Vacancy rates drop big

Rents have gone up in my area (Yaletown). It's not pleasant trying to upgrade from our 1bd + den to a 2bd.

We started renting here in 2010, our lovely landlord has not increased the rent at all. When I look around, we are paying below the current market for our place, by about $200 easy.
