July 1 is fast approaching and while the rest of the country is celebrating Canada Day, Quebecers are preparing for what we call “moving day”. Sure, we have our Canada Day festivities, but moving trucks are more of a common scene than fireworks in la belle province.
If you are currently looking for apartments to rent in Montreal, things can often get confusing, disappointing and downright overwhelming.
With skyrocketing rents in Montreal, it’s certainly not easy to find an apartment for less than $1,000 in 514.
Whether you’re looking for a 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, or an apartment with air conditioning and a bath, getting what you want in a price range that works for you can be a hassle. So we have a few sites that might make the apartment search process a little easier.
You can’t go wrong with Kijiji. The classifieds site not only lets you search for everything from furniture to vehicles to jobs, but you can also spot great real estate and apartments available for rent in the city.
PadMapper is easily one of your best options. Not only does it let you search for apartment rentals in countless cities across North America, it lets you choose your price range, type and size of accommodation, and provides an interactive map so that you can focus on a specific area of Montreal that you’ve got your sights set on.
Rentals.ca is a must! The site lets you put in how much rent you want to pay, what type of accommodation you want to live in, how many bedrooms you want, and a range of other filters to narrow down your selections so you don’t not feel too overwhelmed when choosing your next living space.
Ah, the Facebook Marketplace. If you can’t find luck on more traditional sites for apartment rentals, then Marketplace definitely has you covered – it’s where I found my current apartment in Montreal.
With filters to select price range, type and size of apartment and, of course, direct communication with the owner via Messenger, the process is more than simple.
While you might have reservations about using Craigslist to research your next apartment, you might be surprised at what you can find.
Similar to PadMapper, you can select an array of choices after filtering the options you want with an interactive map that lets you zoom in on a specific area of Montreal while showcasing photos of the space and details regarding what’s included and how to contact the owner.
Kangalou is a great place for landlords and renters to post and discover new homes for rent in 514. You can select specific neighborhoods, enter a rental price range, and even select which utilities you’d like to have included in your apartment. .
The CLV Group website allows you to really find a spot that meets each of your needs. You can find a range of furnished, semi-furnished and unfurnished apartments for rent in Montreal while being able to take virtual tours and talk to agents about the units you are interested in.
