You know the old story of the tortoise and the hare? When it comes to housing markets, Toronto and Vancouver are hares, while Edmonton is a tortoise. The housing market here is slowly but steadily building. The nice thing with this slow build is that you can still find highly affordable options in most parts of the city, giving you your pick of any Edmonton houses for rent in any neighbourhoods. Plus prices don’t tend to fly up and down, making it easy to move if you’re feeling like a change.
Typical housing type:
Single-family homes and low-rise apartment buildings.
Edmonton is an unusual blend of whimsical and sophisticated. Even if you aren’t looking to live here, at the very least pop in for a visit. Then, while you’re there, let your inner child have a romp around. You’ll be glad you did!
