As home prices drop, rents are on the rise in Mississauga.

Anyone looking to buy a home in Mississauga will find prices have dropped but with high-interest rates many are choosing to find rentals.

That is likely part of the reason why average monthly rents surpassed $2,000 in Canada with no signs of slowing down, according to Rentals.ca  and Urbanation latest National Rent Report.

“Rents in Canada are rising at an exceptionally high speed, which is having a profound effect on housing affordability as interest rates continue to rise,” said Shaun Hildebrand, president of Urbanation. “With the most expensive cities experiencing very low supply and the fastest rates of rent increase, regions with high population growth are seeing demand shift into more affordable areas.”

Average rents rose 12.4 per cent year over year in November to $2,024, increasing 2.5 per cent from October and up 4.9 per cent in the last three months.
