The Guelph rental market saw very few changes from month to month, according to the new May 2019 report from Padmapper, a rental apartment finding service.

Eight major Canadian cities saw an increase in rental prices, while three saw a decrease.  Thirteen other major cities simply remained flat, according to Padmapper.

“While more than half of the total cities continued to have flat monthly growth rates, the cities that experienced an upward trend actually more than doubled when compared to the previous rent report,” said Padmapper.

The top five priciest markets in Canada remained mostly the same from last month, with Barrie pushing out Victoria, BC, for fifth place.
