Rental Market

Vacancy rates in Barrie have decreased in the past several years, and now hover around 2% or lower. The increase of demand for rental units can be attributed to higher employment among young people and fewer people moving into homeownership. Based on Barrie’s population, the primary rental market in the city is the smallest in the province. This means that any small changes in demand can affect the vacancy rate significantly. Because of the high demand for units, rent costs have been increasing slightly over the past few years, particularly for one-bedroom and two-bedroom units. Rental semi-detached houses, row houses, and duplexes make up a greater proportion of rental units than traditional apartment buildings do. The average rent costs for Barrie range from $750 for a bachelor apartment to $1,300 for a three-bedroom (or more) apartment.
