Eager for a rental, a Torontonian is selling himself as the 'Best Tenant Ever'© Google Despite Toronto's decades-long condo building boom, city statistics show that the vacancy rate has fallen.

AriZilnik spent weeks fruitlessly searching for a place to rent in Toronto before trying something new: an online campaign to convince prospective landlords that he's the "best tenant ever."

The experience, Zilnik says, shows just how hard it is to find a good rental in this city.

"Instead of me going out and seeking a bunch of landlords and hunting on Craigslist, Kijiji, whatever the case may be, I thought that using the skills that I have and trying to think outside the box, people could maybe come to me," Zilnik, 30, told Reshmi Nair on Metro Morning.

Rental building owners file petition to quash New Westminster rental-only zones

Rental building owners file petition to quash New Westminster rental-only zones In the petition, six rental owners claim the city received plenty of requests to stall the decision but that those requests went unanswered. The Urban Development Institute also proposed to work with the city to come up with a solution, but that was rejected. New Westminster Mayor Jonathan Cote said he anticipated challenges to the new bylaw. "The city did move very quickly, and it did so to prevent a very quick mass eviction of those buildings," the mayor said.

Torontonian : I wish all those fucking leeches would separate from Canada so that I wouldn't have to pay for all their goddamned cigarettes and health care any more. Often mistaken for an actual Torontonian , these individuals take offense to the label. They are often courteous, attractive, smart

Landlords have the right to sell their property whenever they want, but that doesn't mean that they can just kick out their renters immediately. Tenants have rights, too! Here's what you should know and how to handle things when a landlord is selling your home.

It took him a few hours to get his website, Besttenantever.com, up and running. It not only includes a description of him, but his Equifax credit score (821, or excellent) and references from two former landlords.

And also some other things, "like having a great beard and, you know, being pretty quiet," he says.

Zilnik's tactics, which also include putting up posters around neighbourhoods and buildings he likes, are understandable to many searching for a place to live in Toronto.

According to the Canada Mortgage Housing Corp., extremely low vacancy rates are a problem across the country, but they're even worse here. Ontario reported a historic low vacancy rate of 1.8 per cent in 2018, with Toronto coming in even lower at 1.1 per cent.

City of Toronto data shows the rental market hasn't been this tight since 2001, when the vacancy rate dropped to 0.6 per cent.

Federal fund for rental units won't fix housing crisis, advocates say

Federal fund for rental units won't fix housing crisis, advocates say The $10 billion earmarked in Tuesday's federal budget to continue a program aimed at spurring construction of new rental units won't go far enough to fix Ottawa's affordable housing crisis, advocates say. The cash will be doled out over the next nine years, enabling the construction of about 42,000 units across Canada as part of the federal government's rental construction financing initiative. Coun. Catherine McKenney, Ottawa's housing and homelessness liaison, said that while the city does need more rental units, it's only a small part of a much larger problem.

When selling rental property, it’s best to be straightforward and open with your tenant . A seller-finance agreement. You, as the property owner, serve as the lender, instead of a bank. The tenant agrees to make payments to you over a period of a few years, often with one balloon payment.

Showing a rental property occupied by a tenant is generally a difficult matter. Even if you, as the listing broker, define in the MLS posting the specific limitations on access to the property, that simply does not guarantee that a selling broker will comply with those specified limitations.

Amid the search, settling for less

Zilnik, who previously lived in New York City, is now getting used to the new reality of searching for a rental in Toronto. Before, he said, he expected to be able to land a place that satisfied at least two of his top three priorities, which are: price, neighbourhood and unit size.

"Now it's really turning into pick one," he says.

"You might find saying in your budget or you're willing to sacrifice everything."

Zilnik said despite the tough rental conditions, he has no doubt he'll be able to find a great place.

For now, he's living with his parents in Richmond Hill. So far he says his campaign has attracted two potential landlords.

Canadian Rental Rates Rise At Fastest Pace In 30 Years.
If you've been paying the bills in your household, you've probably noticed that some things have fallen in price (gas), and some things have been largely stable (shoes and clothing, for instance). But if you've been shopping around for an apartment to rent, you've probably experienced sticker shock. The cost of renting an apartment in Canada shot up 0.9 per cent in a single month in January, according to Statistics Canada, the fastest one-month leap in since August, 1989. © Provided by Oath Inc.And even though the hike took place in the first month that StatCan is using a new method to estimate rental costs, the agency insists it's not a statistical distortion.
