Just wanted to let you all know our recent experience in the rental market. We're moving in early summer. We just negotiated 7% off the asking rent and got the landlord to agree to NO lease. It's month-to-month for us on a 3-bed house near a recreation centre in the central CRD. We'll be within 15 minutes of downtown and 15 minutes of the highway out of town.
Yep, the market she's a changing.
Oh, and in case you're wondering how we got the discount with no lease: we asked for it, right after the landlord complained about their current noisy tenants wrecking their recent house buying experience, with a reminder that we're married professionals with decent income and quiet lifestyle.
