About Renting in Vancouver
Vancouver is a diverse, multi-cultural urban city, surrounded by the natural beauty of the mountains. Over half of Vancouver households (52%) rent. The city usually has the lowest vacancy rate in the region, less than 1% for the last four years. In 2009, the vacancy rate was at 1.2%. (Source: City of Vancouver, Housing Policy, Feb 9, 2011). However, Rent Starlight has numerous multi-family options for renters.
A popular choice for renters is Vancouver’s West End. This young, hip area is bordered by downtown Vancouver, the financial district, Stanley Park and English Bay. The West End is a mix of Canadians and new immigrants, giving the area a wonderful diversity. Like other downtown neighbourhoods, the West End is very densely populated. There are boutiques, restaurants all along the very popular Robson Street. There are plenty of parks, health facilities and schools in this vibrant, regentrified neighbourhood.
Just to the east of downtown, neighbourhoods like Grandview-Woodland, Hastings-Sunrise and Strathcona are attracting renters for the short commute to downtown and its lively blend of commercial, industrial, single-family and multi-family residential.
Living in Vancouver
Vancouver is Canada’s third largest city, the winters are mild, the summers are warm and it is consistently ranked as one of Canada’s most livable cities. The city is well-known for its environmental sustainability, accessibility and inclusivity. The modern architecture of the thriving downtown core, with the spectacular backdrop of English Bay and the Rocky Mountains lend Vancouver a certain wow-factor.
Densely populated –the 4th most densely populated city in North American– high-rise residential and mixed-use commercial and residential development contribute to urban Vancouver’s skyline. It is a city of neighbourhoods, each with its own ethnicity. Chinatown, Little Italy, Punjabi Market and Greektown are just some of the culturally rich areas, which reflect Vancouver’s international flair. 52% of residents do not speak English as their first language.
Celebrated for its arts community, Vancouver has an exciting mix of theatres, musical venues, art galleries, museums and cultural centres. With its nightclubs, dance club, restaurants and outstanding shopping, the city offers countless entertainment and leisure options. Locals and tourists can be found in the popular shopping and entertainment areas of Gastown, Yaletown and the Entertainment District.
The commercial hub of the west coast, Vancouver has one of Canada’s most prosperous economies. Its history is steeped in its position as a port city and headquarters of natural resource companies in forestry and mining. But today, Vancouver’s economy is also driven by the film industry, biotech, software development and telecommunications.
Vancouverites benefit from an excellent transportation system, Translink. This highly developed network includes buses, ferries and SkyTrain, a light rapid transit system that runs every few minutes and intersects the city.
In addition to extensive elementary, middle and high schools, Vancouver has two major universities: The University of British Columbia (UBC) and Simon Fraser University.
