Renting à la Toronto
You need some serious insider information to properly search for your ideal rental space in any given city.
Not only is it important to know how to differentiate a good neighbourhood from the ones you really want
to avoid, but it’s good to know what a certain area can offer you as a resident. If you’re completely new to
the world of Toronto rentals, then you might not know exactly how to look for these ideal locations.
Don’t worry, we’re here to help! Let us give you the basics for finding your dream Toronto rental, whether
it’s a trendy open loft or a luxurious two bedroom suite.
If you’re transitioning from Vancouver to Toronto you may be in a bit of a surprise when you peruse the
realty listings. Whereas Vancouverites tend to focus on building name as a huge identifier, in Toronto most
residents don’t even know that their buildings have a name. So what is the biggest identifier among the
endless lists of Toronto apartments and condos? The answer is the closest main intersection. By locating the
closest major intersection Torontonians can easily imagine the local neighbourhood with its pros and cons.
So first step’s first, check out the many Toronto districts and find out which ones suit your needs. You can
find our descriptive list of Toronto neighbourhoods by clicking here. Do you prefer the posh restaurants and
haute couture experience of Yorkville or are you more into the trendy vegetarian eateries and parks of Queen
Once you’ve locked down your top neighbourhoods, see which major intersections are found in and around
these districts. In other words, set the geographical limits to your dream neighbourhood. Would you like to
live downtown on King Street? Well then make sure you don’t look for anything further East than
King/Parliament and no further west than King/Dufferin.
At Rent It Furnished we like to cover all our bases to give you a more pleasant renting experience. Our
specialized filters allow you to search for your perfect rental by allowing you to personalize your requirements.
You can narrow down your search by choosing a certain neighbourhood or by specifying if you’re looking for
a studio, a large 3 bedroom suite or anything in between. There are many details you need to know about a
Toronto rental space: Are their major highways nearby, how far is the nearest TTC bus or subway stop, is there
a grocery store within walking distance, etc. Our detailed descriptions will let you know all of these crucial
details (including the closest major intersection!) and more. We even have individual building and
neighbourhood profiles so that you can get a better taste of the lifestyle you could live at a certain location.
