The struggle is real.
In Toronto’s housing market, finding the right apartment can be extraordinarily difficult. There are affordability issues as incomes haven’t increased with housing prices. With affordability concerns comes increased difficulty to find a place that’s transit accessible, near grocery stores, or near other community amenities.
These stories, and the accompanying issues, are a big part of the housing market, but they largely go untold in favour of checking out the latest multi-million dollar home purchase. (If you have millions of dollars to spend on real estate, please do not get in touch with us.)
We’d like to follow various people on their quest to find an apartment that works for them for a series that we will launch in the coming weeks. It involves keeping Torontoist journalist Sarah Niedoba updated via email, some Torontoist photography, and sharing your experience and thoughts as you go through it.
If you’re interested in sharing your apartment hunt, let us know. Send an email to editors [at] torontoist.com with the subject “APARTMENT HUNT” and describe your situation as well as what you’re looking for. We’ll be in touch, and happy hunting.
