Housing in Vancouver ain’t cheap – especially rentals. In fact, renters in Metro Vancouver are spending more than half of their monthly income on rent, according to a recent report. And that’s not surprising given the average rent for a one-bedroom is now $$2,317 in Vancouver, which is up $61 from last month. Yikes. If you are looking for something below-average price, here are some of the cheapest available apartments in Vancouver right now, courtesy of rentals.ca.
2725 Osoyoos Crescent: $1,575 per month
Located in a quiet neighbourhood just minutes from Main Street, this single-bedroom suite is the perfect spot for someone who likes to keep things cozy at home and enjoys close access to great food, shopping, and other amenities. The pet-friendly spot boasts a fully furnished living space and kitchen, ensuite laundry, a queen-size bed (and a sofa bed), and wired/wireless Internet.
3096 East Georgia Street: $1,575
This one-bedroom basement suite is situated in the Hastings Sunrise area, with close access to the R5 transit line to downtown & SFU. While this pick might not be the shiniest or amenity-heavy, it would surely suit a student or young professional looking for a fully-equipped kitchen, ensuite laundry, and a flexible lease. Oh, and utilities are covered in the rent as well.
2741 West 14th Avenue: $1,950 per month
Another great furnished option, this one-bedroom one-bath house in Kits is within walking distance to Carnarvon Elementary, Kitsilano Secondary, and a number of parks and other family-friendly amenities. The house includes laundry machines in the basement and some kitchenware.

2280 Vine Street: $1,980 per month
This spot boasts hardwood flooring, close beach access, and a balcony – all within the heart of Kitsilano. The available suite happens to be a south-facing, recently renovated first-floor unit. All 18 suites have been upgraded with new kitchens, bathrooms, floors, and balconies. The laundry is coin-operated.
180 East Second Avenue: $2,000 per month
Last up on this list is Second + Main, a brand-new building in one of Vancouver’s fastest-growing communities. Strolls around False Creek will no longer be just a once-in-awhile thing with this spot. The units come with custom-designed kitchens, ensuite laundry, and air conditioning – a big win come summertime. The building also boasts a communal bbq area, rooftop terrace and garden, fitness room, and even a “party room.”
And that’s a wrap on affordable rentals for this month, folks. Happy apartment hunting.
