    Rentals.ca

    Rentals is our top choice for finding your next apartment, house, or condo rental. They offer an easy to use search function that allows you to filter through price, number of bedrooms, and property type, along with an easy to use map if you know the area you’d like to live in. Along with its detailed listings of apartments throughout the city, Rentals makes it easy to filter out properties that don’t meet your needs. You can even connect with potential landlords directly with a useful “Contact” button on each listing.

    Zumper

    For a more personalized approach to the rental process, Zumper is the way to go. This website provides an online profile for each renter, allowing them to customize their search based on their own preferences. Plus, the site’s agents help renters find the perfect place by offering expert advice and assistance.

    RentersPages

    RentersPages is an excellent choice for those who prefer to browse through listings in their own time. This website collects rental listings from all over the city and provides detailed descriptions of each apartment.

    PadMapper

    PadMapper is another popular Toronto rental website. It offers a wide range of listings, from condos to lofts, and makes it easy to search for what you’re looking for. The site also includes helpful maps and reviews of the rental properties, rental homes and houses for rent so you can get an idea of what living there would be like.

    Kijiji

    Last but not least is Kijiji. This website is great for finding apartments for rent in Toronto with its huge selection of listings. It also has a user-friendly search function, so you can find what you’re looking for quickly and easily. Kijiji also has a good chance of having listings that aren’t on other websites, since many of the listings will be privately rented. Of course, renting directly from the owner rather than going through an agency or property management company can come with certain risks, such as slow response times, no in-building management, and

    Bonus: Walk Score

    While it’s not strictly a rental website, using Walk Score in conjunction with any of these rental guides is a good way to make sure your search for Toronto real estate comes with no surprises, giving you an idea of the neighbourhood you’ll be moving into before you get there. This is especially helpful for those who are moving to Toronto from another country or city. You don’t want to get to your new apartment only to find that the neighbourhood looks nothing like it did in the pictures, or is a distance away from any amenities.

    No matter which rental website you choose to use, it’s important to make sure you have the proper insurance in place. Renter’s Insurance can save you from having to pay out of pocket in the event of a fire, theft or water damage.APOLLO Insurance makes it effortless with a simplified process that will have your policy emailed directly to you within 15 minutes.
