I agree that looking at a generic cost/sf, especially for a rental is rather meaningless. You need to look at comparable units and even with that, there can be many other factors at play, particularly in a soft market like we have now and particularly in the Winter. Cost/sf does not take into account seasonal factors among others.

I personally think its always hard to clarify the sq/ft of a certain area because there is so many different aspects at play. Its tough to compare a newer 2bed condo, to a old vintage 3 bed rental. I think if you are looking for a good idea of rent per sq/ft you have to look at similar places in one area.

I sampled about 74 rented properties in the last 3 months and it look like 1.25/sq ft. If you want the spread sheet, I would be glad to email it to you please send an email to
