craigslist rental sample

The price to rent ratio remains elevated in Calgary and Edmonton. I suspect this is due to an irrational negative attitude toward renting in Alberta and very low interest rates. However, I do think that some part of the price difference between Alberta and the US is a real difference between the cost to rent (and build). Its simply more expensive to rent in Calgary and Edmonton than Phoenix and because of this prices should be comparatively higher.

Consider this selection of craigslist rental ads for $1250.
