In the midst of a global pandemic that’s been so challenging for rental property providers and residents alike, it’s been difficult to focus on anything else for those of us in the rental housing space.
The sheer scale and scope of the impact of COVID-19 on the rental housing sector has made it easy to forget that the pandemic will pass. But it will. And the problems and issues that faced rental property owners and those seeking quality rental housing prior to COVID-19 will remain, further exacerbated by recent events.
Rental housing is in hot demand not just in Ontario; it’s a trend that’s growing worldwide. In the post-pandemic world, when many people may be struggling to get back on their feet financially and some may have even sold homes to stay afloat, it’s likely that demand for such housing will probably increase.
