apartment for rent toronto

Is this the worst Toronto apartment rental ad ever?

An apartment for rent posted to Kijiji earlier this month is getting attention for all the wrong reasons. A thread on Reddit has broken out where the mood suggests the apartment looks more like a crime scene or former meth lab than somewhere one would actually want to live.

It's possible that the listing itself is just a prank but if taken at face value it represents a sad state of affairs for the rental market in Koreatown.

While the description is enticing (5 bedrooms, 2 washrooms, separate entrances, washer and dryer, dishwasher, central air conditioning, extra storage), the Bloor and Manning apartment has photos that show the interior in a state of disrepair. The monthly rent comes in at $3,100.

"Renting to students is a good racket" writes one commenter on Reddit. Another responds "At least it is accurate. I hate searching for apartments only to find the pics are of one staged unit, and the real unit looks more like this."
