Rental of the week: 9 Givins Street

With Toronto's rental market in full blown Halloween spook mode, it's hard to know what you can get for certain benchmark numbers. What kind of apartment $3,500 got you just a year ago is significantly different than today.

9 givins street torontoPerhaps that's why this semi-detached rental at 9 Givins St. caught my eye. It seems like a good space for the price in today's market. Sure, $3,500 is a lot to pay in rent, but here it gets you a full house with three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

9 givins street torontoIt's also possible to rent the house in a furnished state with utilities included for $4,500, but that's considerably less enticing for anyone who lives in the city and isn't an ex-pat worker or looking for a short term rental.

9 givins street torontoThe interior here is tastefully designed, and the furnished basement area is a major boon space-wise. If there's a major drawback, a lack of parking could be cited, but it might be possible to secure an on-street permit.

9 givins street torontoNot everyone needs three bedrooms, but those who are in the market for a spacious rental will likely find this one alluring.
