Free rent offered as move-in incentive at these Montreal properties

Mar 17 2021, 1:30 pm

Montreal landlords and property managers have increasingly offered rental incentives as move-in motivation, some even including free rent (and some offering skydiving?).

Because of the pandemic, supply has increased and demand has decreased when it comes to rental properties across the city.

With a lack of jobs and tourism, a decreased need for students to rent out space, and people moving back in with family,Ā has highlighted five properties in and around Montreal offering free rent.

The Ottawa-based rental agency says incentives could continue to be offered through 2022, depending on how quickly COVID-19 vaccines are distributed and how quickly rental demand can catch up to supply.

If you’re in the market for a new spot, here are some Montreal rental units offering incentives, according to

450 rue Sherbrooke Est, $915 – $1,985
