Toronto's rental market is a tough place right now. While real estate prices might be cooling down, monthly rent for apartments and condos is still sky high. Paying less than $1,000 a month is a major challenge these days.
Splitting a two bedroom apartment is one way to look for savings, though even this tried and true method isn't always guaranteed. That's why this apartment at 368 Olser St. looks rather attractive at just under $2,000 a month.
It's certainly not the lap of luxury, but a newly renovated above ground space with two bedrooms, in-suite laundry, and good transit access is tough to find at this price point. You'll need to get some stuff on the walls to make it feel homey, but there's certainly potential here.
The listing oversells its proximity to new spots in the Junction Triangle, but the location does have lots to like given that it's close to both the Junction, the north side of the Junction Triangle, and Corso Italia.
- Address: 368 Osler St.

I like this as a roommate scenario where one person pays a bit extra for the nicer bedroom, but it would of course also work for a couple looking for some extra space beyond a one bedroom.
Move On If
You hate riding the streetcar. While there are tons of amenities within walking distance of this place, you can bet that you'll be riding the 512 streetcar for longer trips.
