Good question

Posted on Tue, May 29, 2012 at 9:56 AM

I just looked at a rental on Quinpool Road. This was a one bedroom for $975! Not only did it have a horrible bathroom, but a horrible kitchen with the only counter being about 5 feet which included a sink. It had no cupboard space and was pretty small for a one bedroom. It did have a nice deck and is in a nice area obviously. Quinpool is pretty much the nicest area in Halifax, and that being said I do understand that you pay for the area you are going to live in. The problem is, for a place like this in a normal area, the cost would be around $550 or $600. So we are paying prices that people in Toronto would pay to rent a crappy apartment. This is not Toronto, and we have higher taxes, higher income taxes, higher food prices and lower wages. Why would anyone stay in this city? —Seriously?
