It has become unbelievably impossible to find housing in and around HRM. Let me rephrase that...it's becoming impossible to find reasonably priced housing that isn't catered to students.
I'm astounded at the expectations of landlords these days, you honestly want $1,700 for a townhouse that doesn't even have a yard? You cant slap on a little crown moulding and call it Versailles, Halifax. Smarten up. Working full-time and affording to live anywhere these days seems to be impossible, especially when you have animals! Charging western Canada prices with a shit economy, and shittier minimum wage is ridiculous. No wonder people keep leaving this province, they have nowhere to live! —Homeless in Halifax
