We knew the rental market in Victoria was bad, but this one takes the cake.
An apartment in a building on Estevan Terrace was recently listed as vacant, and we took a look at some of the details.
The building in question is located right across from Willows Beach and boasts spectacular ocean views. The apartment itself has a patio from which to enjoy these views.
It’s also got two bedrooms, a den, in-suite laundry, and just one full sized bathroom, and costs a whopping $4,750/month!
Just to be clear, this price does not include parking or utilities, and the building does not allow pets.
Let’s take a look at what you can get for the same price in other cities
