My colleague, Jennifer, has four homes near in Rexdale near Humber College’s north campus and rents the properties to students between $500-600 a month per room; there are four to five people in each house. The residences are also in a low-income neighbourhood so she’s getting a good return and has little to no trouble finding tenants. I’m thinking of following in her footsteps but I’ve also heard about horror stories when renting to studies. They’re always broke, get drunk and break things, get involved with drugs. Is it wise to invest in student housing?
