Condominiums are being rented for from40percent to 50percent more than regular rental apartments, according to Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp from a recent report.  Condominium rentals normally provide more amenties and features than purpose-built rentals.  The rental apartment  vacancy rate in urban BC increased to 2.8percent October 2009 compared to 1percent in October 2008.  The higher vancancy rate is a combination of factors, including investor owned condo's being added to the rental market.  A good reason to look at the option of purchasing a condo in Tsawwassen or Ladner especially with lower interest rates being available.  in Delta the vacancy rate  is up 3.8percent as compared to vancouver which is 2.1percent and Richmond 2.7percent.
