Urbanation's quarterly reports and online historical database are viewed as an essential source of information on the GTA and Hamilton-Grimsby rental market for condominiums and purpose-built rental projects.
Urbanation records transactional lease activity within every condominium project, which is matched with our proprietary unit specification database to generate precise rent per sf calculations. Additionally, every purpose-built rental project developed since 2005 is surveyed for market rents and vacancies through our direct relationships with rental management companies, and our continuous monitoring of information on units becoming available for rent. Our rental database tracks every new rental project under construction and proposed for development, and reports on lease-up rates upon occupancy. We regularly conduct in-person site visits and provide full profiles for every new rental project surveyed.
The UrbanRental subscription allows users to analyze important trends using time series data on key demand and supply variables, such as lease volumes, building turnover rates, vacancy rates, leases-to-listings ratios, average days on market, months of supply, completions and construction inventory levels, average rents and rents per sf - with summaries at the GTA, municipal, submarket and project level. The online tool breaks down market data by building type and location, unit layout and size, with additional information on parking and locker costs, utilities, building amenities and suite features.
