If anyone rents a loft/condo in downtown Toronto, I'm curious as to how much it costs each month for living expenses only (do not include food). So rent/heat/gas/electricity/hydro/cable/internet and anything else. E.g. if you rent for $1800 a month, how much are all the other bills?

I've spoke with a \real estate agents and they said if I rent a condo/loft, my heat/electricity/gas will be covered as part of my rent. Is this correct?

Thanks in advance,

vic

I would assume that the utilities will be included in the rent. In my old condo they were part of my maintenance fees. Cable is at least $50-70, internet is $50. Subway is $20 for 7 tokens or $120/month for a pass. And supermarket food downtown tends to be the pricier chains like Longos/Loblaws.

Thanks for the info. Do you think rent prices can be negotiated?

It all depends on supply and demand, if you're after a 'hot' place you may be competing. In the past, I've had to pay more than the asking price to get a place I wanted in TO.
