Montreal boroughs ranked according to multiplex appreciation rates over the past 4 quarters.

0 2,669

Multiplexes are buildings that have been divided into two (duplex), three (triplex) or more separate units. They are typically purchased as rental investments.

We’ve ranked Montreal’s boroughs according to appreciation rates, to determine the safest areas for a duplex, triplex or multiplex purchase in 2018. Along with appreciation rates, “average selling time” is a good indicator of how hot a market it – a high appreciation rate combined with a low selling time points to the high demand / low supply conditions of a seller’s market.

All figures in this article are pulled from the latest Centris statistics over the last four quarters of 2017.
