Sounds like your price is too high...or your place just is not that desirable for the asking price.
As a landlord that has dealt with a recession, even during a recession, there will be interest in a place if it's desirable and the price is right. While we had to lower our rent price from 1500 to 1300 in a year, we got a tenant pretty quickly after we lowered our rent ask, interest shot up pretty quickly. 2 years prior, we could have had rented it for 1700-1800 easily. the vacant spots in Calgary are the stubborn ones reluctant to adapt to the market.
Remember 1.1% vacancy is still vacancy. Just because your place is for rent in a hot market, does not mean people want it at your asking just because it's available.
Lower your rent by 100, and I can bet you it will be rented almost immediately.
