Seems like there's no affordable (<$1000) studio rental units in the GTA
Problem is, I work in the Yonge/York Mills area and I can't seem to find any studio apartments or house-share rooms with a private kitchen & bathroom for anything less than $1100. I also need a parking space for my car. All the rental units that are reasonably close to my workplace and fit this criteria are going for over this price.
Granted, I've found two studio listings for ~$875 in the area, but one of them has a history of bed bugs and the other one is run by a terrible (according to Yelp) property management firm, so I'm not going to touch them.
So just wondering, for all those making under ~$50k, how can you afford to live alone? (And if you know of any affordable rental units in North York, do tell.)
EDIT: Just want to mention I cannot / do not want to live with roommates that would entail sharing the kitchen & bathroom.
