Are you looking to find a new place in Regina?
If so, it’s worth taking a couple minutes to consider what the city currently has to offer.
As you have probably heard, Regina is a renter’s paradise at the moment. I’ll talk about this a bit more in some of the below sections, but overall, vacancies are up.
At the same time, this hasn’t diminished the development of new properties.
As with anything, there are many factors that contribute to the overall price to rent a place in Regina. This article will be a quick update of what is available today.
If you much prefer an in depth comprehensive break down of the neighbourhoods, prices and quality of houses and apartments to rent then you should check out Ultimate Guide To Renting in Regina.
If you think you already know what kind of rental in Regina you can afford, you might be surprised to find how far your money will go in the current market.
Houses for Rent in Regina
If you’re looking for a house, there are plenty on the market in Regina right now. Best of all, they’re spread out all over the city and include all kinds of different designs, so you have plenty of choices.
In the central zone of Regina, you’ll find high-rise condominiums and houses. Young professionals tend to favor these.
Along the outskirts of the downtown central zone are mostly mansion-style houses. However, the demand for Regina rentals has changed the real estate landscape here a lot. More and more, development is focused on single-family houses and apartments.
That doesn’t mean you have to choose between mansions and small houses, though. A lot of the homes for rent in this part of Regina come with large garages, recreational rooms, and other functional spaces that can be converted into bars or other fun features.
If you head to the southern part of Regina, you’ll find that the majority of rentals here are fully-detached houses. These would probably be a good fit for you if you’re single.
On the other hand, if you have a bit more room in your budget, houses along the northern edge of the city are much bigger and have 4+ bedrooms.
Considering the average monthly rent for houses in Regina is just $1,068.12, you have a lot of really great opportunities here. There are excellent fits for just about any lifestyle or living arrangement and you can still enjoy the fun and convenience of city life.
Apartments for Rent in Regina
Despite the fact that apartment rentals in Regina have risen over the past few years, we’ve actually seen slightly higher vacancy rates here – moving from around 3% to 5%.
For the most part, this is because home rentals in Regina have become much more affordable. At the same time, more apartments have been built. So it’s definitely a great time to be a renter looking for apartments in Regina. You have a lot of very affordable options on the table.
That said, you’ll still see rental prices for apartments vary across the city. The average price for a one-bedroom apartment sits around $900/month. For apartments with 3+ bedrooms, you’ll pay closer to $1,300.
Just like with the houses for rent in northern Regina, if you plan to look for an apartment in this part of the city, expect to pay a bit more for it.
Townhouses for Rent in Regina
Once again, you have plenty of options if you’re interested in renting a townhouse in Regina. Obviously, you’ll pay more in rent for the extra story, but I’m confident that you’ll find that the added space is definitely worth it.
Rent for townhouses in Regina can vary a lot. It all depends on how big they are and what part of town they’re in.
For a one-bed townhouse, you’re looking at an average price of about $1,067/month.
If you need two bedrooms, townhouses for rent in Regina tend to run closer to $1,132, but I’ve seen prices lower than $1,000 for them, too. On the high end, you can expect to pay closer to $1,300.
After that, 3-bedroom townhouses here will begin around $1,100 and can go over $1,400. I’d say the average is around $1,250. For an additional bedroom, the average rental price jumps to $1,574/month.
Although they’re definitely a bit more expensive than apartments, a lot of renters think townhouses in Regina are completely worth it – especially if you spend a lot of time in the busier parts of the city. It’s nice to return home and have plenty of space to yourself.
Condos for Rent in Regina
Over the past 10 years, more and more high-rise condos have been built here. They’re a great choice if you want that extra space I just talked about but still value a certain communal atmosphere where you can meet new people and socialize with your neighbors.
In the northeastern neighborhoods, condos go for around $1,350. If you want to rent one in a popular area like Harbor Landing, the price is going to be closer to $2,500.

Suites for Rent in Regina
Suites are your best bet for a budget rental in Regina. Whether you’re visiting the capital for a few months for work or just want to cut your rental costs, they’re a great way to save money without sacrificing comfort.
Although you can pay up to $2,000 a month for suites in the more affluent parts of Regina, most renters only pay between $500-$700, which is a great deal.
Understandably, size plays a big part in the price you should expect to pay. For something like a 2-bed suite, you’ll look at an average monthly rent of $995.
Explore Your Options in Person
I hope you found the above breakdown of Regina rentals helpful. As you just saw, renters have a lot of properties to choose from at the moment.
Of course, even though it’s a renter’s market, you should take steps to explore it in person ASAP, so you don’t miss out on the best option for your unique requirements.
