Rentfaster is one of the better websites to search for average rent rates in Calgary. You can search by home style and communities to really narrow in on the type of property you are thinking about. You can also search by price to see what properties demand the highest rents and what properties collect the least amount of income.
Then you can search properties on MLS® by the numbers as well.
