Forest Glen
Moving to Forest Glen

If you are looking for apartment rentals in Forest Glen, you're in luck. For a small town there is a substantial amount of rental housing, and most of it is in the form of apartments. Almost 40 percent of the properties in the area are apartment buildings. Only around 10 percent of apartments are occupied by their owners, so buying an apartment will require more research and searching beforehand if you want to find a place.

The market for houses is the complete opposite. Over 80 percent of houses in Forest Glen, both detached and terraced, are lived in by their owners. This means the number of townhouses for rent is very small, with less than 20 percent occupied by renters. It's best to start shopping around early if you would like to find a larger rental property. Those hoping to buy a house should be aware that real estate prices in Forest Glen are a little higher than the state average, although not by much. If you have time to look, you will find the right deal.
