The major employers here in Penticton are tourism and Retail. Wages are very low. Buying a home is out of the question for most people. It's very difficult to find affordable rental accomodation. Rent usually takes from around 40 to 50 percent of a person's income. Your figure is was too low. Unemployment is high. If you have to work for a living, don't come here unless you have a guaranteed job.

I feel anyone renting out a place should take a long hard look at, first off, would THEY live in the rental? Is it really worth the money they are asking? Some places are ridiculously small, no counter space or storage, weirdly laid out that there's no room once the furniture is in, yet they are asking 1300 a month..NOT including utilities which could be another $150.00 on top of that!!
