Anyone have any thoughts on Montreal?

I have a friend who rents out an apartment long term on the south shore through AirBnB. It works out to about the same price as he would get from renting out long term through ads but the process is actually easier for him with the platform than posting ads and answering phone calls.

I have a basement apartment that my friend rents out and when he goes on trips he rents it out. If he leaves I would consider AirBnB even if long term because it would save me a lot of trouble.

I just love the city, and I'd like to buy a property there.

It's not the greatest market for buying right now, which has led to an increase in the number of renters and extremely low vacancy rates...
