Rent is getting OUT OF CONTROL in Denver. It's insane. But according to Fox 31:
For at least the last year and a half, the price of rent for an apartment in Denver has been climbing at an astronomical rate.
But brand new data shows there might be hope on the horizon.
According to data from RentCafe, the average cost of an 842 square foot apartment in Denver is hovering just below $1,900 a month.
The fact is, rent prices have been climbing like crazy throughout the pandemic. But according to analysts over at RentCafe and Yardi Matrix, a massive number of new apartments are coming on board in the Mile High City in the coming months that will help stabilize rent prices.
Their data shows in the Denver metro area alone, towards the end of Quarter 2, beginning of Quarter 3, somewhere around 10,000 new units will be coming on board.
“So that’s going to begin to diminish the rates — because of the competitive market rates that are going on — so with more new supply you’ll have more of a competitive advantage from a renter’s perspective, where rents will begin to diminish,” explained Doug Ressler, Manager of Business Intelligence with Yardi Matrix.
How much less are we talking about here? Analysts at Yardi Matrix have those numbers but can’t divulge them just yet because they’re just proprietary data right now.
But according to Ressler, he says prices could be significantly less. He also said we could see lower rent prices by this May or June.
If this happens, that would be AMAZING!
