Monthly Rents Keep Climbing

May 27, 2014

Thousands of apartment renters across the Denver area are getting the news that their next rent check will cost a little more.

The increasing supply of new apartments in metro Denver isn’t yet affecting low vacancies and increasing rents.

Average monthly rents climbed for the third consecutive quarter to $1,074 across metro Denver. Every county in metro Denver (Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder/Broomfield, Denver, Douglas and Jefferson) saw its average rent climb within the last month.

If you’re tired of rent increases at your current location or want to move but will experience a spike in rent, consider the benefits of buying a home instead. You may be able to secure a great rate and end up paying the equivalent or less in monthly payments as you build equity in a home. Renting can be a more affordable option for the short term, but renters still have to face rising rental costs year after year.
