Denver Metro Single Family Home Rental Rates Continue To Rise

Denver Property Management, Industry News

Real Property Management Colorado, part of the nation’s leading property management franchise organization, and RentRange, the nation’s leading provider of Rental Market Intelligence™, released their quarterly “Rental Statistics Report,” which shows Denver Metro area single family home rental rates in Q1 continuing to rise while statewide rent rates remained flat and nationwide rent rates declined year-over-year.

During the first quarter of 2019, the companies found that the average monthly rent for single-family homes in the Denver area was $2,106, representing a 5.61% year-over-year increase from Q1 of 2018. Across the state, average monthly rent remained flat at $1,684 versus $1,679 a year ago and $1,646 last quarter. And, nationally, single family home rental rates were $1,414 which is down slightly from a $1,471 a year ago and $1,443 last quarter. This rental market data is limited to three-bedroom single-family homes.

“With rental rates across the Denver Metro area continuing to rise, landlords are now embarking upon six plus years of continuous rent increases” said Greg Bacheller, Co-Owner of Real Property Management Colorado.  “The market continues to smile favorably on landlords while posing on-going affordability and inventory challenges for renters.  Demand continues to outstrip supply up and down the Front Range and with that, rents continue to climb.”

Broomfield County $2,121

Douglas County $2,108

Boulder County $1,851

Jefferson County $1,834

Weld County $1,777

Arapahoe County $1,715

Larimer County $1,632

5-bedroom $2,397

4-bedroom $2,173

The report also examined vacancy rates, the percentage of homes considered unoccupied, through the end of the first quarter. The vacancy rate in the Denver Metro area was 3.09%, which is up slightly from 2.92% last year. Vacancy rates statewide were relatively flat at 2.44% versus 2.41% a year ago.  National vacancy rates were also flat at 5.61%.
