Colorado Springs And Denver See Large Rent Increases

· Jan. 8, 2016, 11:58 pm
Denver and Colorado Springs had some of the biggest increases in apartment rents in the country, according to the market research firm Reis. 
Denver renters are paying about 7 percent more for apartments over the last 12 months. Though it may be comfort to low income renters, the city is still a bargain compared to other areas. It ranked 28th in the country for average rents.
But Colorado Springs has seen a wild swing in rent increases. It ranked 68th in the country in 2014. Last year it was in the top 10.
The cities were the only non-coastal regions ranking in the top 10 for apartment rent growth.  Only a few metro areas had stronger rent growth, places like San Francisco, Seattle and Portland.
