Rental prices reached all-time highs, most notably seen with condos and new-construction luxury multi-family properties offering the “convenience lifestyle.” Looking back at the rental market headlines of 2014, we can attribute the success of Denver’s pricey rentals to the growing and healthy economy, continued shortage of rental housing and the strong desire for more people to relocate downtown.
