New Multifamily Projects Underway in Colorado
We’re taking a break from a focus on property management software, with a closer look at growth markets in multifamily developments and multifamily investment opportunities in Denver, Fort Collins, Aurora, Colorado Springs, and Boulder, Colorado.
The multifamily real estate market in Colorado is garnering more attention in 2019. The economy looks good and the demand for multifamily rental housing is strong although developers are offering concessions to get leases signed.
Economic and Demographic Trends Favoring Colorado
Migration of highly educated workers to Denver is encouraging this new development of rental apartments. Demand in Colorado, like most other states, will likely never keep pace with supply because of cost, and political and regulatory restrictions.
The lower cost of development compared to California and the Colorado lifestyle makes this region a big draw for developers, business people, and migrant millennials. And they’re building for them.
Income property has outperformed other investment sectors, and given the height the stock markets have already achieved, the multifamily rental property sector in Colorado is worth a closer look.
Of course, if you’re going to buy some blocks of units or whole buildings, you’ll want to know what to look for and which cities have the best potential going forward with the new US economy. New business opportunities for Colorado property management companies are outstanding.
