Its an interesting phenomenon really, considering the fact that interest rates are still at historical lows.  Despite this fact there are still many who can't qualify for a mortgage or simply don't want one.  And once again, it proves that its a golden time to own a rental property in Denver CO!  The percentage of renters is higher than ever.    It could be a paradigm shift.  As of 2014, 37.8 percent leased rather than owned, and that is a large number.  It would suggest that 38% of the housing in Denver should be rental housing to support this.
