Short Term Rentals Denver
The city of Denver, Colorado is a young vibrant place to live and work. It has almost doubled in size in the last ten years, going from one million people in 2000, to just over two million people in 2010. There must be something here to pull that many people.
Many of those newcomers aren't from around here. In fact, many of them aren't from the US at all. That means we have a cosmopolitan city with a diversity of culture and tradition. The upside of that is that we socialize with people from all cultures, and there is always a festival or something going on to celebrate them.
The average age of a Denver resident in 32, they are educated, reasonably healthy, and from a diverse mix of cultures. We have one of the highest rates of education in the country, with 90 percent of residents having a high school diploma, and 30 percent having a degree.
We are also regarded as one of the slimmest places in the country. Our outdoor lifestyle, proximity to amazing countryside and emphasis on healthy living means we are apparently not as fat as most other cities. Our administration actively encourages outdoor activities, recreation and eating healthily, so we have no excuse really.
Our property market was hit along with the rest of the country, but it seems to be bouncing back again now. Short-term rentals are on the up, with landlords speculating on vacant properties in the city. Corporate rentals are up too, with many city center and suburban neighborhoods seeing an uptick in company tenants.
This is good for the city. We pride ourselves on being a modern, achieving city, and corporate rentals figures show our employers are beginning to hire again. It also means rents are staying competitive, as landlords still fight over those tenants that are moving to the city.
The RTD is our bus system, and it's pretty good for getting around. That, and the Lightrail is probably why the city is recovering quicker than others. Our public transport system is very efficient, and doesn't cost too much either. It means getting around without a car is very easy. Those wanting to travel further afield will want Union Station, which has Amtrak and Ski Train services running frequently.
If you're new to the city and have a corporate housing downtown, you don't have to worry about owning a car. Almost everything is within walking distance, or accessible by bus.
Denver is a city with a lot of traffic. Too many people depend on their cars to get around, even with all the public transport. That means getting anywhere can be difficult at peak times. It's one of the main downsides of living in the city, but it isn't limited to just here.
Overall, if you're looking for a friendly, cosmopolitan city with plenty going on, Denver is a great place to be. Whether you're buying in the suburbs, or corporate letting downtown, there are great place to eat, drink, shop and play. It really does have something for everyone.
