Of the Country's top 50 most populous cities, Denver was ranked #1 as the fastest growing city in the nation. According to the new populations estimates from the census bureau, Denver had a 2.7% population increase in 2015. Also in 2015, Colorado's population as a whole grew by 102,000 people, while there were only 25,143 new homes, condos and apartments built to accommodate the influx of new residents coming to the State. This is a major indicator of why the Denver Real Estate market has been so competitive. It is hard for builders to keep up with the growing demand for housing in the state.

In Colorado, the average people in a single home is 2.5 people. to accommodate this amount of people coming to Colorado the state should have added 40,500 housing units. Colorado, is running 15,000 homes short of where it should be, adding to a deficit that has been growing from years past.

These numbers have resulted in soaring property values and rent hikes across the state, mostly evident in Denver.
