All that construction that Denver has put up with seems to finally be yielding results.

For the second quarter in a row, the average cost of renting an apartment decreased, according to the Denver Metro Area Apartment Vacancy and Rent Report. On top of that, it’s the biggest dollar decrease in the 36-year history of the survey.

Occasionally, I indulge in fanciful financial thinking like “what if I started renting my stupid car?” or “what if I grew more of my food in my apartment?”

It’s a good thing I don’t work in city government because all I would think about is “What if everybody paid their dang parking tickets from 2016 and Denver suddenly had $14 million more in the coffers?”
