On this week’s Drinks and Deep Dives show, Chelsea Scott joined me to talk about trends in rent data for Denver and the metro area; then, we did a deep dive into a multi family Portfolio Analysis she’s working on with a client. For those of you who don’t know, Chelsea is the head of our Portfolio Analysis division. Our clients can come to her with their portfolios and she can run different scenarios to help them figure out how to optimize their properties to achieve their goals.

Denver Rent Trends 2020-2021
Looking at Denver rent trend data, we can see how Denver and the metro area have been performing between June 2020 and June 2021. Although there are theories that the market hasn’t been performing optimally since covid, the data actually shows steady growth. For a more in-depth look at the data and some helpful charts, check out this Rent Trend Data for the Denver Metro Area – Should I Raise Rents? blog post.
Portfolio Analysis of Loveland Multi Family
For our deep dive, we looked at a portfolio for one of our clients, and Chelsea explained some of the different options he has to optimize his properties. He currently owns two fourplexes in Loveland, CO that are renting significantly below market rates. He’s trying to decide if he should hang on to them and bring them up to market rates, or if it’s better just to sell them. As usual, there isn’t one right answer to this question; it all depends on how he feels about the properties and what his goals are. Check out the Portfolio Analysis: Fourplexes in Loveland – Raise Rents or Leverage Up? blog post to read more about it and view the rental property analyses.
Be on the lookout for another podcast featuring this same portfolio in which we used a Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) analysis to examine the properties. (Note: the SWOT analysis will publish around the end of August.)
