This report was produced from 2007 to 2011.
The purpose of this combined effort by the Colorado Housing and Finance Authority and the Colorado Division of Housing is to sponsor the Affordable Housing Vacancy and Rental Survey to show vacancy rates by type of apartment (efficiency; one bedroom; two bedroom, one bath; two bedroom, two bath; three bedroom; and other) and rent levels by location, age and size of building.
The Survey includes all multifamily rental; two units and up. Affordable housing for this survey is defined as those units that are deed-restricted and require residents to have an income that is no higher than the respective Area median Income appropriate to the governmental funding requirements for that property. The Area median Income is determined by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The Survey covers seventeen major market areas: Colorado Springs, Denver Metro Area (Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder/Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, and Jefferson Counties), Fort Collins/Loveland, Grand Junction, Greeley, and Pueblo.
