TurboTenant rolled out eight surveys to landlord and tenant audiences in the first half of 2022, garnering over 4,000 complete responses.

“It was no surprise to hear from independent owners here at Colorado are suspending their portfolio growth efforts, based on our report. Although there has been some decline in house prices nationally, Northern Colorado remains one of the most attractive real estate markets in the country,” said Seamus Nally, CEO of TurboTenant. “If local housing prices flatten or fall, I expect independent owners to quickly begin to grow their portfolios again. In the current climate with rising interest rates, they gain an advantage since independent owners are not limited not financing with conventional mortgages. Also, recessions generally put upward pressure on the rental market, which we expect.”
