That's among the surprising revelations in "Top Trending Suburbs That Have Seen the Biggest Boom in Renters," a new report from RENTCafe.
The site analyzed data from 491 suburbs around the country, then ranked them based on those that registered the largest percentage jump in renters over the previous five years.
Fifteen Denver suburbs were included in the survey, with the top finisher, Lone Tree, landing in the fourteenth slot nationally. Lone Tree's renter population has gone up by a striking 66 percent in the test period.
Lone Tree is also one of three suburbs among the aforementioned fifteen whose average rent (a figure that combines the costs for all types of rental units and properties) exceeds $1,600 per month. And the other two — Centennial and Highlands Ranch — are third and fourth when it comes to the heftiest growth in renters.
The renter proliferation is slower in several other, more modestly priced Denver suburbs. Still, only one metro-area suburb has actually seen a decrease in renters. Its national slot is 481, making it one of the least attractive suburbs for renters in the entire country. Maybe that's why it is currently the only metro-area community whose one-bedroom rent is the same price it was at this time last year.
