With Denver being considered as on of the locations for the new Amazon Headquarters, speculation on what that could do to rent in the area is already being discussed. Of 20 cities being considered, Denver and Nashville are the two with the most potential of feeling the increase in rent. In the Denver Business Journal, Zillow estimates an increase of 3.6% in rent in the Denver area if Amazon HQ moves here. Read more below:
Denver rents would zoom if Amazon builds HQ2 here, says report
By Ben Miller – Contributing Writer
a day agoIf Amazon.com Inc. picks Denver for its new HQ2, residents could see rents going up more than ever.
According to research by Zillow, Denver rents could increase an additional 2.3 percentage points each year if Amazon picks Denver. Only Nashville would see rents rise more (2.4 more percentage points) than Denver's in the country if that city is selected.
In January, the Seattle-based e-commerce giant (Nasdaq: AMZN) released a list of 20 cities that could end up with the company's coveted new $5 billion second headquarters campus that it says eventually will employ 50,000 people.
Of those 20 cities, Nashville and Denver rank one and two when it comes to expected HQ2 impacts on rent, followed by Los Angeles. Without Denver being selected as HQ2, Zillow expects Denver-area rents to increase 3.6 percent next year.
What would an additional 2.3 percent increase in rent mean? Zillow estimated that the current median rent in the Denver area is $2,047. If Amazon picks Denver as HQ2, that would jump to $2,168 in 2019.
"Nashville and Denver are the only two metros that could see a greater boost to rents due to Amazon than Seattle has seen," said Aaron Terrazas, Zillow chief economist, in a statement.
And Seattle's housing costs have gone through the roof in the past few years. Although Amazon isn't the only reason Seattle's housing costs have skyrocketed, the company is on a manic hiring frenzy in that city.
The New York Times reported today on the Zillow report, quoting Felicia Griffin, executive director of United for a New Economy, a Colorado nonprofit that has opposed the Amazon project, who said “I definitely think it has the possibility of pushing us over the tipping point."
According to the Denver Business Journal, "Metro Denver's year-over-year gain in home-resale prices stood at 8.4 percent in February, almost an entire percentage point higher than the annual gain the previous month." Read more below:
Home-resale price growth still rising in metro Denver, report says
By Kelcey McClung – Reporter, Denver Business Journal
Apr 24, 2018, 12:46pmMetro Denver's year-over-year gain in home-resale prices stood at 8.4 percent in February, almost an entire percentage point higher than the annual gain the previous month.
That's according to the latest S&P/Case-Shiller Home Prices Indices report, released Tuesday.
January's year-over-year gain in Denver-area resale prices was 7.6 percent, according to the closely-followed monthly report series.
In February, only three major U.S. cities showed greater year-over-year price increases out of 20 big markets tracked by the Case-Shiller report series: Seattle (up 10.1 percent from the previous February), Las Vegas (up 11.6 percent) and San Francisco (up 10.1 percent).
Denver surpassed Los Angeles this month, though just by a hair — the California city was up 8.3 percent from the previous February.
Denver tied with Detroit with an 8.4 percent annual gain.
The average year-over-year increase for all 20 cities, as well as the national price gain, was 6.3 percent in February, the report said.
Who wants Amazon the most? Here's how residents in Denver and other HQ2 cities respondedApr 18, 2018, 9:27am

Residents of Atlanta, Pittsburgh and Indianapolis appear willing to do whatever it takes to win Amazon’s second North American headquarters. Their cousins in Denver, Austin and Boston? Not so much.
The Business Journals for the first time has partnered with Elon University in North Carolina to conduct an online poll in all 19 of the U.S. regions that, along with the Canadian city of Toronto, remain in the running for Amazon’s “HQ2.” The survey was conducted from March 30 through April 3 and was designed to gauge each city’s enthusiasm — and willingness to make sacrifices —to land the Seattle-based company’s eye-popping $5 billion proposal to develop a new campus for up to 50,000-employees.
While the majority of the survey’s 7,397 respondents voiced general support for the project, disparities abound. For example, some cities proved more sensitive than others to HQ2’s potential effects on traffic, and there was broad disagreement as to whether local small businesses will benefit, or be hurt, by the move. Many offered full-throated support in favor of special tax and financial incentives, while majorities elsewhere said they are obliged to tell the company to take nothing and like it.
In Los Angeles, for example, 21 percent of respondents said the city should offer “as much as possible” to land Amazon’s HQ2 — the highest percentage in the country. Compare that to places like Austin where just 8 percent thought landing HQ2 was worth offering huge incentives to the company.
