From 2011 to 2016, the median multi-family rental rate in 80214 rose almost $500 from $832 to $1331. During that same period, the median home value rose from $193,200 to $332,100.

Though these rising prices are great if you are a landlord or seller, it is not great news for those trying to find or keep housing in the Edgewater area. This is not an issue unique to Edgewater but is impacting the whole metro area.
