As a Colorado native myself, I honestly never thought I see a time like we are experiencing now… In my 30+ years, Colorado has always been a destination and a place growing faster than most. That is not the case anymore, at least for the state’s largest city.

The most recent report from national real estate company Redfin is the second in a row that records Denver among the nation’s top 10 areas people are looking to move away from.

Redfin calculates this by comparing the number of people searching to for homes inside Denver from somewhere else to the number looking for homes outside of Denver from within it.

There were 3,900 more people looking to leave Denver than enter it between February and April this year. Between January and March this year, there were 4,200 more looking to leave than enter.

Denver’s would-be population loss is the nation’s eighth-highest. San Francisco, New York City, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. together have nearly 100,000 more people looking to move than enter.
