People who seek out mid-term rentals are traveling nurses and professionals on temporary assignment or people displaced from their homes for a duration of time.  It’s become a popular investment strategy because in many areas, like Broomfield there is no rental license required.

The “rent by the room” investment strategy involves renting out individual rooms within a single property, such as a house or apartment, rather than leasing the entire unit to a single tenant. This approach has gained traction as it allows investors to maximize rental income by catering to multiple tenants simultaneously. Each tenant pays for their designated room and shares common areas like kitchens and living rooms. This is a popular strategy among house hackers who choose to rent out the rooms in the house they are living in. In Broomfield you’re legally able to house 4 unrelated people in one rental unit.

Long-term rentals

Long-term rentals are a smart strategy for a more hands-off approach and a buy and hold mindset. In an appreciating market, like Broomfield, if the property’s rent can cover the mortgage, plus an additional 10% for vacancies and repairs, then you’re property is increasing in value the longer you hold it.
