Finding a place in Denver is hard. It’s so hard, in fact, that just using a photo with a “FOR RENT” sign at the top of one of our stories caused property owner Jade Perkins get “nonstop” calls from people looking for somewhere to stay.
Kevin took the photo back in 2016 in Wash Park West and I reused it in a story about rent trends, not thinking much about it.
Unfortunately, Perkins had to turn away all interested parties because she had already rented the place out — and then she reached out to us to see if we could do anything to help stop the calls.
Now, I understand things are tough out there, but I would encourage all future and current Denverite readers to look for actual ads or signs to solve their housing needs. And for those out there looking for a place to crash, we wish you the best of luck.
(Editor’s note: If it had been a newsy photo, we probably wouldn’t have been able to do much, but it was a file photo illustrating RENT AND STUFF, and we’ve replaced it with something else.)
