DENVER – More people are looking to leave Denver than move in now, according to a new report by real estate company Redfin.

The Mile High city is 6th on a list of the top ten cities with people actively working to move outside of their metro areas.

According to Redfin, nearly 23-percent of the people surveyed say they’re looking at moving out of Denver. Of those, roughly 20-percent say they want to stay in Colorado but move to other cities around the state like Colorado Springs and Fort Collins.

The Colorado Association of Realtors said that home prices in the Denver metro area have been going up at a steady pace for the last five years, but the trend of people looking for homes outside of the Metro area has only been noticeable for about the last two.
