Good news and bad news now when it comes to looking for a place to rent, the vacancy rate in Grand Junction has double over the past year, but that’s because of the overall economy and people moving out of the valley.

The quarterly numbers from the Grand Junction Housing Authority were released a little while ago, reporting a vacancy rate of 3.1%.
The housing authority says this is making it easier for clients to find a home, but the down side is that it's because people are packing up and moving out of the city.

New numbers will be released in May and the housing authority tells us that they expect the vacancy rate to increase even more.
