The Boulder Area Rental Housing Association (BARHA) is dedicated to the needs and success of Boulder Area rental property owners and mangers. If you are looking for a great organization of owners and managers of residential rental property and /or you want to provide goods or services to our industry, then BARHA is the perfect fit for you!  With over 14,000 units represented, we are the voice of the rental property industry in the local area.  We provide education, information, advocacy and networking for our members.  Join today!


BARHA’s newsletter is included free with each membership and is a valuable resource. It includes articles of interest, calendar of events and summary of timely legal and political issues. In addition, there is a special pull-out section that lists contact information by category of service for each of our Vendor Members that we call our “Vendor Directory”.  It is designed so our owner members and other vendor members have ready access to the services and products of our excellent vendors.

Laws Specific to Boulder

Boulder has rules that don’t apply in any other city, so it is especially important to be associated with BARHA in order to have access to information that can help an owner abide by local as well as state and federal laws.


BARHA holds luncheons on the second Thursday of every month and is a great place for vital information, networking with others in the industry and great food.
