Denver Rents Are Going Up Again

Through a good portion of last year, rent prices in the metro Denver area began to plateau in many, though not all, parts of the city. But the trends appear to be changing. According to a just-released report from apartmentlist.com, the cost of rent is up in most of the ten major neighborhoods highlighted by the site when analyzed both monthly and yearly.

The major takeaways from the report: Denver rents grew by 0.5 percent over this past month, with prices rising by 1.1 percent over the past year. The city proper has the third-highest rents in the metro, with Highlands Ranch standing as the most expensive. One-bedrooms in Highlands Ranch go for $1,430 on average, while the median cost for a two-bedroom is $1,860.

As for the aforementioned ten neighborhoods, the rent changes there vary from slight dips to increases of as much as 2.9 percent over the past month and 7.9 percent on an annual basis.
