High Rent in Denver: Ten Examples of What $1,200 a Month Will Get You

As rents were quickly rising late last year, we did a comparative survey of what $1,000 a month would get you in metro Denver — and came up with ten very different housing options.

After another year of rising rents, we decided to repeat the exercise, this time looking for places that rent for $1,200 a month — the average in the area, according to recent figures from the Apartment Association of Metro Denver.

Here’s what we found last week:
