Priciest Metro Denver Places to Rent a Two-Bedroom Apartment Right Now

As we've reported, rent prices in many metro Denver communities are falling on a month-to-month basis even as they continue to show a substantial increase over the same period in 2016. This same phenomenon can be seen in Zumper's September 2017 report for the metro area, with the cost of renting a two-bedroom apartment varying by nearly $500 from community to community.

Zumper's numbers aren't identical to ones from ApartmentList.com that we recently shared in a post headlined "The One Metro-Denver Place Where Rent Is Actually Going Down," and the cities analyzed by the sites vary, too. But the digits offer a similar picture, depicting a place where dissimilarities in the number of new units coming on the market and disparities in terms of demand are common.

In such a scenario, renters may be able to save hundreds of dollars each month simply by choosing one adjacent community over another. A few blocks, or a few miles, could make a world of difference.

We've ranked Zumper's roster of twelve cities in Denver metro (including Castle Rock, which is a bit of a stretch) from the most to least expensive median prices to rent a two-bedroom apartment based on August figures. But there's plenty of other data to examine, including the median price for a one-bedroom apartment in each area, as well as month-to-month and year-to-year changes in both major categories. Count them down here.
