Taryn Eby writes:

When I was looking at apartments in 2013, rent was high but not unreasonable. Then my landlord raised the rent $264/month at renewal and I decided to look for another place. The difference in one year was insane! Hundreds of dollars higher, even in less desirable neighborhoods. I make enough to pay all my bills and still save but only because I live with my boyfriend (in Aurora). I couldn't live here on my own, and I honestly wonder how others do it.
