Seven Denver-Metro Cities Where Rent Is Still Going Up, Five Where It's Not

Last week, we shared the latest Denver rent data from Zumper by way of counting down the metro-area cities with the lowest-to-highest rent for a one-bedroom apartment.

As we noted, the median prices for rent varied by more than $300 from the top of the roster to the bottom.

Today, for this sequel, we drill deeper into the numbers, with a focus on whether the costs have risen over the past year. And just as is the case in Denver proper, where rents in some neighborhoods are still rising even though some surveys show that overall rates have plateaued or even fallen, the trend in general is still pointing upward.

Of the twelve metro-area cities analyzed by Zumper, rent for a one-bedroom apartment is higher than it was a year ago at this time, while it's either lower or flat in the five others.

Continue to count down the dozen communities, ranked from the biggest price dips to the largest cost increases and illustrated by photos of current listings courtesy of ApartmentGuide.com and a Zumper graphic showing the yearly rent evolution in Denver. Click to view the complete report.
