Around this time last year, we posted about the ten Denver neighborhoods with the least expensive rent — a respite from all the news about high rent prices in the Mile High City.

The numbers came from Zumper, which compiled median rent prices on one-bedroom apartments for all the neighborhoods in Denver over the summer.

Now, Zumper has updated its numbers, giving us the opportunity to highlight the most reasonably priced neighborhoods today and compare the data to information from 2015 — and despite reports that Denver rent prices in general have fallen over the past year, the news at the lower end of the scale isn't especially positive.

While all of the one-bedrooms on this list go for below $1,000 per month, the costs in 2016 are higher than those from a year earlier for every slot — tenth through first. Most of the increases are in the $60-$75-per-month range, but in one case, the difference is $115.

There are still some bargains out there — but you'll have to look harder for them.

Look below to see the photo-illustrated top ten for the summer of 2016, as juxtaposed with those from the summer of 2015. That information is followed by Zumper graphics showing median one-bedroom rent prices for every Denver neighborhood for both years. Click to see the latest Zumper item.
