The Metro Denver City With the Same One-Bedroom Rent as a Year Ago

Metro Denver rent costs have been moderating of late, particularly on a month-to-month basis. But the lingering effects of sky-high price increases over the past twelve months mean that rent in most communities remains considerably pricier than it was this time last year.

With one notable exception.

This factoid is contained within the February 2019 rent report from Zumper, which tends toward the sunny side of the street, particularly for those looking to secure a one-bedroom apartment in greater Denver.

The heftiest price bump for a one-bedroom in the metro area from month to month is the 5.4 percent rise in Arvada — and even that amount is modest compared to the double-digit increases that have been common in the Mile High City over recent years.

Better yet, the latest one-bedroom prices fell or remained flat from a monthly perspective in ten of the twelve places analyzed by Zumper. The only other price rise beyond Arvada happened in Littleton, at plus-5.1 percent.

The situation isn't quite as positive when the year-over-year numbers are crunched. The one-bedroom rents in four cities are up by more than 10 percent since February 2018, and in excess of 5 percent in five others.

As for the city in the top spot, its rent dropped 1.4 percent over the last month and is exactly the same as it was a year ago.

Continue to count down the aforementioned twelve cities, ranked by the largest to the smallest rent increase for a one-bedroom apartment over the past year.
