While rents in six metro-area suburbs are rising faster than in Denver proper at present, prices are still going up in most city neighborhoods, and costs remain on the high side. Median rent for a two-bedroom apartment in Denver's tenth-most-expensive neighborhood exceeds $1,600, and that's just over half the nearly $3,000 tag in the part of the city at the top of the scale.

As these numbers suggest, the latest report from RentJungle.com shows a wide range of prices from place to place within Denver's limits.

Last month, the average two-bedroom rent within the city was $1,801. Moreover, that price represented a 2.9 percent increase over the prior six months. The result was a cost increase that averaged out to $50 per month across all of Denver's neighborhoods.

Here are the latest median rents for a two-bedroom apartment in the ten most expensive Denver neighborhoods, ranked in descending order.
