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.
