New data from Apartment List shows what a difference a few months makes.
On August 1, we reported that the price of renting a one-bedroom apartment in Denver went up by a higher percentage from month to month than in any other major city in the country.
Then, a month later, data showed that the percentage increase of one-bedroom rent in Denver was greater on a year-to-year basis than in America's 25 priciest markets.
But now, circa December 2018, Denver's median rent is considerably lower than that of San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, Seattle, Austin and even Boulder, where a typical two-bedroom is going for $1,420, nearly $100 more than in Denver.
Granted, rent in plenty of Denver neighborhoods exceeds the $1,340 median amount estimated by Apartment List; the figure is an average that incorporates the most affordable spots as well as the trendiest.
Yet the median two-bedroom rent price for every Denver suburb other than one is higher, with such a pad costing in excess of $600 more per month in the most expensive burg, Lone Tree.
Count down the aforementioned thirteen communities, ranked from highest to lowest two-bedroom rents.
