With just under 35,000 permanent residents, Brighton is a treasure trove of history. If you are interested in the history of the old west then this is a great place to move to and settle. The city was originally a railroad and stagecoach depot with a large farming area. The Denver suburb has evolved over the decades into a vibrant community full of interesting people and a prospering economy.

Moving to Brighton

Moving here is fairly straightforward. You will need to submit an application with references for all adults. The best references are from your current and former employers as well as your past landlord. While you probably won't have to account for every residence since you were a wee toddler, you should be prepared to provide references for about the last three to five years, and maybe a little longer if you tend to move every time your lease is up. Don't forget references for your furry four-legged family members, too. Check the individual pet policies if you own a Great Dane or a "rowdy" dog, as many places will not rent to people with large dogs or dogs from the so-called vicious breeds list. 

What it Will Cost You

The smaller the apartment, the less you'll pay in rent, but overall any size apartment in Brighton is reasonably priced. Save money -- and simplify your monthly budgeting by scoring an all bills paid studio, 1 or 2 bedroom. When you start looking for 4 bedrooms or more, it may be more economical to rent a house instead.

Brighton

September 2020 Brighton Rent Report

Welcome to the September 2020 Brighton Rent Report. Brighton rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Brighton rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Brighton rents increased moderately over the past month

Brighton rents have increased 0.3% over the past month, but have decreased sharply by 6.5% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Brighton stand at $1,338 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,695 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in June. Brighton's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of -0.4%, as well as the national average of 0.3%.

    Rent trends vary across the Denver Metro

    While rent prices have decreased in Brighton over the past year, the rest of the metro is seeing varying rent trends. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Denver metro, half have seen increases, while the other half have been decreasing. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

    • Denver proper has seen rents fall by 0.1% over the past month, the biggest drop in the metro. It also has the least expensive rents in the Denver metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,342.
    • Arvada has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 1.9%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,587, while one-bedrooms go for $1,254.
    • Thornton has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Denver metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,942; rents increased 0.5% over the past month but remained flat year-over-year.

    Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Brighton

    As rents have fallen sharply in Brighton, a few large cities nationwide have seen prices increase, in some cases substantially. Compared to most large cities across the country, Brighton is less affordable for renters.

    • Although rents across cities in Colorado have been slightly on the rise, the state's growth as a whole has held steady over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 2.1% in Colorado Springs and 0.1% in Fort Collins.
    • Brighton's median two-bedroom rent of $1,695 is above the national average of $1,195. Nationwide, rents have held steady over the past year.
    • While rents in Brighton fell sharply over the past year, the city of Phoenix saw an increase of 1.7%.

    Methodology - Recent Updates:

    Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

    Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

    Methodology:

    Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

    Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

    Read more about our methodology here.

    About Rent Reports:

    Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

    We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.

    September 2020 Brighton Rent Report

    Welcome to the September 2020 Brighton Rent Report. Brighton rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Brighton rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

    Brighton rents increased moderately over the past month

    Brighton rents have increased 0.3% over the past month, but have decreased sharply by 6.5% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Brighton stand at $1,338 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,695 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in June. Brighton's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of -0.4%, as well as the national average of 0.3%.

      Rent trends vary across the Denver Metro

      While rent prices have decreased in Brighton over the past year, the rest of the metro is seeing varying rent trends. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Denver metro, half have seen increases, while the other half have been decreasing. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

      • Denver proper has seen rents fall by 0.1% over the past month, the biggest drop in the metro. It also has the least expensive rents in the Denver metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,342.
      • Arvada has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 1.9%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,587, while one-bedrooms go for $1,254.
      • Thornton has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Denver metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,942; rents increased 0.5% over the past month but remained flat year-over-year.

      Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Brighton

      As rents have fallen sharply in Brighton, a few large cities nationwide have seen prices increase, in some cases substantially. Compared to most large cities across the country, Brighton is less affordable for renters.

      • Although rents across cities in Colorado have been slightly on the rise, the state's growth as a whole has held steady over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 2.1% in Colorado Springs and 0.1% in Fort Collins.
      • Brighton's median two-bedroom rent of $1,695 is above the national average of $1,195. Nationwide, rents have held steady over the past year.
      • While rents in Brighton fell sharply over the past year, the city of Phoenix saw an increase of 1.7%.
      • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Brighton than most large cities. For example, Phoenix has a median 2BR rent of $1,107, where Brighton is more than one-and-a-half times that price.
