Brighton

Studio apartments in Brighton are the perfect option for young professionals or renters of all ages who like to live simply. You'll have just enough space to stretch out after a long day at Barr Lake State Park and can forget about the hassle of cleaning a huge space. Studio rent in Brighton starts at about $850, and your apartment amenities are likely to include your own parking space and hardwood floors in the living space.

Where to Rent in Brighton

Brighton provides tons of wide open spaces, yet at the same time it serves as a hub for food, entertainment and festivals. Your studio apartment will place you in close proximity to beloved sites like Berry Patch Farms and the Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory no matter where you set down your roots. Brighton also serves as a wonderful bedroom community for Denver professionals who want to spend their days downtown and their evenings under the stars.

Northwest Brighton: Brighton studio apartment options are somewhat sparse, but you will find several options in the northwest corner of town. This part of Brighton is near the South Platte River and quaint neighborhood parks. Spend your mornings walking along the water and your nights cuddled up in your cozy abode.

Southeast Brighton: If you snag a studio in southeast Brighton, you'll find yourself practically on the shores of Barr Lake. This means your summer weekends are always full of leisurely fishing trips and bike rides along the shore. You'll also be mere miles from downtown Brighton and close to U.S. Route 6, which can get you to Westminster and beyond.

Life in Brighton

Brighton residents are blessed with all the adventure sports they can handle. Kayaking, hiking and boating are within reach. In the winter time, skiing is just a short drive from your Brighton studio. Since 2001, the town has hosted the Murray Farms Maize each autumn. This maize maze, as it happens, is always shaped in an intricate pattern and provides a fun afternoon for visitors of all ages.

When you're not filling your basket with produce at the LuLus Farm Roadside Market, drive to Denver to enjoy fine dining in LoHi or an artsy afternoon in the RiNo Art District. A world of culture and amusement in the Mile High City is so close, and your studio back in Brighton is always waiting to welcome you back to fall asleep to the sound of crickets or the easy tide of a local creek.

December 2018 Brighton Rent Report

Welcome to the December 2018 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 increase sharply over the past month

Brighton rents have increased 1.3% over the past month, and are up significantly by 4.2% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Brighton stand at $1,270 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,620 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in September. Brighton's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.8%, as well as the national average of 1.3%.

Rents rising across the Denver Metro

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Brighton, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Denver metro, all of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

  • Broomfield has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 5.5%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,730, while one-bedrooms go for $1,380.
  • Over the past month, Parker has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 1.4%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $1,850, while one-bedrooms go for $1,460.
  • Denver proper has the least expensive rents in the Denver metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,340; rents fell 0.2% over the past month but rose 1.9% over the past year.
  • Thornton has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Denver metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,880; rents grew 0.3% over the past month and 5.1% over the past year.

Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Brighton

As rents have increased significantly in Brighton, a few large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Compared to most large cities across the country, Brighton is less affordable for renters.

  • Rents increased slightly in other cities across the state, with Colorado as a whole logging rent growth of 1.8% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 2.5% in Fort Collins and 1.5% in Colorado Springs.
  • Brighton's median two-bedroom rent of $1,620 is above the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.3% over the past year compared to the 4.2% rise in Brighton.
  • While Brighton's rents rose significantly over the past year, the city of Seattle saw a decrease of 0.4%.
  • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Brighton than most large cities. For example, Phoenix has a median 2BR rent of $1,060, where Brighton is more than one-and-a-half times that price.

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.
