Denver
Rocky Mountain Lifestyle

We’re not lying when we say that in Denver, health and fitness are king - everyone looks like they spend most of their time in a gym. Don’t let anyone catch you smoking unless you spend most of your time on E. Colfax Ave., begging for change. Invest in an REI membership, secure a pair of skis or a snowboard, and exchange your loafers for a pair of Chacos (which you should expect to wear year-round).

Seriously, though: this town loves outdoor sports. Boulder’s Flatirons protest the plains a meager 30 miles away, and the Estes Park entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park is only 50 miles further. If you’re not willing to get active, you’re going to miss out on a lot of social opportunities. This also means you’ll need a mode of transportation and great parking. Make sure your apartment has either covered parking, assigned parking sports or a secure parking garage — or make sure to find a roommate with one and one hell of a closet for all that gear. Let’s get you acquainted with your options for storage—er, accommodation!

Denver is also dog city (23 dog parks in the Denver metro area) and it seems that almost every apartment, bar, restaurant, grocery store, mall, etc is pet friendly. Don't be surprised to see a friendly pup hop up on a bar-stool next to you at the local pub and chow down.

Country Roads, Take Me Home…

Henry John Deutschendorf, Jr. (John Denver to you noobs) didn’t err when he chained not only his name but also his decidedly smiley brand of folk music to this city and its nearby mountains. But you’ll likely be smiling only after you master these roads, which can feel a bit “country” even inside the city limits.

Like many cities in the western U.S., Denver evolved organically: planners only later imposing number schemes and cardinal directionality, bringing order to (beautiful) chaos. Thus the neighborhoods in Denver follow no pattern. Instead, they pop up like dandelions in springtime.

Great metaphor, huh? But if it’s true, it means you’re going to have a time and a half navigating this prairie. Here are some hints to aid you find your pick among the local flora.

The Denver Arrangement

Because there really are so many varieties, we’ve picked only the neighborhoods closest to the city center.

LoDo: Ah, the stately orchid. Lower Downtown (get it now, dontcha?) perches on the park-lined Platte River. Close to Union Station, Coors Field, MCAD (the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver), and the Auraria Campus (an educational facility housing three public universities), LoDo leaves little for want. Parking is crazy, and crazy expensive, so find a complex with a private garage if possible. Unsurprisingly, this zone has the highest rates in town. Don’t get your hopes up for anything less than $900/month for a studio, $1650/month for a two-bedroom unit. This is also a relatively pet-friendly area. Unless your beloved Fido is smaller than the average carry-on luggage item—and you don’t mind paying an extra fee—look elsewhere.

Uptown/Capitol Hill: Each portion of this neighborhood borders the central business district, making the iris a perfect example for it. Irises look a lot like orchids, but (due to being more common), they brag a slightly lower price tag. $800-$900/month for a spacious studio to enjoy the urban residential feel of Uptown. If you care to mix this sentiment with historic architecture; and higher population density, skip south to Capitol Hill. Cap Hill has a young, energetic, pedestrian-friendly feel—although if you’re not looking to extend your college years into professional adulthood, you may find the neighbors tiresome, despite their “eccentricity.” $700/month all-inclusive studio near Wax Trax Records is the low end. More pet friendly than LoDo.

Five Points: You’d do well to call this one the desert sage. Its close-in location makes this neighborhood prime fodder for urban renewal. Great access to downtown with a fraction of the action. (In other words: perfect for commuters!) Lots of stand-alone homes converted to duplexes and single-accommodation apartments, some of which go for as little as $825/month (for a whole house?!), but some as much as $1500/month (2nd floor converted executive condo). Expect the deposit to match the monthly rent.

East Denver: The multicolored gazania represents this strange conglomeration of communities. Park Hill is the first intentional interracial neighborhood, and Congress Park was gentrified long ago. The latter is jealously close to the Botanic Gardens and Cheesman Park. Both neighborhoods are vying to be considered part of the proper “midtown” section of Denver, and new apartment complexes will reflect this competitive stance in their rates. A two-bedroom townhouse in Park Hill ought to run you $1400-$1600/month, but that will likely include a pool and gym access. It’s easier to find single apartments in Congress Park, which should cost $600-$800/month and require a 12-month lease.

Washington Park and Baker: Washington Park is as all-American as the sunflower. Imagine “Life is Good”-clad parents training for marathons with their wee ones in the stroller, careening down a beautiful, tree-lined street. This perfect portrait is gonna cost, ya, though: expect around $800-1000/month for a single duplex apartment complete with washer and dryer and an assigned parking spot. The historic Baker neighborhood, on the other hand, sits west of Washington Park and boasts dive bars and dirty music venues. Here’s South Denver’s veritable cactus. It doesn’t get any edgier than setting off to thrift the S. Broadway strip. $650/month for a two bedroom apartment sets the bottom range; a single room in a renovated Victorian, however, can cost you that much alone.

Lincoln Park: The dahlia of Denver, Lincoln Park is awesome. Revitalization work is well underway which would turn this close-in neighborhood into a cultural hub. That said, it’s not there yet…So be wary and check the digs out thoroughly. Inexpensive rent here (some single units $500/month), but you’re usually looking at an older complex.

Highlands: At long last! The coveted rose. The Highlands enclave has become incredibly popular in recent years, as it combines the amenities of the other close-in neighborhoods without the parking problem of LoDo.. Sitting just across I-25 from downtown, Highlands consists of pockets of boutiques and pubs, solid restaurants with local flavor and heaps of diverse housing. $800/month for a one bedroom luxury apartment; $1400/month for a three-bedroom ranch house. And everyone has a dog or baby, according to his or her preference!

The best way to find an apartment in Denver is simply to go meandering in this sunny wonderland yourself. Just don’t get distracted and try to bed down in one of the many glorious parks—that’s still illegal, even in Denver. Good luck, dear hopeful Coloradoan. Recall the words of our patron saint: “Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy…”

Now go getcha some!

December 2017 Denver Rent Report

Welcome to the December 2017 Denver Rent Report. Denver rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Denver rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Denver rents declined over the past month

Denver rents have declined 0.8% over the past month, but have increased slightly by 1.7% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Denver stand at $1,040 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,320 for a two-bedroom. This is the third straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in August. Denver's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 2.8%, as well as the national average of 2.7%.

Rents rising across the Denver Metro

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Denver, 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.

  • Lone Tree has seen rents fall by 2.5% over the past month, the biggest drop in the metro. It's also the most expensive city in the Denver metro with a two-bedroom median of $1,950.
  • Broomfield has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 5.7%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,640, while one-bedrooms go for $1,310.
  • Denver proper has the least expensive rents in the Denver metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,320; rents fell 0.8% over the past month but rose 1.7% over the past year.

Denver rents more affordable than many comparable cities nationwide

As rents have increased slightly in Denver, a few other large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more quickly. Denver is still more affordable than most similar cities across the country.

  • Rents increased moderately in other cities across the state, with Colorado as a whole logging rent growth of 2.8% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 4.3% in Colorado Springs and 2.2% in Fort Collins.
  • Denver's median two-bedroom rent of $1,320 is above the national average of $1,160. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.7% over the past year compared to the 1.7% increase in Denver.
  • While Denver's rents rose slightly over the past year, many cities nationwide saw more substantial increases, including Phoenix (+3.9%), San Diego (+3.9%), and Los Angeles (+3.8%).
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Denver than most comparable cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,050, which is more than twice the price in Denver.

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.

Overview of Findings

Apartment List has released Denver’s results from the second annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. The survey, which drew on responses from over 30,000 renters, provides insight into what states and cities must do to meet the needs of the 105 million American renters nationwide.

“Denver renters expressed great satisfaction with the city overall,” says Andrew Woo, Director of Data Science at Apartment List. “However, ratings varied greatly across different categories, indicating that even though renters love the Mile High City, some things can be better.”

Key findings in Denver include the following:

  • Denver renters gave their city an A- overall for satisfaction.
  • The highest-rated categories for Denver were access to parks and pet friendliness, which both received scores of A-.
  • Renters here are satisfied with their access to public transportation, the weather, local jobs and career opportunities, and state and local taxes. Scores in these categories ranged from B- to B+.
  • The areas where Denver renters hold primary concern are in the quality of local schools (C-), commute times (C), and the cost of living (D).
  • Millennial renters are incredibly satisfied with their city, giving an overall rating of A, while renters who are parents are less satisfied, giving a score of C-.
  • Denver did relatively well compared to other cities like Seattle (B+), Portland (B), and Salt Lake City (C).
  • The top rated cities nationwide for renter satisfaction included Arlington, VA; Lincoln, NE; Pasadena, CA; Boston, MA; and Madison, WI. The lowest rated cities included Newark, NJ; Bronx, NY; Bridgeport, CT; Baltimore, MD; and Salinas, CA.

Renters say:

  • “I love all the pet friendly, outdoorsy, tea drinking, free spirited folks. I love the breathtaking Rocky Mountains and the accessibility to public parks.” —Bonnie B.
  • “I love Denver because you are so close to so many different things. The city, suburbs, nightlife, outdoor activities, and the mountains are all a short drive away. I am not a fan of the high cost of living or the number of people constantly moving here.” —Anon.
  • “The public schools in Denver are terrible and need to be improved.” —Miriam T.
