Denver Living

Residents here love to stay in good shape. Health and fitness are a top priority for most folks that choose to live here, and there are plenty of ways to embrace healthy choices! Hop on your skis or snowboard and hit the slopes, take advantage of one of the city bike paths or hiking trails, or head to Boulder's Flatirons or Rocky Mountain National Park -- both within an hour's drive from downtown. Winters here are pretty serious, so if you have a car (which you probably will), make sure you get covered parking or at least garage space so you don't have to dig your vehicle out of the snow on the street. If you have a dog, you'll find plenty of pet-friendly studio apartments, and most public places are dog-friendly, too. It's a beautiful and highly livable city with a high quality of life, which is why when people move here they tend to end up staying.

Studio Apartments in Denver

The average rent for an apartment in Denver is $1,550, which means that a studio will fall a bit below that. There are lots of new developments, which pull in a higher rent every month and offer lots of great perks, like gyms, laundry on the premises, shared public spaces and more. These amenities can be nice when you're living in a studio and might be worth the extra cash you're shelling out to afford them. The vacancy rate in Denver is around 5%, which is pretty standard. More and more units are being built all the time, so you can expect rental units to be available, especially in the metro area. You can also sometimes score more concessions, like a month or two of free rent, from landlords who are trying to lure new tenants. The more affordable neighborhoods are in the northern and eastern suburbs. Wheat Ridge, north Aurora, central Aurora and Arvada tend to be the hottest rental markets for studios in Denver.

November 2018 Denver Rent Report

Welcome to the November 2018 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 slightly over the past month

Denver rents have declined 0.2% over the past month, but have increased slightly by 1.2% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Denver stand at $1,060 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,350 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in August. Denver's year-over-year rent growth is on par with the state average of 1.2%, but exceeds the national average of 1.1%.

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.

  • Parker has seen rents fall by 1.5% 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 $1,870.
  • Broomfield has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 4.8%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,730, while one-bedrooms go for $1,380.
  • Denver proper has the least expensive rents in the Denver metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,350; rents decreased 0.2% over the past month but were up 1.2% 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 slightly in other cities across the state, with Colorado as a whole logging rent growth of 1.2% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 2.6% in Fort Collins and 1.2% in Colorado Springs.
  • Denver's median two-bedroom rent of $1,350 is above the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.1% over the past year compared to the 1.2% increase in Denver.
  • While Denver's rents rose slightly over the past year, the city of Seattle saw a decrease of 1.3%.
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Denver than most comparable cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,100, 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.


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.
