City Guide

Having trouble with Craigslist Golden? Can't find that special apartment for rent on Apartment Finder or Zillow? Apartment List is here to help!

Life in the old west was pretty wild. Did we say was? We meant is. Grab a tube and ride the rapids of Clear Creek. Stroll through the old streets of downtown. Put on your hiking boots and explore the backcountry trails of Golden Gate Canyon State Park. Jump off of Lookout Mountain and hang-glide over treacherous terrain. You will see that things are still undeniably, delightfully wild, with a mix of Buffalo Bill-style adventure and modern thrill-seeker insanity. Then, if you're still up for it, take a drive around town and see all the different kinds of neighborhoods Golden has to offer.

Old downtown is tucked in between the North and South Table Mountains, with lots of charming old houses, little cottages, and small apartment buildings. The newer parts are spread around the outskirts. The northern section is a very 'burby style of family-friendly living. And, the southeastern section has lots of upscale apartments to choose from. Rental rates range from $400 to over $3,000, giving local renters a whole world of options. In the $400 - $600 range are tiny apartments in old houses and little brick buildings. In the $600 - $800 range, you’ll see lots of different styles of apartment buildings with all kinds of different amenities. For about a grand, you can rent a luxury apartment, a small rental home, or a nice-sized duplex. And finally in the $1,000 - $3,000 range, there are some of the most coveted townhouses and rental homes around, most of which come with lots of space and fantastic mountain views.

Wondering what types of amenities you will see around these parts? Well, there are rental properties on the cheap with just the most basic of amenities. However, if you're looking for luxury, there are plenty of places with long lists of amenities to choose from. Those in need of a swimming pool, hot tub, or fitness center won't have to look far. There are also places with extra-convenient amenities for parents, such as on-site laundry facilities, on-site daycare, and even a preschool. You will find plenty of other extras here as well, such as tennis courts and volleyball courts, clubhouses, and pet playgrounds. If you're an amenity-minded renter, be sure to check out all the different options local rental properties have to offer.

In need of a pet-friendly pad? You will have no problem with that here. Cat and dog-friendly apartments, rental homes, and other property rentals are extremely easy to find. Dog owners will see lots of places with nice, big yards and/or pet parks to let Fido run around to his heart's content. The Lions Club park is a popular watering hole for people and pets alike. And, the endless outdoors means endless adventures for you and your best-furry-friend in the world. Pet fees are pretty reasonable, too. You can expect to pay a $150 - $200 pet deposit as well as a $150 - $200 non-refundable pet fee.

Life just doesn't get any better than right here in Golden, Colorado. So, pack up your things and get your booty down here! It's home-hunting season!

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.

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.
