Neighborhoods of Golden

Historic District **-** Probably the most beautiful part of town, the rent is highest in this area and most are loft apartments that are not particularly large. But, if you can land one of the rentals in the historic district, you'll never regret taking the opportunity because it is in the center of the prettiest part of Golden.

For those not wanting to live in a loft, the downtown district has also seen a great deal of condominium construction, many of which are for rent.

This is where you can find 2-bedroom rentals.

Around the School of Mines - Most of the apartments in this area are designed for college students: stack 2 or 3 high and 7-to-10 across, the only true apartment complexes are around the university.

The vast majority of these apartments are 2-bedroom.

12th Street - Like downtown, 12th street has both lofts and historic homes for rent. Most of the homes on 12th street are smaller 2- and 3-bedroom homes, though there are a few that are larger.

East Street - The newest construction in the center of Golden has happened on East Street over the years. It is definitely possible to find a 2-bedroom rental in this quaint part of town. And, East Street is a fun and interesting place to live.

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.
