High Rent in Denver, 2016 Edition: Ten Examples of $1,000-a-Month Digs

June 06, 2016 / Posted in Denver, Real Estate

Much as it was when we first created this list, rent is too damn high in Denver. Median rent is a whopping $2,200, up significantly even from last December, when prices were at $1,950. While more rentals have come online and experts predict a slight cooling in Denver’s magma-hot housing market, the upward trajectory in prices will undoubtedly continue.

As it did in our last list’s examples, $1,000 will still put a roof over your head in the Denver metro area.

But you’ll still have to sacrifice amenities and space.

Here is what $1,000 a month will nab you.
