Colorado apartment rents have consistently increased 6.2 percent annually over the last several years, compared to the national median rent raise of 3.3 percent. Statewide, one-bedroom apartment median rent is $1,310 and a two-bedroom is $1,590.
Some good news for 2016: Colorado rents are finally slowing down in some parts of the state this year. Month-over-month apartment rent increases statewide have stalled. Greenwood Village, Parker, Littleton, Highlands Ranch, Golden, and Loveland have been among the cities seeing declines, according to Apartment List.
On the flip side, apartment rent increases continued in many parts of the state, retaining enough momentum to keep Colorado ahead of the U.S. averages in January.
