Posted at 3:13 PM, Dec 17, 2017

DENVER – Rent in the City of Denver is expensive, that’s no mystery and is a well-known fact – but at least it didn't make it in the Top 10 in a national report released by apartment rental company Zumper.

The Mile High City saw an uptick of 1.40 percent for a one-bedroom rental from last month, according to Zumper’s national report for the month of December. Compared to last year, rent for a one-bedroom in Denver grew 15.60 percent.

Denver was tied with Philadelphia for the no. 15 spot, though rent for a one-bedroom in the City of Brotherly Love only increased 0.70 percent from last month.

On average, the national median rent for a one-bedroom apartment grew 4.9 percent, or $1,233 a month.

The median rent for an apartment in Denver is $1,410, according to Zumper.

So how does the rest of the county fare?

It should come as no surprise that San Francisco and New York start the list at no. 1 and 2, respectively. San Jose, Calif., Washington, D.C., and Boston, Mass. round up the Top 5 from Zumper’s report.
