Denver was home to nine of the 10 most expensive neighborhoods for renters in Colorado this summer, according to RENTCafe.
The apartment search website analyzed rents for 17 million apartments in almost 7,000 zip codes across the country as the summer ended. In Colorado, 80206 topped the list for most expensive, with average rents of $2,454, up 1.4 percent from the previous year.
Denver’s highest rent didn’t crack the U.S. top 50, a list dominated by New York and California zip codes. The zip code that includes Cherry Creek and Congress Park came in 225th nationwide and also topped the Colorado list last year.
In 80216, the average rent of $1,981 was 8 percent higher than the previous year, the biggest jump in the Colorado top 10. That 80216 zip code, which includes neighborhoods in the River North Art District, had the seventh most expensive average rent in the state.
