Home-hunters were just as likely to find a two-bedroom to rent below $1,356 in February as they were to find something more expensive, according to an on-line real estate company. And with a two-bedroom at that price, Denver median rents have held steady month to month, up slightly over a year ago and higher than the national figure, according to Apartment List.

The company, which uses data from both the Census and its own listings for its calculations, found no increase in rent prices between December and January and only a 0.2 percent increase from January to February. The February median this year was .9 percent higher than in February of 2019.

Nationally, Apartment List found the two-bedroom median rent was $1,194, up 0.1 percent over January and 1.7 percent over February of 2019.

Zumper, another online real estate company, looked at more than 1 million of its listings in 100 cities across the country to come up with its February results. Zumper put the two-bedroom median for Denver at $1,900, down 2.6 percent from January and down 2.1 percent from the previous February.

Nationally, according to Zumper, the two-bedroom median dropped 0.1 percent from January and inched up 0.9 percent from February of 2019 to $1,463.
