There are more neighborhoods in Denver than you care to get to know for sure, at least for now, during your apartment search. You can select some of the best neighborhoods from rankings and reviews, and then you can start searching out listings for apartments Denver CO has to offer in those specific areas.
For example, there is one top neighborhood in Denver called Wellshire. As a neighborhood in which to live, it gets an overall grade of A+. The cost of living is the only grade for the neighborhood that falls below the B- threshhold. The median rent for the neighborhood is just above the $2000 mark. While the neighborhood mostly caters to homeowners, you might want to search out apartments in the area, especially if you are looking at luxury apartments for rent in Denver.
Montclair is also a popular neighborhood in Denver CO, and it is a little more renter friendly. That goes for the numer of renters and the median rent price, which is just shy of $1500. Crime and safety and cost of living are the only two categories in which Montclair earns a grade of C. Try searching out apartments in Montclair, or you can wait just a moment to learn about another great neighborhood in Denver.
When browsing apartments Denver CO listings, another neighborhood you might like is Washington Park West. Washington Park West gets an overall grade of A, and its only C is for cost of living. However, the neighborhood does cater to renters on about the same level as Montclair, and rent prices are about the same, too. Does Washington Park West sound like it may be a good fit?
Stapleton is the next neighborhood for you to take a look at if it sounds good to you. This neighborhood also gets an overall grade of A, and the same two categories that Washington Park received a C for are the ones that Stapleton gets a C for as well. Median rent is a little higher, right above $1600, but there should be more apartments to choose from. Why do I say that? Well, Stapleton has a larger population.
The last neighborhood we are going to take a look at is Speer. Speer may get 3 C’s, but they are for the same two categories as the last two neighborhoods + one more, housing. Don’t let that deter you from looking at your housing options in this neighborhood though, as Speer ranks in the top 25 Denver neighborhoods in which to live.
Speer is also predominantly a neighborhood full of renters, the first of its kind on this list. Additionlly, median rent is right at $1000, and that is half of what you would expect to pay in Wellshire. What do you make of this list of neighborhoods? Hopefully you see one you like, and you can find a great apartment to call home.
