In most metro Denver cities, $1,300 or less gets you a one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment that's under 1,000 square feet in size.

However, cities like Aurora and Brighton, further from the city core, are outliers — there, you can nab up a two-bedroom apartment that's larger than 1,000 square feet and comes with on-site parking, even a garage.
