What to know about moving in Denver

How much does it cost to live in Denver?

The average cost of living for a Denver resident is $1,957 a month.1 This total includes the monthly costs for rent, food, utilities, and vehicle fuel. This puts Denver in the top 20 metros with high living costs, which isn’t a terrible ranking, but it does mean you should have a well-paying job lined up before moving to the Mile-High City.

The good news is that Denver’s average individual income of $43,376 outstrips many cities like Long Beach, California and New York City where living costs are actually higher. So while Denver’s living costs are pretty high, it's still relatively more affordable than a lot of other large cities.

Is Colorado growing quickly?

Colorado is one of the most popular destinations for interstate movers.2 It’s so popular, in fact, that the state’s rate of growth over the last decade has been nearly double the national average.3 Additionally, most of the state’s growth has been focused in urban centers like Denver County.

If Colorado’s population continues to boom, you can expect increasing home prices in Colorado to persist as more homes get purchased.

Does Colorado have a lot of wildfires?

At the end of 2021, the Boulder County area just outside of Denver experienced a devastating wildfire that claimed more than 1,000 homes and other buildings. The total damages from this one fire alone are estimated to cost over $500 million.4 And this is hardly an isolated event for the state. Based on total acres burned in 2020, Colorado ranks number 8 in the top 10 states with the most wildfires.

Unfortunately, the climate crisis is projected to cause more wildfires in many states that are already prone to them as time goes on. This doesn’t mean you should avoid moving to Colorado, but you should take the wildfire factor into account when you’re planning your move.

To protect yourself and your home, keep an emergency supply kit in your car in case you need to evacuate, make sure your home has the best fire insurance you can afford, and create an evacuation plan with everyone in your household.

Read this guide to preparing for a wildfire to get more tips that can help you avoid disaster.

Does Denver have a lot of breweries?

Love locally-brewed craft beer? Then you’d love living in Denver. In 2021, the city had more local breweries in its surrounding area than any other US city.5 And while it took second place to Portland, Oregon in our rankings of the best cities for beer lovers, the two are very close.

Here’s the deal: Denver has more breweries (91) than Portland (85), but Denver also has a larger population, so Portland actually has more breweries per capita.

So even though Portland ekes out a victory over Denver in the brewery department, living in either city would be a beer lover's dream come true. Bars and brewery tours are just a little more crowded in Denver.
