Helpful Information for Renters

Rental Options for Summit County and surrounding areas

Affordable Housing

Affordable housing units are priced below market rent and have household income restrictions.  All of these units have long waiting lists and are best to consider if you plan to stay in the county for several years and do not have an immediate housing need.

              • Mountain Creek Apartments – Dillon – 970.468.9047 (Rebecca Lopez)

Property Management Companies & Apartment Complexes

Property management & apartment complex websites often provide available unit listings before they’ve hit the classifieds market, providing you with better odds of obtaining housing.  They are also a great resource for those weary of scams.

              • Eagles Nest – Leadville – 719.486.5000
              • Mt. Massive Manor – Leadville – 719.486.2431

Facebook Groups

Facebook groups are ideal for finding roommates.  On occasion, you can find posts for rentals or even properties for sale.

Classifieds

Classifieds offer ads for both roommates and individual units.  Craigslist is an excellent resource as long as you are careful to avoid scams.  Craigslist has a link on their site to help identify scams that is helpful to review.  Some key things to look for and avoid: poor grammar, pictures that look like stock images/don’t include inside the unit, being asked for a money order or cashier’s check, or renting sight unseen.
