I might be transfering with my job to Castle Rock, and I want to know more about it. I work in retail and I will be making mid teens in pay, what is cost of rent or is there a surrounding area that will be cheaper. Any info on city and rent will be helpful.

Mid teens is going to be hard to pay your bills in Castle Rock, you are looking at needing at least one roommate, and even then it will be tight.

I loved living there, but I think it would be a struggle without a roommate , or two jobs. Not sure on 1bdrm , but when I lived there 2yrs ago I paid 850 for a 2bdrm , you could check just north of Castle Rock , in either Lone Tree or Parker, not sure if they are any cheaper, they are closer to Denver. Check out Rent.com or apartmentguide.com, good luck , hope you can find away to make it , because Castle Rock is a beautiful place and I think you would really like it

I was told my pay will change but they didn't say by how much that will be determined if I live out there. It might be Castle Rock, Colorado Springs, and Fort Collins. I have been to Colorado Springs and loved it for the 3 days I was there. I think will be cheaper of the 3 as well. I am single in the mid 30's male do anywhere I can have a social life will be great.

the springs will be cheaper, I watched a news story the other day that Fort Collins now has an average rent of $1,000 which includes all apartments including lofts and 1 bedrooms. It is out of hand.

there are some apartments that go for about $850 a month, but most of them seem to average a little over $1,000 a month.

Aurora is it's own city, separate from Denver, and larger in geographic size. The areas bordering Denver are a bit sketchy but the southeast areas along toll road 470 are new and excellent. Don't let one out of state whack job scare you off, it could've happened anywhere. Aurora isn't paradise, but it's largely okay. Fear not.
