Best thing would be to get the jobs first (yes, both you and him). Otherwise, not only could you end up blowing your savings for nothing if you still can't get work, but you could end up making a very difficult commute if you do find work but it is out of your neighborhood.

I made the move without a job lined up...30 years ago. I burned through most of my savings even during that time of cheap rents. Jobs were scarce and paid less than the city I had moved from. You are coming when there are more jobs, but rents are crazy high. Either way is a tough combination to make work.

I agree. Rental price is low. You'll need to up it by at least $300.

Your budget is too low for Denver as mentioned above.

The earliest you will be able to secure a location is 60 to 90 days out.

You'll find plenty of places in the Denver metro for less than 1K (see below). Probably best to try and find a private landlord that will be flexible with your situation. In the past when I've moved w/o a job, apartment complexes required 3x the monthly rent times the entire lease term in liquid funds. So, assuming $1K monthly rent: 3 x 1000 = 3000 x 6 mos = $18,000. Finding a server job should be easy. My advice is to find the cheapest apt you can, for the shortest lease term possible. Then hit the ground running with your job search asap.
