Supply is the main problem. But don't get discouraged. A lot of the young set are very mobile. Get on a list as soon as you can.
And good luck!

You might want to contact DenverRentals.com TYhey may be able to work with you in your special situation. Also put a request out on Craigslist.com, but be very careful with the responses. There are some rental scammers working the Denver area right now.
I used to work in property management and there are a lot of apartment communities that now will just require an additional deposit when you apply for the apartment. At my community, it was generally equal to one month's rent and would be reimbursed upon move out! I would call communities that you two are interested in before touring to ensure that this is something that they do!
I hope that helps and 'Welcome to Denver!'
