City Guide

Gilbert
"In Arizona, shade trees are your best friends... and occasionally the basis of small civil wars over parking." (-- Terri Guillemets)
"In Arizona, shade trees are your best friends... and occasionally the basis of small civil wars over parking." (-- Terri Guillemets)

With a No. 3 ranking on the City-Data list of top 101 larger cities with the most sunshine per year, Terri Guillemts words have never rang more true. To be blunt, Gilbert is definitely a place that merits a few good pairs of sunglasses. Sunshine isnt the only bright spot of this bustling city of more than 220,000 folks. A high growth rate is on its list of claims to fame, with a population increase of more than 100 percent from 2000 to 2012. Another notable factor for this Maricopa County city is its proximity to the state capital of Phoenix. A sunny place to be, indeed!

Having trouble with Craigslist Gilbert? Can't find that special apartment for rent on Apartment Finder or Zillow? Apartment List is here to help!

Moving to Gilbert

In addition to several pairs of sunglasses, you'll do best in Gilbert by bringing along other sun-happy necessities, such as a sunhat, sunscreen, flip flops and oven mitts for opening your car doors. While the oven-mitt tidbit is largely a joke, your car hood can get hot enough in Gilbert summers to fry an egg, bake a cookie or sear anyone silly enough to attempt to sit on it.

Even though many of the housing units in Gilbert were built in 2000 or later, you'll still have money left over after rent to keep yourself stocked with all those sunny weather necessities. Don't expect to rent a place for too much more than the rest of the state, although your rates can increase from there based on exact location, size and amenities, such as a cool, refreshing swimming pool.

A good place to start your search may be in areas in the southern portion of the city which seem to have more vacancies than its northern cousins. You also want to prepare by gathering proof of income, your current credit report and a few reference letters from past landlords, coworkers and friends that outline what a wonderful, on-time-paying tenant you would be.

Gilbert is stocked with newer homes, which mean you may be treated to two crucial amenities not always found in older Arizona residences: air conditioning and a garage. Even a carport will do, as long as you have something to shield your car from the areas searing sun. Older homes in the southwest often have this thing called a swamp cooler which circulates air and is fine in the proverbial "dry heat" but don't do much when humidity hits during summer rains.

What People Do in Gilbert

Enjoying the sun is a top activity in Gilbert, provided you do it during off-peak hours in the summer. High noon is asking for high risk of dehydration during the summer months where daily high temperatures regularly hit above 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Tolerable winters can more than make up for it, however, with average winter temps typically sticking between 50 and 60 degrees.

If you want to the state capitol a whirl, either for work or play, Phoenix is about 25 miles northwest of Gilbert. You can even ride down U.S. Route 60, also known as Superstition Freeway, with a dandy name stemming from the Superstition Mountains farther east down the road.

Gilbert is also a veritable paradise for desert hiking, thanks to its location near at least 10 generous parklands that are anywhere from 14 to 35 miles away in either direction. A handful of smaller, local parks grace the landscape if you'd prefer to keep it closer to home. As you may have already guessed, hiking and outdoor activities are most comfortable and less deadly in the winter, spring and fall than they are in the Arizona summer.

Wait, so you think all folks do is go to Phoenix or the desert trails? No way. Theres plenty to do in the city proper without even leaving Gilberts borders. There's an A to Z shopping (almost), with a bevy of businesses that range from Ace Hardware to Wendys with Macys, Mens Warehouse and Dairy Queen in between. Additional to-dos include the Hale Centre Theatre, circa 1947, which is the longest privately owned and operated continuously running theater in the country. It has served up close-up, intimate theater performances at least once a week since its opening.

Even a carport will do, as long as you have something to shield your car from the areas searing sun. Older homes in the southwest often have this thing called a swamp cooler which circulates air and is fine in the proverbial "dry heat" but don't do much when humidity hits during summer rains.

Gilbert Neighborhoods

The city of Gilbert stretches across 43 square miles, which offers plenty of elbow room with an average population density of 5,148 people per square mile.

What People Do in Gilbert

Enjoying the sun is a top activity in Gilbert, provided you do it during off-peak hours in the summer. High noon is asking for high risk of dehydration during the summer months where daily high temperatures regularly hit above 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Tolerable winters can more than make up for it, however, with average winter temps typically sticking between 50 and 60 degrees.

If you want to the state capitol a whirl, either for work or play, Phoenix is about 25 miles northwest of Gilbert. You can even ride down U.S. Route 60, also known as Superstition Freeway, with a dandy name stemming from the Superstition Mountains farther east down the road.

Gilbert is also a veritable paradise for desert hiking, thanks to its location near at least 10 generous parklands that are anywhere from 14 to 35 miles away in either direction. A handful of smaller, local parks grace the landscape if you'd prefer to keep it closer to home. As you may have already guessed, hiking and outdoor activities are most comfortable and less deadly in the winter, spring and fall than they are in the Arizona summer.

Wait, so you think all folks do is go to Phoenix or the desert trails? No way. Theres plenty to do in the city proper without even leaving Gilberts borders. There's an A to Z shopping (almost), with a bevy of businesses that range from Ace Hardware to Wendys with Macys, Mens Warehouse and Dairy Queen in between. Additional to-dos include the Hale Centre Theatre, circa 1947, which is the longest privately owned and operated continuously running theater in the country. It has served up close-up, intimate theater performances at least once a week since its opening.

    Methodology - Recent Updates:

    Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

    Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post about the methodology on our blog.

    Methodology:

    Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

    Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

    Read more about our methodology.

    About Rent Reports:

    Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

    We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
