Glendale, AZ Neighborhoods

Glendale is broken down into 6 districts, each with their own individual spirit. The housing here is just as diverse as the population and its residents have a wide range of options available to fit every need and tickle every fancy.

Barrel District: Apartment homes and condos are as abundant as the cacti around this part of Glendale. A cost efficient part of town, the Barrel is full of parks, golf courses and outdoor space for you to run, stretch, play, and generally do all those things you tell yourself you’ll do to work off the triple-decker burger you just ate in order to rationalize the fact that you just ate a triple-decker burger. Barrel is the most central district in Glendale, making it an ideal location for those who are moving to retire or who like to spend their weekends on the putting green. Apartments here can start as low as $395 (one bedroom) and homes here range from one level to split level and typically feature moderately-sized backyards.

Yucca District: This is where you’ll find downtown Glendale and Westgate- the shopping, sports, business and tourist area of the city. It’s the largest district in here, so naturally your living arrangement options are pretty open. If you’re looking to drop a few dollars (By “few,” of course, we mean “many”), there are new luxury apartments just minutes from Phoenix; but if you’re looking to snag an older home with some character and charm in historic downtown Glendale, you have a ton of options as well. You’ll have access to entertainment and the 101 for an easy commute, making the area ideal for college students (proximity to University of Phoenix), young working professionals, sports fans and those who think they’re still hip enough for that downtown vibe.

Ocotillo District: The heart of old Glendale is located in Ocotillo, as well as many residential neighborhoods like Rancho Viejo, Fairview crossing (newer homes) and Orchard Glen. Housing here is mostly comprised of single-family homes, townhomes and apartments, so (big surprise) your housing options are wide. The cost of living here is pretty moderate.

Cholla District: A true suburban neck of the woods, er, desert, the Cholla district is filled with nice, quiet communities. Apartments here tend to offer residents a bit of luxury living, but there are also plenty of options for those looking to pinch a penny or two. The homes are also a bit larger for single-family homes and also a bit newer, like, 80s and 90s new. Don't fret though, these homes don’t look like the architectural equivalent of Color Me Badd (Unless, you know, you’re into that sort of thing).

Cactus District: If you were one of the people we said would fit perfectly in the downtown area (young professionals, college students and sports fans) but can’t afford to live there, you should consider the Cactus. We’re talking about the Cactus district’s offering of accessibility to downtown without the price tag or busyness. The neighborhoods are a good option for the single man or woman who plans to relocate on their own. Additionally, because this district borders the Barrel, Ocotillo and Yucca, residents can take advantage of the parks, nightlife and activities that every part of Glendale has to offer.

Sahuaro District: Located right near the Loop 101 for easy commuting access, this district features many single-family homes and condos perfect for, well, single families and condo-dwellers. One thing to note about these homes is that while the yards are large (though not “in charge,” as the saying suggests), they are often covered in pebbles rather than lawn due to the dry climate. If you can find a rental home with a big green lawn, you have hit the Glendale jackpot. The area is extremely residential and a great spot for those relocating.

Some apartments include most or all of your utilities in the cost of the apartment rental, essentially saving you the trouble of paying for water (for the lawn) and electricity (for the cool air that is subsequently relocated to/around your face). Because of the weather (hot, in case you forgot that this is a desert), outdoor activity is huge in Glendale and many of the apartment communities offer sundecks, outdoor grilling areas and pools.

No need for a horse with no name (Transportation):

Glendale drivers are reliant on Interstate 17, 10, Loops 101 and 303 to get them from point A to point B. These highways connect to nearby cities such as Phoenix and Peoria. For the most part, Loop 101 can bring you to major points in the city such as Westgate and the airport. Those looking for a little carpool action can take advantage of the HOV lane on their commute to downtown Glendale. Residents who are keener on owning a bus pass than a Buick (we can see why) can take advantage of Glendale’s bus systems. These give you a convenient way to get around the area, as well as connect you with light rail stations, which are also spread out through the Glendale area.

218,000 people can’t be wrong:

Life in Glendale is all about activity. Bike paths, art fairs and sporting events are just some of the things this desert city has in store; but the festivals are what really make Glendale stand out. At certain times of the year, residents can treat themselves to holiday festivals (Glendale Glitters in downtown Glendale), the Glendale Chocolate Festival (in February) and the Annual Glendale Jazz and Blues Festival. This city is committed to bringing communities and residents together. Trust that this Arizona town is no mirage. As home to major sports teams and with a reputation as “Arizona’s Antique Capital” – living in Glendale is about truly living. Now’s your chance to see what all the hubbub is about. Get out there, and happy hunting!

October 2018 Glendale Rent Report

Welcome to the October 2018 Glendale Rent Report. Glendale rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Glendale rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Glendale rents increased significantly over the past month

Glendale rents have increased 0.4% over the past month, and are up moderately by 3.0% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Glendale stand at $910 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,130 for a two-bedroom. This is the ninth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in December of last year. Glendale's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 2.2%, as well as the national average of 0.9%.

Rents rising across the Phoenix Metro

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Glendale, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Phoenix metro, all of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

  • Peoria has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 4.2%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,400, while one-bedrooms go for $1,130.
  • Phoenix proper has the least expensive rents in the Phoenix metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,050; rents were up 0.2% over the past month and 2.6% over the past year.

Glendale rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

As rents have increased moderately in Glendale, a few large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Glendale is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Rents increased slightly in other cities across the state, with Arizona as a whole logging rent growth of 2.2% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 1.1% in Tucson.
  • Glendale's median two-bedroom rent of $1,130 is slightly below the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 0.9% over the past year compared to the 3.0% rise in Glendale.
  • While Glendale's rents rose moderately over the past year, the city of Seattle saw a decrease of 1.6%.
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Glendale than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,110, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Glendale.

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 here.


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 here.

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.
