City Guide
Arvada
Finding an Arvada Apartment

If you're looking to get a nice apartment in Arvada, you need to get on the ball. As in, yesterday. Renters make up about 30% of all citizens in the city, but only 4% of the apartments and homes in Arvada are unoccupied. This means that if you find a place to stay, you need to jump on it. And since rental prices aren't really too high or low, a good apartment can disappear in a heartbeat.

How much will it cost?

The great thing about Arvada is that most areas are amazing for their prices. Sure, the rent is a little higher than some areas, but really, you're pretty much getting a great deal. The median rent in the town is a little above the national average, but as with any area, this amount will fluctuate depending on how luxurious you want to go.

What you need

Come on... with only a 4% vacancy rate, you're going to need plenty. You'll definitely end up paying an application fee from the start and an administrative fee if you get the place. The application fee will likely cover any credit check the landlord decides to run This means it never hurts to drop the $10 to $15 needed to bring get a background check and bring it along. Make sure to bring your references and a letter of employment as well.

Arvada Neighborhoods

Arlington Square: Arlington is a quaint little neighborhood in the Arvada area. Elvis Cinemas is right smack dab in the middle of the neighborhood.

Arlington Meadows: The population density of this neighborhood is much lower than Arvada in general. The Jim Baker Reservoir is nearby, where you can go fishing.

Northridge: It's a pricier neighborhood, but definitely worth checking out.

Jesuit Gardens: Jesuit Gardens is located right near the intersections of I-76 and I-70. Not too far off is the intersection of I-70 and I-25, so you can literally get just about anywhere from this neighborhood. There's a golf course and baseball field.

Lakeshore: Berkeley Lake, Rocky Mountain Lake Park, and several other chances for fun activities are nearby.

Living the Arvada Life

Festivals galore!

The use of the word "galore" implies a great abundance, and in this case, there's not a bit of exaggeration going on. The city has a Festivals Commission for crying out loud. There are literally 8 different annual festivals. For those who want to fill the sky with color, there's the Kite Festival. Also, there's the Holiday Wine Tasting Festival, and The Chocolate Affair.

Getting around

Getting around is a breeze in Arvada. There are a ton of bike lanes, multi-use paths, and shared lanes throughout the city. Okay, okay... plenty of cities have these things, but honestly, just look it up. The League of American Bicyclists gave Arvada the award for Bronze Level Bike Friendly City. Astounding, right? Who would've thought there was any such thing as the League of American Bicyclists?

Arvada also boasts four express bus routes, seven local routes, and even a regional bus route. Get there quick though! By 2015 the city plans on having a commuter rail fully complete that goes alongside the historic Colorado Central Railroad.

Living the high life

Those who enjoy a bit of nightlife might wonder what there is to do in Arvada. Seriously? It's literally 20 minutes from Denver. But if you've absolutely got to find a place inside town, you can check out jazz performances at El Chapultepec; and yes, that's spelled correctly. Jazz not your thing? Well the Grizzly Rose and a host of other clubs, bars and taverns fill up this often vibrant town situated serenely amongst the Rockies. Sounds majestic, doesn't it?

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.

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 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.

Overview of Findings

Apartment List has released Arvada's results from the first annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. The survey, which drew on responses from over 18,000 renters, provides new insights into what states and cities must do to meet the needs of the 105 million American renters nationwide.

"Arvada renters are generally unsatisfied, but express considerable confidence in the economy," says Andrew Tam, Vice President of Data Science at Apartment List. "The US renter population is at its highest level in 20 years, and although renters give Arvada's economy high marks, dissatisfaction with other factors makes it a less appealing place for this large demographic."

Key findings in Arvada include the following:

  • Arvada renters give their city a C+ overall. This puts Arvada at 61st place out of 100 cities nationwide.
  • The city's highest grade is an A+ for economy, with 45% of renters saying that it's on the right track, and only 25% saying it is on the wrong track.
  • Arvada earned a B in plans for homeownership, with 60% of respondents saying they plan to purchase an apartment or home in the future.
  • In addition to ranking well for confidence in the economy, Arvada earned an A for state and local taxes, with 50% of respondents saying they're satisfied.
  • Arvada received a C- for both schools and commute length.
  • The survey covered a total of 5 Colorado cities. Denver led with an overall satisfaction score of A. Englewood received a B+, followed by Colorado Springs (C+), Arvada (C+), and Aurora (D).
  • The top rated cities nationwide for city satisfaction were Plano, TX; Boston, MA; Arlington, VA; Austin, TX; and Torrance, CA. The lowest rated cities were Newark, NJ; New Haven, CT; Bridgeport, CT; Hartford, CT; and Columbia, SC.
