One-Bedroom Benefits

One-bedroom apartment living comes with a slew of benefits. Since there's typically more square footage than a studio apartment unit, there's more space to spread out or share your quarters. One-bedroom apartments are great for both couples and singles alike. There's plenty of space for one person to set up a place to sleep, a corner to work from home or a small area to workout. It's also still large enough to accommodate the activities of two people both indoors and outside. When impromptu visitors stop by, you can easily hide away clutter from cleaning or organizing your home office material by shutting your bedroom door. At the same time, a 1-bedroom apartment makes it simple to have privacy when your accommodating guests visiting from out-of-town whether you choose to give them your room or have them make themselves at home on your sleeper sofa. One-bedroom apartments often are located in apartment communities that have a myriad of on-site amenities, including a pool, a dog park, and even a gym that gives you access around-the-clock. You can also often live maintenance free, whether you choose to go for a no-patio option or opt for a balcony view since ground maintenance is frequently included in your rent in most Aurora apartment communities.

What's Happening Around Town

There's tons to do in and around Aurora. Aurora offers several recreation options for the outdoor aficionado or art lover alike. You can enjoy the nearby water park during summer months at Del Mar Park in Aurora Hills neighborhood.

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.
