March 2019 Thornton Rent Report

Welcome to the March 2019 Thornton Rent Report. Thornton rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Thornton rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Currently, median rents in Thornton stand at $1,490 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,890 for a two-bedroom. Thornton's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 2.3%, as well as the national average of 0.9%.

    Rents rising across the Denver Metro

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Thornton, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Denver metro, 8 of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

    • Over the past year, Parker has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 3.5%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $1,760, while one-bedrooms go for $1,390.
    • Denver proper has the least expensive rents in the Denver metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,340; rents grew 0.1% over the past month and 2.4% over the past year.
    • Thornton has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Denver metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,890; rents were up 0.3% over the past month and 6.8% over the past year.

    As rents have increased sharply in Thornton, a few large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly. Compared to most large cities across the country, Thornton is less affordable for renters.

    • Rents increased moderately in other cities across the state, with Colorado as a whole logging rent growth of 2.3% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 2.6% in Fort Collins and 2.0% in Colorado Springs.
    • Thornton's median two-bedroom rent of $1,890 is above the national average of $1,170. Nationwide, rents have grown by 0.9% over the past year compared to the 6.8% rise in Thornton.
    • While Thornton's rents rose sharply over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.6%), Austin (+3.1%), and Charlotte (+3.0%).
    • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Thornton than most large cities. For example, Phoenix has a median 2BR rent of $1,070, where Thornton is more than one-and-a-half times that price.

    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.
