February 2019 Thornton Rent Report

Welcome to the February 2019 Thornton Rent Report. Thornton rents declined 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.

Thornton rents held steady over the past month

Thornton rents have declined 0.1% over the past month, but are up sharply by 6.8% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Thornton stand at $1,490 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,880 for a two-bedroom. Thornton's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 2.4%, as well as the national average of 1.0%.

    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, 9 of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

    • Brighton has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 18.0%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,820, while one-bedrooms go for $1,430.
    • Over the past year, Parker is the only city in the metro that has seen rents fall, with a decline of 3.0%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $1,750, while one-bedrooms go for $1,380.
    • Thornton has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Denver metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,880; rents fell 0.1% over the past month but rose 6.8% over the past year.
    • Denver proper has the least expensive rents in the Denver metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,340; rents were up 2.5% over the past year but remained flat month-over-month.

    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.

    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.
