What’s the Deal with Thornton?

Thornton is one of Denver’s northern suburbs. In fact, the mile high city is just a hop, skip and a drive down Interstate 25, so a good deal of Thornton’s residents are commuters. Whether you’ll be one of them or not, you’re still gonna need wheels - hey, these are the suburbs, remember? The city itself is heavily residential but all of the creature comforts such as dining and shopping are scattered around generously, so no matter where you end up putting down stakes everything you’ll need will be well within reach.

Thornton's got somewhat of a random checkerboard layout, with malls next to vacant lots next to homes next to apartments. So look around, make sure your apartment's in a neighborhood with some walkable paths or sidewalks as you'll likely want to get outside in the sunshine and enjoy the Colorado mountain views! Both paths and views abound in Thornton, and even in the dead of winter, you'll find plenty of sunny days.

Choosing Sides

NoTho: Consisting mostly of newer sprawling residential neighborhoods. Most of the rentals you’ll find here are of the brand-spankin’ new “apartment home” ilk that come loaded with all the bells and whistles. Think granite countertops, resort-style swimming pools and fitness centers. Of course, they’re not “cheap” per-se, but they’re sure a lot less than comparable units in the Mile High City. Way out in the outskirts of town, you can still find the odd trailer or mobile home for rent if that’s more your thing.

SoTho: South Thornton is a bargain-hunter’s paradise. Small 1960’s tract homes in pleasant neighborhoods and revamped patio-style apartments make up the bulk of vacancies in this area and there are still plenty of deals to be had for would-be renters.

That concludes our brief tour of Thornton. Whether you end up on the south side of town or the north, residents-to-be should rest assured they’ll be paying less and getting more than they would in Denver. Why not put all that rent money you’ll be saving to good use - like a season pass to Breckenridge or Winter Park?

    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 about the methodology on our blog.

    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.

    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.

    January 2021 Thornton Rent Report

    Welcome to the January 2021 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 decline sharply over the past month

    Thornton rents have declined 0.9% over the past month, but have increased moderately by 2.5% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Thornton stand at $1,480 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,678 for a two-bedroom. Thornton's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of -1.6%, as well as the national average of -1.5%.

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

      • Lone Tree has the most expensive rents in the Denver metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,066; the city has also seen rent growth of 1.1% over the past month, the fastest in the metro.
      • Over the past year, Denver proper has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 5.3%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $1,536, while one-bedrooms go for $1,254.
      • Arvada has the least expensive rents in the Denver metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,428; rents decreased 0.3% over the past month but were up 0.5% over the past year.

      Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Thornton

      As rents have increased moderately in Thornton, other large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Compared to most large cities across the country, Thornton is less affordable for renters.

      • With cities across the state seeing rents both rising and falling, Colorado as a whole has logged -1.6% year-over-year decline. For example, rents have grown by 4.8% in Colorado Springs whereas rents have fallen 2.5% in Fort Collins.
      • Thornton's median two-bedroom rent of $1,678 is above the national average of $1,090. Nationwide, rents have fallen by 1.5% over the past year compared to the 2.5% increase in Thornton.
      • While Thornton's rents rose moderately over the past year, the city of Phoenix also saw an increase of 4.2%.
      • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Thornton than most large cities. For example, Phoenix has a median 2BR rent of $1,161, where Thornton is nearly one-and-a-half times that price.
