City Guide
Wheat Ridge
Moving to Wheat Ridge

Wheat Ridge is the perfect example of a small city that wants to be a large city while claiming to hold onto its small town status. If that seems contradictory, that's because it is. The best place to see this is when you first move to the city. Moving here is going to cost you and probably be a slightly annoying experience if you are not coming from a major city. As in a major city, you can expect to put together a portfolio. There will be a credit check, background check, security deposits, reference checks and income checks. It's like the TSA, only less efficient. Be sure to have references from your past landlords and employer to speed things up. 

What it Will Cost You can score a nice place for around what it would cost in any nice, rural town. There are plenty of all bills paid apartments for a bit more than the average rental. Plan on deposits for virtually everything including electricity, water, cable, and Internet. If you have pets, be ready to pay a pet deposit on them as well as an additional amount per month on your rent.

Living in Wheat Ridge

Once you get a place to live, this is actually a great little city. Despite the costs of owning a pet, the town is really very dog friendly. There is even an off leash dog park where your furry friend can run and play to his little heart's content. They even offer special gatherings and such for older dogs, deaf dogs, etc.

If you are looking for a community with a lot of activities, you found it. It almost seems as if the primary goal of this city is to get you outside. There are activities of all stripes all year long. Are you an art or music lover? Well there are art displays, concerts and so on in the parks during much of the year. Hiking, biking, and winter sports are encouraged. There is swimming in the summer, a skate park and skiing in the winter. If it is possible to do it outside, this city has figured out a way to pull it off.

When you get sick of the outdoor playtime, consider taking matters into your own hands by looking into the nightlife. You can just save yourself the trouble and head over to Clancy's Irish Pub on W 37th. Good food and plenty of drinks. It's a relaxing place to hang out with your friends, and it's also a great place for dinner. The burgers served here are outstanding as is the shepherd’s pie.

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.
