What Renters Say about Hartford


Apartment List has released the results for Hartford from the third annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. This survey, which drew on responses from over 45,000 renters nationwide, provides insight on what states and cities must do to meet the needs of the country’s 111 million renters.
"Hartford renters are extremely unsatisfied overall and give it low scores in almost every category," says Andrew Tam, Vice President of Data Science at Apartment List. "The US renter population is at its highest level in 20 years, and concerns about Hartford's crime rate and relatively weak economy make it a much less appealing city for this important demographic."
