Hartford
Apartment Hunting Tips

Commute. It is best to try to find an apartment close to work, especially if your work is around downtown. Bicyclists should look to the eastern edge of downtown, where they can enjoy leisurely rides along the East Coast Greenway, a 3,000 mile bike route that runs from Main to Florida. There are also nice, wide bicycle lanes along Capitol Ave., Zion St., Scarborough Ln., Whitney, and South Whitney. Public transportation is more than sufficient, with local and commuter bus services, as well as a free downtown shuttle.

Downtown. Full of luxury lofts.

Sheldon Charter Oak. The neighborhood that Colt built, complete with the old Colt Firearms Factory, the Colt Estate, the expansive Colt Park and, a statue of the revolver-revolutionary himself, Samuel Colt.

Barry Square. Easily walkable neighborhood.

Frog Hollow. Close proximity to downtown.

Parkville. Featuring the innovatively-alternative-music-laced art space and independent cinema place born out of Hartford's art scene heroes, Real Art Ways.

Overview of Findings

Apartment List has released Hartford's results from the first annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. The survey, which drew on responses from over 18,000 renters, provides new insights into what states and cities must do to meet the needs of the 105 million American renters nationwide.

"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."

Key findings in Hartford include the following:

  • Hartford has the 4th lowest renter satisfaction among 100 cities surveyed and earns an F overall.
  • Just 12% of renters say that Hartford's economy is on the right track while 53% say it's on the wrong track.
  • One category where Hartford scored well is plans for homeownership as 73% of Hartford renters saying they expect to purchase a house or apartment in the future.
  • Connecticut's capital earned a C- for access to recreational activities, with 57% of renters reporting satisfaction with access to parks, community activities, and nightlife.
  • Remarkably, 0% of renters surveyed in Hartford report that they're satisfied with safety and the crime rate.
  • Boston received the highest grade in New England at an A+, while Providence received a B- and 3 Connecticut cities - Hartford, Bridgeport, and New Haven - received F's.
  • The top rated cities nationwide for city satisfaction were Plano, TX; Boston, MA; Arlington, VA; Austin, TX; and Torrance, CA. The lowest rated cities were Newark, NJ; New Haven, CT; Bridgeport, CT; Hartford, CT; and Columbia, SC.
