Stamford, Connecticut
Stamford, Connecticut

Stamford isn't exactly a big city, but it has quite a large population, 122,643 according to the 2010 census- a true testament to the draw of the place. The weather in Stamford is quite stable, with a high of 73.2 degrees in July, and 30.9 in February. With that in mind, let us proceed to the little details of moving to this city.

Having trouble with Craigslist Stamford? Can't find that special apartment for rent on Apartment Finder or Zillow? Apartment List is here to help!

First Priorities

Check your bank account to ensure that you have enough money to cover the security deposit, and at the very least, the first month’s rent. Your landlord will almost certainly require these items, in addition to running a background check, a credit check, and possibly, asking for a reference or two. Make sure these little details are in order before setting out on your search for apartments in Stanford. If your credit is bad, you might need a guarantor or consignee with good credit to help you secure an apartment.

Make a List, Check it Twice

Before you hit the road in your search for rental properties, create a list of the essentials you will expect in your new apartment. The vacancy rate for rental homes in Stamford is only 4%, meaning the competition for really good apartments will be high. Creating a list of the things that matter the most to you will help you make the right decision when you finally find an apartment that looks just right. More than likely, you might not find an apartment with all of the qualities you have listed, but one that has most of your requirements will work just fine. As an added benefit, this list will help your real estate agent (if you are using one) narrow down the search for your ideal apartment.

Put in Some Legwork Don’t rely only on the listings you find online. If you can, drive around to see if you can find some of those hidden gems the landlords did not place on online real estate websites. Sometimes, by asking around, you might score that perfect place.

    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.

    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.
