City Guide
Denton
Neighborhoods:

Denton is comprised of historic areas and suburban neighborhoods. Depending on your lifestyle, or the lifestyle you’d prefer, there is a neighborhood that’s tailored for you. Feast your eyes on some of the best areas Denton has to offer.

Rayzor’s Ranch: Sitting on 400 acres of property, Rayzor’s Ranch is Denton’s take on the classic American neighborhood. Medical offices, a marketplace, and a town center coexist with apartments, villages, cottages, and brownstones to make up a virtual city inside of a city (insert Inception joke here). Because it is located on corners of the southeast I-35 and U.S. 380, the Ranch offers an easy commute into Dallas for work or weekend trips.

Lake Dallas/Hickory Creek: This area offers a ton of single-family homes (three to four bedrooms) and newer, luxury apartments. If driving through the area isn’t enough to convince you, perhaps the apartment amenities will be. Some apartments around here offer things like private concierge service, hot tubs and free personal trainers. It’s also close to the I-35E, I-35W and Highways 77 and 288 making your commute to work, airport and the mall a total breeze.

Carter: Made up of single family homes and apartment complexes, This area is very popular with renters, partly due to its cultural offerings: A walking-friendly, vibrant music scene, and outdoor activities.

Downtown Denton: Past and present meet in Downtown Denton. Amidst historic sites, such as the Denton County Courthouse (built in the 1800s), sit newer boutiques and eateries. Living here, you will never be bored. Whether it’s a Jazz festival, movie on the lawn or an art show, there is ALWAYS something happening downtown. The houses here are diverse, an eclectic mix of old and new and apartments for rent are plentiful with a wide range of prices and sizes. No matter the cost, this location cannot be beat as it offers a wonderful hybrid of culture and convenience, most apartments sitting about three blocks from the downtown transit stop.

Shady Shores: A suburban area located on a lake. Don’t let the name fool you- this area is defined by it’s nice single-family homes, condos, and apartments. The commute from this area isn’t so bad either, as it sits just off of I-35. Those looking for a little serenity will enjoy living here because of its laid-back feel. It also doesn’t hurt that it features a jogging trail.

Denton Quick Facts:
  • Living here often fine-tunes your love of music. If you are already a music lover, this move is ideal for you. If you aren’t but keep an open mind, Denton is about to rock your world (pun most definitely intended). After all, it was once home to Norah Jones and Don Henley, each of which has a little thing called a Grammy.

  • Pets are welcome in almost all of Denton, TX rental communities.

  • Transportation: Texas Traffic at its Busiest**

If one thing about Denton lives up to the Texas lore, it’s the traffic, as congestion and commute times are bigger here than in most cities. This is due to the fact that many Denton residents make their way into Dallas for work. For traffic relief, residents with a penchant for public transit can sit pretty on one of Denton’s coach services, local bus services or commuter rails.

People have been flocking to Denton by the masses in recent years and it is easy to see why. Thanks to its eclectic music scene, small town-feel and not-so-typical vibe, Denton is miles from ordinary and ready for your arrival. Lets get hunting!

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.
