Renter's Guide to Glendale

Welcome to Glendale!

Historic, beautiful, and centrally located, “Arizona's Antique Capital” is just nine miles from Phoenix, the sixth-largest city in the US. Home to college football's annual Fiesta Bowl, Glendale is 10 times smaller than Phoenix, though it's plenty big in its own right.

Glendale's a little on the steamy side, with average June and July temperatures of around 100°F and about 294 sunny days per year. The city doesn't get much rain either – only about 9 inches per year, to be precise.

The dry weather makes for numerous excuses to visit Glendale’s many parks, which helped earn the city a spot as the 55th best city in the U.S. for parks from the Trust for Public Land. It’s also the 30th best city in the nation for recreation, according to WalletHub.

All of those recreation options, combined with its weather, quality of health care, and affordable housing, makes Glendale one of the top places in the country to retire. And it's within 30 miles of Scottsdale, Mesa, and Tempe, which couldn't be more convenient.

    Tips for Renting in Glendale

    Ready to relocate? Before you start packing, let's take a second to review the tenant laws in Glendale.

    Renters rights in Glendale follow the state laws of Arizona. One of these laws requires landlords to provide basic essential utilities – including air conditioning.

    If a landlord fails to do so, they can be held in breach of contract, and the tenant has the option to arrange for repairs themselves and deduct the costs from their rent. Or tenants can rent a hotel room until the problem is fixed, and the landlord will be responsible for the hotel bill.

    When moving in, your landlord can only charge the equivalent of a month-and-a-half’s rent as a security deposit. And when you move out, the landlord must return the deposit within 14 days, unless there was damage to the property.

    Renting a studio apartment in Glendale, AZ

    The bad news is that the hip neighborhoods are typically not the places to look for truly affordable homes for rent, and Glendale, AZ is no exception. That is unless you are willing to give up the (real or imagined) benefits of multiple rooms and experience the minimalist simplicity of a small apartment located smack dab in the middle of the action. Leaf through 25 listings with a total of 143 units, and you’ll be sure to find at least a couple of cheap studios that will make you wonder whether having one or two extra rooms is really worth the difference in price and commute time. Already a fan of living small? Why don’t you check out our selection of one room apartments—there’s always a better deal out there, you just have to know where to look for it (Bethany Heights is the cheapest neighborhood in town—wink wink).

    They are called efficiency apartments for a reason

    In case you’re still wondering, the time and effort put into finding an efficiency apartment does pay off. Literally, and pretty fast too. The Glendale, AZ average rent is currently at $1,248, but a single-bedroom apartment in Glendale, AZ can be yours for as low as $540 per month. While the cheapest bachelor units normally have a small bath and one bigger, multifunctional space (meaning that the hall and the kitchen in the main room, basically), you don’t need to have that if it’s not your thing. You can find plenty of one-room apartments in Glendale, AZ with a separate kitchen. These are still well under the price of an apartment with multiple rooms, but slightly more expensive than your average studio, so it’s a good idea to aim for the higher end of the price range. The currently the most expensive studio apartment in Glendale, AZ costs a monthly $4,022.
