With rent constantly on the rise, the good news is that according to a new report from Apartment List, renters are extremely satisfied with the state of Colorado, as well as with the city of Denver.

Colorado ranked 4th for renter confidence, receiving high marks for city satisfaction, and Denver ranked 15th out of the 100 cities analyzed. Denver was also one of only 10 cities that received an “A” grade overall.

Apartment List surveyed 18,675 renters across the country, asking questions such as:

  1. On a scale of 1 to 10, how likely are you to recommend your current city or neighborhood to a friend or family member, with 1 being extremely unlikely and 10 being extremely likely?
  1. In the future, which of the following is closest to your plans: A. I expect to always rent, B. I plan to eventually buy a house or apartment, or C. I’m unsure.
  1. Do you feel that your local economy is on the right track?

Here was Denver’s score:

A- for confidence in the economy

B+ for home ownership plans

A- for safety and crime rates

A for satisfaction with daily commute

B- for quality of schools

B+ for access to recreational activities

B for state and local taxes
