Overview of Glendale
Apartments and rentals are abundant in Glendale, AZ, a suburban city in the Phoenix metropolitan area. Just nine miles from downtown Phoenix, in the Valley of the Sun, Glendale is a spunky and historical city in its own right.
Living in Glendale, AZ
In 1880 William J. Murphy and three Arizona builders looked at the empty Sonoran Desert that is now Glendale and saw possibilities. They formed the Arizona Canal Co. and launched a project to bring water to the desert. It took five years, 225 mules and whatever tools they could find to complete the canal. Soon after, the water lured early settlers. One of the first was William H. Bartlett who started a 640-acre fruit farm in 1886 that became known as Sahuaro Ranch. It still exists today, listed on the National Register of Historic Places and open to the public. In fact, Glendale has protected many of its historic homes and buildings.
Like many cities, the real growth began with World War II , the construction of air fields to train pilots for the military, and the influx of military men and their families. Thereafter, Glendale's growth paralleled Phoenix to the south. Primarily, it serves as a bedroom community to that larger city. Yet in the last decade, it has become a hub for professional sports in the metro area with Jobing.com Arena and the University of Phoenix Stadium.
The Glendale of today has a population of more than 226,000. Popular neighborhood districts in Glendale include: Ocotillo, Cactus, Sahuaro, Yucca, West Glenn Estates, Horizons West and Cholla.

Glendale Cost of Living
Compared to the rest of the country, Glendale's cost of living is just slightly above average, and possibly a bit less than other neighborhoods in metro Phoenix.

Two-bedrooms start at around $450 but again, are more commonly priced at $675 to $750. Prices vary, of course, by location, size and amenities available. You can also select from condos, townhomes and single-family homes for rent in Glendale.
