The U.S. Renter Confidence Survey that was published on apartmentlist.com showed that Colorado Springs received a C+ for overall city satisfaction. Colorado Springs fell behind Denver, which received an A and was listed No. 15, and Englewood, which received a B+ and was ranked No. 33.
Colorado Springs also received a C for confidence in the local economy, an A- in plans for homeownership, a C in safety and crime rate, a C+ in access to recreational activities, a C+ in quality of schools, an F in satisfaction with daily commute and a C- in state and local taxes.

To compile the study, Apartment List surveyed 18,675 renters in the U.S., asking questions about renter plans for homeownership and overall satisfaction with the cities in which they live. The company then evaluated each of the cities against each other using multiple metrics, according to the survey.
