This will come as absolutely no shock at all to Boulder residents. We have the highest average home prices in Colorado, according to a report recently released by Coldwell Banker Real Estate.
The report examines 26 real estate markets in Colorado, and ranks them accordingly. Coldwell also ranks average home prices in over 2,000 other U.S. markets.
Boulder came in at number one in Colorado with an average home price of $929,496. Boulder County towns also ranked well, with Longmont at number 10 (average home price of $505,080) and Lafayette at number 11 ($505,018).
What about ski resort towns like Aspen and Vail, you may be asking. It’s not clear, but the ranking price used in the report is for four-bedroom, two-bathroom homes, which may not fit the inventory you’ll find in the ski areas.
For the entire nation, 11 cities in California hold the top respective spots. This may be another reason beyond the tech industry why so many Californians are flocking to Colorado — it’s relatively affordable.
And let’s not moan too much, because we do live in an amazing place, and amazing places are expensive. Detroit (average home price $64,110) and Cleveland (average home price $73,073) are affordable, but I think I’ll stay put.
Don’t forget that you can use our real estate search tool to monitor homes on the market in Boulder, the surrounding towns in Boulder County, and even other parts of Colorado. The right home for you may be waiting!
