FOR THE THIRD YEAR IN A ROW, analysts at SmartAsset.com pegged Boulder as the #1 real estate market for growth and stability in the U.S. Their research shows that since 1992, home prices grew 314%. During that time, home prices never once saw a decline of more than 5% in Boulder - not even during the national foreclosure crisis. That stability means homeowners in Boulder have been spared the stress of depreciation, while reaping the benefits of price appreciation. Colorado's Front Range showed strength across the board, with Fort Collins moving from #6 to #3 since last year, and Denver going from #9 to #8. Read the full report.
