Boulder Tops for Growth & Stability
FOR THE FOURTH YEAR IN A ROW, analysts at SmartAsset.com pegged the Boulder Metro Area (Boulder County) as the #1 real estate market for growth and stability in the U.S. Their research shows that the average home has grown 276% in value over the past 25 years. Over that same time period, they estimate there was a 0% chance that a homeowner saw a 5% loss in home value within 10 years from the purchase date. Colorado's Front Range showed strength across the board, with Fort Collins ranking at #4 and Denver ranking at #9. Read the full report.
Current stats show that appreciation is slowing in Boulder County, going from an average 12.5% annually over the last 5 years, to 8.25% in the last year. This leveling off feels healthy to me. Again, ours is the most stable real estate market in the country!
