Why Live In Colorado

Why Live In Colorado

The real estate market is booming, we all witnessed the enormous economic downturn in 2008 and its effect on homes. However from 2008 to 2013 Colorado homes have actually appreciated 7.63%. Homes are flying off the market with multiple offers coming in on the same day, there’s no question Colorado homes are in high demand but why Colorado?  

If you have ever been to Colorado there is probably no reason to explain why this state is so amazing. From the beautiful scenery to the heart pounding night life, Colorado offers everything that you could possibly ask for.  

1)    Growth - Based on Forbes, Denver Colorado is now ranked 6th fastest growing city in America. Greeley Colorado is also ranked 2nd fastest growing city in the nation, by Yahoo. With an estimated population of 5.2 million people in 2013 it is predicted that by the year 2040, roughly 7.7 million people will live in Colorado. The Denver-Boulder area is expected to have an increase of nearly a million people, while the population in Larimer and Weld County is predicted to almost double to 1.054 million. 

Health - Denver is not called the mile high city for nothing, Colorado is ranked as the 6th healthiest state with the lowest obesity rate in the nation. Denver is also ranked the 5th fittest city in the country. Not to mention out of the 68 mountains that are over 14,000 feet in the US, 54 of them are located in Colorado. Working out and staying healthy aren’t simple hobbies, it's a way of life for Coloradoans.

Climate - The climate in Colorado is something to admire on its own, with over 300 days of sunshine every year, it's not out of the ordinary for locals to go skiing in the morning and play a round of golf in the afternoon. With over 9000 feet of elevation gain available in Colorado, it allows for snowy winters in the mountains and sunny dry conditions at lower elevations. What more could you ask for?

Scenery - The breath taking scenery in Colorado is something of another world. Offering areas such as Estes Park and Maroon Bells there are countless numbers of jaw dropping views. Some other iconic areas; Red Rocks amphitheater, Garden of the Gods, The Royal Gorge, Hanging Lakes, Steamboat Rock the list simply goes on and on. There's nothing that you can’t find in Colorado. It should be known as the "Wonder of America" 

I could sit here and talk about how wonderful Colorado is for days, but what good does that really do? For your next vacation, I urge you to come out and explore this wonderful state and witness everything it can offer you first hand. And if you already live in this amazing state go explore, there’s always something new to do out there.
