|Colorado Real Estate - The Rocky Mountains
By Raynor James
Colorado is the land of the Rocky Mountains and all that comes with it. Located in the foothills, Denver is
the central location for Colorado real estate.
A state dominated by mountains, Colorado is a popular relocation spot for outdoors enthusiasts. The
state offers skiing, hiking, rock climbing, fishing, camping and other activities in the mountains in
combination with big city sophistication in Denver. A beautiful state, Colorado experiences the full effect
of the four season of spring, summer, fall and winter.
Located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Denver is a modern metropolis and is growing.
Undergoing serious redevelopment, Denver has sprouted a new sophistication with a lively night scene,
strong cultural feel and big city sports teams. With a population approaching two million, the Mile High
City is experiencing significant growth and is starting to experience the negative aspects of too many

appearance. The town is such a pleasant place to live, many have tried to relocate there causing high
real estate prices. With the liberal attitude typical of a college town, Boulder is pricey but an absolutely
great place to live.
One of many ski resort areas in Colorado, Steamboat Springs is a personal favorite. Originally a
ranching town, Steamboat Springs has a definite western atmosphere complete with Cowboy poetry

stunning in the winter. In summer, flowers bloom and hiking, mountain biking, camping, fishing, bird
watching and practically any outdoor activities are readily available. An absolutely great place to live.
Colorado Real Estate
Colorado is one of the more popular relocation destinations in the United States. Californians, in
particular, seem to be flocking to the state to escape the crowds and outrageous costs of living in
California. One of the keys to getting a good deal in Colorado is to look just outside of centralized
locations. You can easily find real estate at a thirty or forty percent discount as little as five miles out of
Colorado real estate prices are highly dependent on the location. Denver is reasonable with prices
averaging $325,000 for a single-family residence, while the same home in Boulder will cost you an
additional $200,000. Move up into the mountains and you can expect prices to do the same.
The Colorado real estate marketing is currently undergoing a bit of a consolidation process. For 2005,
appreciation rates have been a relatively low six percent on average.
