If you haven’t considered buying land in Colorado, you should. This state is gorgeous, green, and growing. Colorado has plenty of compelling reasons to live or vacation here – especially if you’re looking for a good real estate investment. These are some of our favorite.
Colorado has 20 alpine ski resorts. That’s more than any other state in the country. Even for non-skiers, there are plenty of other outdoor activities to be had at a resort, not to mention a quaint, resort-town feel with boutique shops and lots of hot chocolate and iced tea. Then there’s Grand Mesa, the Mile-High City of Denver, and Wild West history. The result? Colorado attracts a lot of visitors!
Real Estate Market in Colorado
Many mountain towns have experienced record-breaking real estate sales, and those in Colorado are no different. These estates make great vacation homes, rental investments, and primary residences – a fact that’s reflected in the thriving real estate market. The downside is that some communities are now limiting the size of homes built and lot sizes to be able to satisfy demand for homes in the area. Often, this makes purchasing existing real estate a better choice than building.
While every area in Colorado is different, studies show that overall taxes are lower than the national average – especially when it comes to homesteading taxes. This means owners of luxury real estate who choose to live in the state will get a better deal in the long-term.
Quality of Life
Of all states, Colorado has been ranked 7th for quality of life. The average Colorado resident is healthier, more educated, and more active than the average American. That might have something to do with the strong economy – ranked 8th in the country in the same study – or it may have something to do with having the perfect combination of nature and convenience available throughout the state.
Exquisite Real Estate
As a playground to the rich and famous, it’s no surprise that Colorado has some spectacular real estate. Still, Mad Dog Ranch is a cut above the rest. 240 acres of irrigated pastures, woodlands, stunning mountain vistas, and manicured gardens are just the beginning. The beautiful English Tudor manor flawlessly combines elegance and comfort in its chef’s kitchen, huge wrap-around terrace, and luxurious master suite – not to mention the billiards/game room, library, gym, and formal and casual dining spaces. Fine details like cherry paneling, custom inlaid marble floors and soaring cathedral windows offer a refinement that rivals the natural beauty outside.
