This is What Makes a Luxury Home in Colorado

By Buying

How do Colorado home buyers define a “luxury” home? It’s not always straightforward.

The biggest deciding factor is location. Some neighborhoods, like Cherry Hills Village, carry the “luxury” label as a community. Homes within a luxury neighborhood are often lumped into the same category.

But when looking at an individual home, what are the details that make a luxury home rise above the rest? We asked 22,000 local real estate agents to share their expertise. Here’s what they said about luxury homes in Colorado:

The Right Finishes

Granite, hardwood flooring, large bedrooms with separate baths, wine cellars, decorative moldings, and the neighborhood.

High Quality Craftsmanship

In the luxury market, I see an emphasis on high quality materials and craftsmanship in kitchen and baths. Steam showers, custom lighting, cabinets made of exotic wood, professional ranges, separate refrigerator and freezer.
