The influx of new Colorado residents is not isolated to the City of Denver. In fact, 9NEWS recently reported that Broomfield County was the fifth fastest growing country in the country between 2014-2015, growing at a 5.2 percent speed—and we know that other Denver area suburbs are experiencing fantastic growth, as well.
But which Suburb is the “hottest,” according to local real estate experts? We decided to ask our network of more than 18,000 local brokers and REALTORS® throughout Colorado. Here are the top responses we received:
“Olde Town Arvada would be my choice. First, location is in the hot, hot, hot NW corridor and, Old Town Arvada offers excellent proximity to multiple forms of transportation i.e. highway, rail, bus, bike lanes, as well as being a good central location if your commute takes you to Boulder, Broomfield/36 Corridor, Downtown Denver, Anschutz Campus, Denver Airport. Even the DTC, while a distance can be accessed via 470 or I-25. Beyond geographic location, the planners in Arvada have made a conscious effort to plan and implement a true new urbanism design for the area including pedestrian friendly streets, traffic calming road design and varied housing stock. If LoDo and the Platte Valley can be considered ‘Manhattan’, I would suggest Old Town Arvada to be the next Park Slope or Brooklyn Heights with affordability not found throughout most of the metro area.”

“Superior – as an overall, least amount of homes available (month and a half), 12% increase in overall pricing for the last 12 months, and 105% List/Sale Ratio. A pretty strong market.”

“Louisville is hot. During the summers, there is festival every Friday night that fills the streets. The Sweet Cow ice cream shop is the ‘it’ place for families. Diverse dining options bring locals and out of towners every morning, noon and night. I blogged on Louisville, if you’d like to read: http://www.boulderrealestatenews.com/about-last-night-in-louisville/ — Also, Louisville/Superior is now home to a ‘Diverging Diamond’ interchange. Great technology moves traffic much more quickly and efficiently. Super example of improving the infrastructure in the community to help local businesses grow.”

“Aurora around the new medical center is HOTTTTTT. Brick ranch homes, multiple levels and large lots contribute to the speed of sales. Pricing is appreciating rapidly and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a rebirth of new homes pop up as people buy and scrape.”
