Boulder Property Market and Real Estate Guide

(Boulder, Colorado - CO, USA)

Image of Boulder PlazaThe Colorado city of Boulder is most famous for its great location close to the Rocky Mountains. Almost 100,000 people live here and purchasing property in the area provides a great investment opportunity, as the market is a steady one due to its location.

The University of Colorado is based in the city, as is the accredited Buddhist-inspired university Naropa.
Denver is only 30 miles / 48 km away and property in Boulder provides a far better investment return than its larger and more popular neighbor. Of note, the city's high elevation level means that it is important for new visitors to drink lots of fluids, to avoid getting dehydrated with the low humidity levels.

The city is surrounded by unique landscapes including the towering Rocky Mountains, as well as the Great Plains. Boulder was built at the foothills of the famous mountain range and boasts many interesting rock formations known as Flatirons, which are popular with avid climbers and hikers.

Renting Serviced Apartments

Renting serviced apartments in Boulder is popular with people who work in Denver, since renting here is cheaper than in its larger neighbor. Typical furnishings are modern, with many offering good heating systems for the cool winters.

The two large universities mean that finding rentals close to the campuses can be tricky. Some of the cheaper options are more suitable for students rather than commuters, as furnishings are fairly basic, although rent is cheap.

Buying Apartments and Houses

Boulder provides a good chance to invest in property in the state of Colorado due to its proximity to Denver, as well as offering beautiful natural landscapes close by. Non-US nationals will have an excess of paperwork to fill out and intimate background checks will be done on all applicants looking to purchase property. Estate agent fees vary depending on the company, with most foreign investors adding around ten percent on top of the property price in legal fees and agents' fees.

Real Estate Agents

The real estate agencies in Boulder all speak English and some also speak French and Spanish on request. The majority of agents are found in the heart of the city, where many local businesses are located. The Internet is ideal for checking out the types of properties companies offer before making an appointment.
