DENVER (KDVR) — Want to buy a house in colorful Colorado? Unless you’re seeking peace on the plains, be prepared for a more expensive market than in other states.
September housing market data shows the median sales price for a single-family home in all 64 counties, as reported by the Colorado Association of Realtors. For half of them, the numbers show sales prices higher than the recent national median of $416,000.
Unsurprisingly, five of Colorado’s destination mountain counties saw median home prices in the millions. In the southwest Colorado county of San Miguel, home to Telluride, the median price was more than $4.1 million. Pitkin County, home to Aspen, saw a median price of more than $7 million.
Meanwhile, homebuyers on the Front Range paid a median of $829,000 in Boulder County, ranking it among the top 10 most expensive counties to buy a house. In Denver, that number was about $660,000 — but still lower than other metro-area counties like Broomfield, Douglas and Jefferson, where prices topped $700,000.
