Living in Boulder – Homes



Boulder offers a variety of homes for sale, the big question is: can you afford to buy or do you want to rent? When we moved to Boulder, we rented a home for 16 months. This provided time to learn about the community and the neighborhoods/area that we wanted to live in.

There are many nice neighborhoods such as North Boulder, Downtown, the Hill, East or South Boulder, or the surrounding area. There are condos, townhomes, single-family, estates and farms. If you would like to build a home, you can find land or older homes that can be scrapped.

You have a wide variety in town, the foothills, mountains and east of town. All of these areas are very nice and include great schools, parks, shopping and all the amenities.

Homes are expensive and rents are high. You can easily spend a million for a starter home and pay over $1,400 – $3,500 a month to rent a home or condo.

Here are some of the newest home listings in Boulder and the surrounding area.
