Is Boulder a Big Town or a Little City?
Maybe a little of each. You’ll find amazing shopping and dining options in town. The city is home to the flagship campus of the University of Colorado. Its small enough to bike to work and big enough to have several branches of an amazing library. Whether renting or seeking homes for sale in Boulder Co you will discover a wide variety of housing. And better be prepared for sticker shock. Homes cost 40% more than the national average.
Founded in the 1800’s
Whether you call it a town or city or simply home, you’ll find a wide variety of homes for sale in Boulder Co. There are historic homes, modern net zero structures, patio homes, properties with amazing views and pretty much everything in between. We have a strong open space policy here. Basically, open land is purchased through government bonding programs. The land remains undeveloped; farming is sometimes allowed and frequently you’ll find an extensive trail system on the open space land. It both adds to the natural beauty and protects from our neck of the woods becoming one more endless example of urban sprawl.
