Many different industries across the Colorado, including the real estate sector, are in the beginning stages of what people are now calling a “come-back”.  The come-back initialized in February when increases in home sales and decreases in foreclosures could be seen across Colorado especially in the Boulder/Denver area.  Homes that are priced for less than $500 thousand have been flying off the market in record time which many are attributing to low volumes of inventory, even lower interest rates, an improved local job market, recent hikes in rent, and an overall increase in buyer's demand.

Although these changes can be seen across the board for this particular price point the overall inventory of homes for sale is significantly lower then anticipated.

The mountains of Colorado are lovely, but the good thing is you do not have to live in the midst of nowhere to enjoy them. One region which shows how correct that is is the Front Range region. One city in particular, Louisville, Colorado, has gained a tremendous level of national recognition for being the number one best spot to live in America.

The real reason why this city is now so well-known is that it's just a fabulous spot to live.

The community which exists in Louisville is an offshoot of Boulder in the fact that quite a few people who live here share the same values, hobbies and interests, and general sense of community pride. In
