Cities with the most expensive homes in Colorado

Purchasing a home is among the most important investments a person will make in their lifetime. More than a place to live, homeownership is an asset with the potential to tremendously rise in value. But with home prices reaching record heights, affordability plays a huge role—and, increasingly, is a huge barrier—for buyers.

In March, the typical home value in the United States was $355,696—4.6% higher than the previous year.

High mortgage rates have also had a major impact on affordability: As of April 25, the 30-year fixed mortgage rate stands at 7.17%, three points higher than the average mortgage American households are sitting on. That disparity has kept many people in homes they might otherwise leave—to pursue another job, to downsize, or to upsize—further squeezing an already-tight market.

While home prices are up across the U.S., certain cities command significantly higher prices than others. Location, size, age, and condition are all contributing factors to home values.

Stacker compiled a list of cities with the most expensive homes in Colorado using data from Zillow. Cities are ranked by the Zillow Home Values Index for all homes as of March 2024. The charts in this story were created automatically using Matplotlib.
