Colorado is a hot spot for people of all ages – from young professionals to families to retirees.

Whether you’re looking for plenty of outdoor recreation, a good place to raise a family, or a region with abundant resources, this is the place! And Dream Finders Homes knows that one of the hottest markets in the state is Fort Collins. Let’s talk about a few things you should know before moving to Fort Collins.

Here is an overview of some key facts about Fort Collins.

  1. A healthy housing market. People are flocking to Fort Collins. The population has quadrupled in the past 50 years and continues to grow. It’s one of the hottest markets in the state and yet is one of the most stable in the country. Though the median home prices are increasing, the cost of living remains lower than in other Colorado cities like Denver and Boulder. And Fort Collins has seen steady appreciation over the decades.

  1. Great employment opportunities. From health to hospitality, industrial to financial, academic to artistic, job opportunities are available in a variety of industries. Aside from being home to major companies like Broadcom, Hewlett Packard, OtterBox, and Odell Brewing Company, many local businesses are setting up in Fort Collins, and providing employment opportunities.

  1. It’s family-friendly. Fort Collins has excellent schools and an impressive library system (over 139,000 children’s books in circulation). There are over 50 parks, sports fields, playgrounds, and open areas, plus extensive options for walking, biking, and hiking. This along with access to fresh fruits and veggies from the many farmer’s markets and lower than average healthcare costs provide a high quality of life for many families.

  1. Excellent schools. In addition to Colorado State University, located in the heart of Fort Collins, this city has several high-ranking public and private secondary schools. The Poudre School District is one of the best school districts in the state and is ranked the 9th largest district in Colorado. With high importance placed on education, you’ll find the highly-regarded International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in several Fort Collins schools.

  1. Proximity to Denver. Residents enjoy both the small-town vibes of Fort Collins and the big-city convenience of Denver. Located just an hour north of Denver, historic downtown Fort Collins, which inspired Disneyland’s Main Street USA, offers an array of shops and restaurants in Old Town and Jessup Farm Artisan Village. The city is home to breweries, museums, college campuses, and the Cache la Poudre River.

  1. An unmatched active lifestyle. The opportunities for an active life are endless here. No matter the time of year, Fort Collins is the outdoor lover’s dream.
