Denver, a Top Moving Destination for Homeowners
Denver attracts movers with more than its standing as one of the greatest beer cities in America. According to SmartAsset, Denver is also the number one city to be a homeowner. And, good news for residents, it was also ranked number one for home sellers. With real estate supremacy in the bag, it’s no wonder that the Denver metro area ranks as the 13th most moved-to city in 2017 — according to Updater’s annual moving destinations report that ranks the top 15 most moved-to destinations in the U.S.
These aggregated moving trends were determined by analyzing 1,000,0000 anonymous household moves, that took place between Jan. 1 and Oct. 1, 2017.
In addition to its homeowner perks, Denver is also a city on the economic rise. According to WalletHub, Denver ranks as the second most recession-recovered big city in the U.S. The city was also, according to NerdWallet, the second-best destination for job seekers — after Austin. This particular financial growth has created great housing options for young professionals in the city.
The Denver metro area has a population of almost 2.9 million, with a median home price of $410,000 and an average household income of almost $72K.
Updater’s Regional Director of Multifamily Sales and former Denver resident, Jake Johnson, had this to say about the city:
It’s no surprise that Denver is quickly becoming a top-living destination. I’ll never forget the first day I walked to my office. It was March, the temperature was 55 degrees (felt like 70), and if I turned around to look west, I could have sold the image to Hallmark. I tell people all of the time, if 300 plus days of sunshine, some of the healthiest living, and adventure are your thing, you need to be in Denver.
Here are a few more stats for why Denver is one of the top moving destinations in the nation.
The Denver metro area boasts:
- Shows at the stunning Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater.
- Awesome wintertime sports like skiing and a slew of snow parties.
- Beautiful, year-round hiking trails.
