Great News, Colorado!
As published this morning by the Denver Business Journal via the American City Business Journals, a new list of the top cities that are best for first-time home buyers was announced and three of the top 10 are located in Colorado.
Centennial ranked No. 3, Longmont ranked No. 9 and Thornton ranked No. 10 in WalletHub’s “2015 Best and Worst Cities for First-Time Home Buyers.”
WalletHub said it ranked 300 U.S. cities for housing affordability, real estate market rank, and living environment, such as crime, weather and recreation. Centennial ranked high, because it’s the second-best city in the country for low crime, according to the list.
When the results were totaled, Overland Park, Kansas was ranked No. 1 and Compton, California was ranked No. 300.
Other Colorado cities making the list included Arvada (No. 13), Colorado Springs (No. 15), Westminster (No. 19), Greeley (No. 21), Fort Collins (No. 30), Aurora (No. 45), Lakewood (No. 64), Denver (No. 72), Pueblo (No. 83), Boulder (No. 116).
