"It's still a seller's market, but we're starting to see a little more balance to that market," says Wilson, summarizing his analysis of 10 data points or “vital statistics” for Boulder County residential real estate.

Thirteen Colorado cities – including two in Boulder County – ranked among the Best Housing Markets in the U.S., according to WalletHub’s report released in August, 2017.

The report compares 300 small, mid-size and large U.S. cities across 21 key indicators of “Real Estate Market” – which ranked housing-market attractiveness and “Affordability and Economic Environment.” 

Each dimension was evaluated with weighted metrics, listed below, and then graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the healthiest. The cities were then rank-ordered.

Most of the metrics fall in the real estate market category.

Real estate market metrics are: home value forecast, median home-price appreciation, average days for selling, share of homes

In fact, women-led businesses are cropping up across Colorado cities. Denver and Fort Collins also rank among the top 10 metros for women, ranking as Nos. 3 and 7 respectively. All have above-average levels of women’s entrepreneurship and small-business loan rates, the report says.

Colorado exceeds the nation for women that are self-employed with about 9.9 percent compared to 7.2 percent in the U.S. as a whole.
