Why is Thornton Colorado a Popular Relocation Destination?

The combination of home affordability, short commute time to either Boulder or Denver, and local character has made Thornton an unbeatable option for individuals and families moving to the metro area over the past 15 years. The stats tell a big part of the story. In Thornton…Median home price:  $288,800 (well below the metro area average), 30-year fixed mortgage rates:  3.6%, Average home value appreciation (last ten years):  15%, Median resident age:  32 years old, Average commute time:  30 minutes.

With the Denver housing market exploding over the past few years, the average home price in Thornton has started to look more and more appealing to a lot of Colorado home shoppers. The numbers reflect that Thornton is a community where many savvy home buyers have chosen to put down roots, save some money, and watch their investment mature. House values have gone up about 15% over the last decade. The cost of living in Thornton CO is 17% above the national average, but it’s much more affordable than other metro area communities like Denver, Aurora, Boulder, and Lakewood.
