In the section we’ve called Comparing Communities, we’ve put together summary data comparing the percentages of single family homes vs. condos/townhomes in each community as well as the relative number of homes of various ages and sizes in each community. If you’re looking for a home with more than 3,000 square feet (not including basement), for example, you’ll see in these charts that this size home constitutes less than 10% of the housing stock in communities like Boulder, Louisville, Lafayette, Longmont, Arvada, and Westminster, but in Erie and Superior these homes constitute 13-17% of the housing stock. Similarly, if you prefer homes build prior to 1950, you’ll see that roughly 8-15% of the housing in Boulder, Louisville, Longmont, and Lafayette was built during this period and that 5% or so was built prior to 1920. In contrast, almost none of this age housing exists in the other communities we cover.
