Market Data: Mountains & Rural Areas

Home Prices for Small Towns and Rural Areas

In this section, you’ll find pricing data for Nederland, Niwot, Lyons and four rural areas we’ve defined in Boulder County, including the high mountains, the foothills near Boulder, and the rural plains to the north and east of Boulder. Because there are fewer sales in these areas, these data are less reliable than those of the larger communities we cover, but they do provide a general sense of current pricing and long-term appreciation rates.
