Sales have slowed a bit from last year; however, according to the analysis on, that’s still 20 days faster than Adams County, 29 days faster than Denver metro area and 67 days faster than the U.S. average.

Experts attribute much of the growth in Northglenn to large millennial populations, a strong job market and the opportunity to purchase into otherwise expensive housing markets.

Parts of Thornton are also included in 80233, where buyers can find median list price is of $278,000, compared with $477,000 for the overall metro Denver area.
