Thanks to its location, millennial buyers and increasing affordability, the suburb of Northglenn is gaining national attention. According to the Denver Business Journal, last week realtor.com named 80233 – the zip code covering the original Northglenn neighborhoods — one of the 20 most popular housing markets in the U.S. this year.
Coming in third behind suburbs in the Fort Worth, Texas and Pleasant Hill, California areas, Northglenn has homes selling in as little as just 11 days, according to the report. Sales have slowed a bit from last year; however, according to the analysis on realtor.com, 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. Affordability seems to be key in the increased interest in Northglenn, as buyers can find a larger inventory of homes under $300,000. 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. According to the report, millennials are the dominant homebuyer in the area, making up 36 percent of mortgages.
Coming in just behind Northglenn is the Colorado Springs zip code of 80916, which ranked No. 4, with a median price of $178,000 and listings remaining active for about 17 days.

"My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of working with Andy for our first home purchase. The experience we had was nothing short of amazing. At the time of our house hunt it was a sellers market with multiple offers in on homes and homes closing in under 1 week on the market regularly. Even when Andy was out of town on business he made sure one of his extremely knowledgeable colleagues was able to show us properties for the weekend. After a fairly quick search we decided on a home and with Andy's guidance our first offer was accepted and after the appraisal he was able to negotiate our price down to save us some extra money. I will definitely be recommending Andy to my family and friends, he did so much to take all of the stress out of the process for us. Thanks Andy!!"
