Why retire in Northern Colorado? Great question! If 300 days of sunshine, mild winters, low humidity, and beautiful mountain views are not enough, we also have some of the lowest property taxes nationally at just 0.66%. This means that for every $100,000 of home value, the taxes are only $660.
Retire to Colorado and enjoy our many outdoor activities. Would you like to golf in the morning and ski in the afternoon? There are several months in the year where that is possible. If you like hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, biking, walking, repelling, boating, bird watching, skiing, swimming, photography, sky diving, wildlife viewing, or just relaxing with an afternoon beverage watching the sunset, then Northern Colorado is for you.
The Northern Colorado real estate market has many beautiful communities for retirees. If you like a minimalist lifestyle close to shops, bars and restaurants, we have great old town bungalows and lofts. If you like maintenance free living, then a beautiful new patio home may work for you. If you want to live in the mountains and have 40 acres of land, we have it. If you want a large home with water and mountain views, it's here. Want to live on a golf course and still have water and mountain views, we got it. Check out our dedicated Golf Course Community Page Linked Here. While the typical retirement community is almost a thing of the past here in Northern Colorado, there are many communities that have a large 55+ population with clubhouses, activities, golf and community events such as Bucking Horse, Kechter Farm, Highland Meadows, Water Valley, Harmony Club, Marianna Butte, Observatory Village and Ptarmigan. Maintenance free Patio Homes are another great option and many have community clubhouses and provide lawn care, snow removal, and other amenities.
