Montrose is a nice small city but it is getting costly for homes. Unless they adopt an affordable homes policy, I look for it to be the next Telluride. I have seen Cobble Creek Golf Course in Montrose and it is really pretty with the San Juans as a backdrop. The San Juans with snow on them contrast with the deep green grass on the course and it is beautiful! I think it is a pretty city and I love Ouray, not far from there.

Delta will be more reasonable but still not cheap on homes but cheaper than Montrose. Also look at Orchard City and Cedaredge. Cedaredge is a small Mayberry type of town. Delta will be more on the desert side. Montrose is green but as you go toward Grand Junction, it becomes desert. In Delta and the area, there are a lot of orchards in the area as it is warmer there. You can go up from Cedaredge toward Grand Mesa and it is really pretty and scenic up there. Powderhorn Ski Resort is up that way. There is something like 18 lakes in the Land O' Lakes area - Grand Mesa, so people liking to be near lakes might like that area. Delta is a nice town with a charming historic downtown with restored buildings. I also like the "cool" looking Egyptian Theatre.

Again both are nice areas, Delta more on the deserty side and cheaper to live, Montrose is greener, especially as you go toward the San Juans and near beautiful Ouray. Retirees seem to live more in the Orchard City-Cedaredge-Delta area. I look for both areas to grow substantially.
