So, If you were to re-locate to Colorado and had to work in Denver and North of, but didnt want to live in the city-where would you live? We are not city folk-and need land. We'd prefer to be outside of city limits but not hours away. Not a fan of traffic, college life scene and or strip malls... obviously not from the area and could use all the help possiable.
Thanks in advance!

Price range? Commute limits? House size and age?

Check out the western part of Golden, Coal Creek Canyon, or Evergreen if you like mountains. If you want more of a ranch area, you can go east of Denver a few miles. There is a lot of open land out that way.

Thanks whoisjongalt! Steve-we dont want to go over board on the price just yet-we still own a home back in michigan.we'd probably rent for a year to get our feet grounded.Hopefully sticking around the price range of 850-1k amonth.A home not an apt.But if we were to buy is there something in that area with land for around 190k225? Also my territory will be north denver up to cheyenne wy, it will also go about 50min east of denver.im in my car all day so that commute isnt that big of a concern however i dont want it to far out of my way.

I'm from your neck of the country and it's far easier to find land at a decent price back there than here. Your options will be limited compared to what you're used to.

I agree with Jerry, and I'd say if your territory goes all the way to Cheyenn, you could look in Larmier County. I think it's a tad less expensive there, and there's a little more open land available.

I grew up in Fort Collins. I enjoyed growing up there. There are a number of small towns nearby that have easy access to the interstate.

I agree, look in Larimer County. Ft. Collins is just under an hour from 120th Ave and 25. If you live on the east side of 25 just be aware that is more a prime area for tornadoes during spring. Good luck.
