Home prices are on the rise in Colorado – and that's no secret. According to the Colorado Association of Realtors, the statewide median single-family home price has increased around 20 percent year-over year, topping $500,000 in April of 2021.

That being said, there's a big difference in sale price depending on what Colorado county a prospective homebuyer is shopping in. While places like Boulder and Pitkin counties have a median home sale price of $610,300 and $649,900, respectively, other counties have a median home sale price of less than $100,000.
