Colorado's Fifty Most Expensive Zip Codes for Home Buyers

Courtesy of the Kentwood Company
We recently posted about the most expensive zip codes in Colorado as judged by average rent prices. Now, there's a new list of the fifty most expensive Colorado zip codes for homebuyers, and the numbers are even more eye-popping.

Example? Median rent for the top zip code in our previous item landed at $1,991 per month. In contrast, the average home price in the number-one zip code below comes in at more than $2 million.

And, yes, we said "average."

The data comes from Property Shark, which notes that mountain resorts are very well represented on the roster, as is to be expected. But so, too, is the metro area. Eleven zips from Denver proper made the cut, tying Douglas County. And five zip codes from within the Boulder city limits are supplemented by ones in neighboring communities that people working in the town were once able to afford. That's a lot harder now.

Continue to count down Colorado's most expensive zip codes for homebuyers, with Property Shark facts and figures illustrated by images from our recent realvestate porn slide show. Note that while the digits range from fifty to one, there are actually 57 zips on view thanks to ties.
