Ten Best Colorado Suburbs to Buy a House

Earlier this year, we shared a study arguing that renting is better than buying in much of the Denver-metro area despite rising rent prices in these parts.

But if you decide to make a purchase anywhere, where should you do it?

The Niche website, which specializes in ranking pretty much anything and everything, has some advice via its list of the best Colorado suburbs in which to buy a house.

As you'll see, the top ten is heavily weighted toward relatively affluent suburbs in the Denver-Boulder area.
