Real estate

From rural to urban, from luxury homes to mobile homes, from boutique shops to office buildings, Garfield County real estate covers a broad range of properties.

During the county's boom years at the start of the new millennium, real estate throughout most of the county appreciated dramatically, until the downturn of 2008. As of 2012, industry projections revealed a slowing market, with a rebound forecast by 2014.

Growth is expected to be slow. However, with continuing gas exploration, there is expected to be an increase in construction of principal, retirement and second homes. Construction of office buildings and businesses may also expand, along with construction of municipal and community facilities and roads.

A constant and positive influence for regional property values is the attractiveness of Garfield County and its municipalities. These values are defined as a high quality of life from diverse employment opportunities, excellent schools, modern public amenities, and proximity to popular resort areas for skiing and golf.

Garfield County is home to numerous real estate professionals who know the lay of the land, and have a historic understanding of the market. The county has many resources with which to aid buyers, sellers and developers who are seeking real estate opportunities and the highest value for their properties.
