Its a new breed of ranch homes reports the Wall St Journal recently and that is very true around Broomfield. The main floor ranch flow and open concept is far more popular than only to the + 55 crowd. The wide open spaces and very nice finishes all on one floor is a selling feature with wide appeal.
My typical ranch style clients are late 40’s and early 50’s who have enjoyed all the benefits of an active Colorado lifestyle. Running, climbing mountains, biking, skiing, sports and more! This can make those stairs in their current home not as fun as doing the other activity. So we help sell their 2-story and the split levels that were massively built in the Denver metro and get them into the ranch.
For the +55 crowd Anthem Ranch in Broomfield has several thousand complete homes and Toll Brothers is building out the last thousand or so sites on the Ranch side. Anthem Highlands is the non age restricted side which has 4 builders going full speed on homes and quite a few are the ranch type.
Take a look at this short video if you haven’t been to this part of Broomfield lately. https://youtu.be/DsvB2X-1ovo The model community is a great way to see the really well done designer touches/styles for ideas for your home. The prices from Toll start around $500k if you wanted walls and quickly go to above $800k. The Highlands side you can get into from the high $300’s.
Thinking about the long term opportunity of buying a ranch and the trend of demographics would tell us that the ranch is going to be very popular in Broomfield. The ranch homes of today have higher ceiling and are very bright inside unlike those 70’s homes you may have grown up in or remember. You can enjoy and live many years in this type of home even if you develop some age or sports related opportunity.
We would love to help you with your plans for main lifestyle living. My Broomfield office keeps us right in the thick of this fast growing and popular home choice. Total Market Knowledge and fun of course!
