EAST DENVER AREA
We’ve all spent numerous hours searching for the perfect home for our family and started feeling overwhelmed by the options. However, real estate doesn’t have to become daunting. With more online resources available, we wanted to provide you with a practical picture of where you’re considering relocating to.
This area includes the cities and areas of Aurora, Southeast Aurora, Commerce city and Brighton. The city of Aurora is the second largest city in Colorado by population so it has a dense population on the central and west sides and a spread out growing area on the Southeast side. Commerce City was a mature industrial section that has some growing new sections out towards the airport. Brighton is a farming community that has grown into a bedroom community for Denver commuters. Most of this area is flat and spreads out towards the plains of Colorado.
Types of homes
This area has a wide variation of homes from older single family homes and condos to the new build single family homes of Southeast Aurora, Reunion area of Commerce City and the Lochbuie section of Brighton. Home prices tend to be slightly lower overall in these areas compared to the average in other metro areas.
