Why More People Are Moving To Colorado

Moving to Colorado? Find the Perfect Location.

According to a headline in the Denver Post in late 2014, “Colorado ranks fourth among states for population gains,” and statistics show current numbers are expected to rise even more over the next couple years. So why are more people moving to Colorado? Clearly, Colorado is a popular place to live, which is no surprise to those of us living here and to companies like Mountain Moving in Ft. Collins, a reputable moving company that has relocated its share of those migrating to our Centennial State.

In fact, the entire Front Range has some of the fastest growing small (but not too small) communities, according to a study of the state’s population growth last year. Although people often think of larger cities when they think of growth, many of those moving in are choosing the Front Range communities, such as Loveland, Ft. Collins, Longmont, and Greeley, all of which are experiencing strong economic growth and attracting a well-educated, highly skilled work force.

Moving to Colorado is all about the Rocky Mountains, right? People come here for the year round outdoor activities, whether from a mile high or all the way up to 14,000 feet. There are advantages and disadvantages to living in the mountains versus living on the plains, though, and Mountain Moving encourages those relocating here to consider carefully where they want to live. Choices include Ft. Collins and neighboring communities along the Front Range as well as tourist destinations and mountain communities such as Estes Park just up the road. But residents pay the price for these small niche communities nestled in the Rockies. Mountain Moving, locally owned since 2001, reminds its clients that a mountain getaway only a 30-minute drive away—without the high prices, hazardous winter road conditions and snow storms, long drives down the mountain, as well as a highly transient population that is in and out with the seasons. Wherever you choose to live, however, trust Mountain Moving to get you there.
