Parker, Colorado Real Estate
About Parker, Colorado
Parker, Colorado, is a modestly sized city of 60,000 residents. Residents are downright spoiled by their township as there are so many awesome options for education, fitness, and personal fulfillment. The median household income is in the low six figures and more than 75% of homes are occupied by owners rather than renters. Parker is located off the Colorado E470 and Interstate 83, and is slightly east of Interstate 25. Let’s explore what makes Parker a great place to buy a home.
Home Options in Parker
If you enjoy condo living, Parker may be the right option for your homeownership goals. There are many condos and townhomes that are single storied or have multiple floors, on street or garage parking, and small or large yards. Condo communities generally feature amenities such as swimming pools or hot tubs, snow removal, and exterior maintenance.
At a summer 2022 median home price of $750,000, homes in Parker may be considered affordable to those with the aforementioned median income. However, there are condo choices under the median that may be perfect for any budget. Well past the average one may secure a custom home with a sprawling yard, mountain views, and new construction.
Living in Parker: the Good
The Town of Parker is great in and of itself, but any town is “that” much better when it boasts its own Costco. In addition to the treasure hunt that Costco is, other treasures in town include the annual Parker Ice Trail at Discovery Park, Skyzone, and Boondocks Food and Fun.
One of the best advantages to buying a home in Parker is its access to amenities in other cities. All of the delights of Denver, Aurora, and Lakewood are less than 30 miles away. Denver is home of the Broncos, Nuggets, and Rockies professional sports teams.
Small town amenities are near to Parker as well. Highlands Ranch is around the corner, where Suga Me Sweet is known for custom cakes, cupcakes, cakepops, and classes. “The Incline” is also in nearby Manitou, if you are up for climbing 2,744 steps (for fun!).
Living in Parker: the Challenges
Unfortunately, wildfires are prevalent in Colorado overall, and Parker is not immune to this type of natural disaster. Foliage is gorgeous and adds to curb appeal, but can also be kindling for fires. The Parker Police Department offers safety tips, but residents still need to be cognizant of dangers.
