Senior Housing in Colorado

Colorado is one of the healthiest states in the nation. Only 20% of the population is considered overweight here, much lower than the 50% national average. And it’s no wonder people in Colorado are active. The government owns about a third of all the land in Colorado—giving the state plenty of stunning mountain and desert wilderness, perfect for hiking, camping, skiing, fishing and hunting. With stunning mountains, sparkling lakes, and a wealth of outdoor recreation available, Colorado is one of the best places to retire for active seniors.

It’s not cheap to find senior living in Colorado. Median household income is above the national average, and so are property values. However, Colorado has a flat tax rate of 4.63%--one of the lowest in the nation—and sales taxes at only 2.9%. Colorado’s overall taxes are 34th highest in the nation—lower than average.
