The magic of Durango Colorado radiates throughout its terrain – there are very few places that can match the feeling you have when you survey the surroundings, from the valley to the mountains. Throughout the year, thousands of visitors come to enjoy the many wonderful recreational activities afforded by the surroundings, and many more decide to return – sometimes permanently. The Durango Colorado real estate market is in high demand, and filled with promise and potential.
Founded in 1880 by the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad, the city of Durango has a storied past as a mining town and a ‘wild west’ destination that appealed to cowboys and ranchers. Today, that character and spirit can still be seen and felt throughout various historical sections of the city – but this place has grown into a diverse, four season community for people from all backgrounds who share the same desire for excellence. While it is an obvious destination for vacationers, the city has also found itself on ‘top city’ lists – in 2006, bizjournals.com named Durango as one of the top ten places that offers a high quality of life for residents, and only a year later, CNN singled out the city as one of the best places to invest in real estate.
