Brighton, Colorado


The city of  Brighton, Colorado real estate is a thriving small town that is situated on the northeast corner of Metro Denver (about a twenty-minute drive), and about fifteen minutes from Denver International Airport (DIA). Brighton, located in the fastest growing area of Colorado, provides its 30,000 plus residents with all of the highly desired modern city amenities while still retaining that "down-home" ambiance. Behind all of this is a strong economy, an affordable cost of living,

an outstanding community infrastructure and a wide variety of very affordable home choices. In 2004, the Colorado Economic Development Council chose the City of Brighton as Large Community of the Year.

You will find that the cost of buying a home in Brighton is extremely affordable. The cost of housing is still among the lowest in the Denver Metropolitan area, with the cost of housing averaging between $200,000 and $240,000 depending on whether you are purchasing an existing home or a newly built home. There are also many different types of housing options to choose from, including everything from "starter" homes to townhomes and condos to "executive" estates.

Brighton has a dynamic economy, that keeps the unemployment rate very low, features stable job expansion, and promises a high projected future job growth (more than twice the national projection for the next ten years). Brighton is also well positioned to benefit from the quickly expanding "green economy": Vestas America, a company that is investing $230 million in a local wind-power turbine nacelle and blade manufacturing facility, is generating 1,350 new jobs locally. Other companies that offer jobs locally include Halliburton, along with the K-Mart and Staples distribution centers. Brighton, being home to the county seat, is also considered a major employer in the region.

Brighton also offers a full array of opportunities for learning. The school district's mission to provide an excellent education for all is evidenced by the high rate of graduation for our students and the fact that our students score above both the state and national averages on the SAT's. Brighton's close proximity to Denver brings many post-secondary opportunities, including access to institutions such as Regis College, the University of Colorado and the Colorado State University.
