Colorado – America's Third Best State for Business

Real Estate Agent with Parker Homes - The Bandy Team - Keller Williams Park Meadows

Folks living in Colorado have always known how great it is to live here, and we've once again made it into the news! Coming in at #3 on the latest CNBC's list of “America's Top States for Business,” Colorado also ranked within the top 10 states on four other critical variables:


  • quality of life (#2);

  • business friendliness (#4)

  • overall current economic environment (#8), and

  • workforce (#10)

These rankings corroborate a report issued late last year by, which rated Colorado as the 4th best state in the country for business (using the criteria above, as well as costs, regulatory environment, and growth prospects. You may remember that this blog recently discussed a report naming the Denver housing market as America's most-improved, and the news for our fantastic city just keeps getting better.


A May report from (an affiliate of the Denver Business Journal) rated Denver as having the 6th best quality of life in America. This ranking was based on:


  • rate of population growth;

  • education level;

  • rate of home ownership;

  • mortgage and rent affordability;

  • percentage of newer and larger houses;

  • home value;

  • median household income;

  • shortest commute times, and

  • unemployment rates


Bringing things even closer to home, a report from CNN's found that people with Highlands Ranch, Colorado homes are, happily, in the 12th “Best Small City in America.”
