Colorado: Your Introductory Moving Guide

Colorado is known for its majestic mountains and rich history. The state also offers an abundance of opportunities for newcomers to start fresh. One of the best ways to find out if moving to Colorado is the right choice is to look at the facts.

You’ll want to get to know the state before settling down, particularly if you have plans to become a small business owner upon your move. To help, Realtor Brian Chandler offers these tips to help you learn the ins and outs of the Centennial State.

Living in Colorado

In general, Coloradans have relatively high incomes. While there are families with low incomes, the median salary per household is between $82,000 and $85,000. What’s more, these averages are $10,000 to $15,000 higher than the national average.

Things to Know about Sales Tax

Did you know that Colorado has some of the highest sales tax? In some places, you can expect to pay as much as 11.2% sales tax. While the state sales tax is only 2.9%, some cities tack on additional sales tax. So keep this in mind when you plan to move to Colorado.

You should check what the sales taxes are in various s counties to ensure you don’t move somewhere that has a higher sales tax than another county.

Lots to See and Do

If there’s one thing Colorado isn’t in short supply of, it’s beautiful sights. From the stunning mountains to the numerous parks and walking trails, you’ll never lack things to do.

And if you prefer to be surrounded by nature as opposed to the city, talk to Realtor Brian Chandler about possibly finding a home that’s away from the city life. This could help lower how much you spend on your house, too, so it’s important to consider all of your options.

Buying Your Home

It’s important to keep in mind that the median cost of homes in the US is around $500,000. Talk to your real estate agent about your home needs, and be upfront about your budget.

You’ll also need to plan for schooling and commuting (if applicable). Do you want to be closer to work and school? Your realtor can help you factor the essentials into your move.

Finding a Reliable Doctor

Moving to a new area means you’ll have to find a new doctor. This can often be difficult, as you may have to wait several days to get an appointment. Thankfully, you can get in touch with a licensed medical professional using nothing but your smartphone. There are many benefits to having an online doctor, including same-day appointments, specialized care based on what you need, and the ability to speak to a doctor from the comfort of your home. If you can’t find a doctor you trust locally, telehealth is a fantastic option.
