It's a favorite topic of realtors—and for good reason. Location is one of the biggest determinants of home value. Where you live influences where you work and where you work out, what schools your kids attend, where you shop for groceries, and the distance between you and your favorite ski run.

Solterra’s home city of Lakewood boasts some amazing location stats:

  • Home values rose approximately eight percent in 2015.
  • Lakewood is equidistant between downtown Denver and the mountains.
  • 35 percent of the city’s land area — more than 7,000 acres — is devoted to parks, trails and open space.
  • Lakewood maintains a cultural center and four full-service rec centers.

Hikers and mountain bikers enjoy the trail network woven through Lakewood’s foothills, creating scenic and sometimes challenging outdoor recreation opportunities just minutes from home, or very possibly out your back door.

Excellent schools, cultural offerings, the shops and restaurants of Belmar and a light rail system connecting residents to downtown Denver and soon to DIA have turned Lakewood into one of the metro area’s most well-loved, vibrant communities. Pat yourself on the back, Solterra residents: you’ve chosen a first-class location.
