Lots of Coloradans are choosing to rent now rather than buy – some younger, some older. New rentals get quickly absorbed quickly, even more so in the Broomfield-Boulder corridor, where developers find few opportunities to build. But you can preview four units of those now, in good commuter reach of downtown or Boulder. Principals at Granite Capital Group say their ENCLAVE at Vista Ridge, two miles west of I-25 on Highway 7 in Erie, arrives at a time when millennial buyers are forming households later, and when baby boomers who’ve sold their older homes are choosing to rent, rather than buy.Granite Capital and its homebuilder Chartered Development Corp. have 25 years in Colorado’s market and have pioneered low-maintenance living concepts here -- a big factor, they say, driving the popularity of renting. Vista Ridge is a ‘close-in suburban’ setting that’s already walkable to shopping and some dining; and are within a minute of a new King Soopers -- nearly as close to where an Ikea store is headed, not to mention Children’s Hospital’s campus and a 66-acre site for UC Health.You’ll tour designs that blend roomy townhouses with single-level units – all with direct-access garages; and you can rent now starting from $1,395/month. You’ll see a townhome with a main-floor master suite now; and plans for single-FAMILY rentals headed here next spring. As part of Vista Ridge’s HOA, all residents get access to two pools, bike trails, parks and tennis; and have Colorado National Golf Club and Black Rock Elementary School right in the neighborhood. Take I-25 north from 120th just past E470, to Highway 7; and head west two miles to Mountain View. Or from Boulder, take Baseline east 13 miles; or visit EnclaveVistaRidge.com.
