“A lot of things are going right in this area now. I am seeing more young people coming to the valley,” Daly said. “I think the Grand Junction area will exceed Boulder. Boulder is missing a few things that Grand Junction has.”  

 

Boulder’s missing amenities include a major river in the middle of town and a minutes-from-downtown, expert, mountain bike-trail system. Also, there’s a lack of affordable homes. 

 

In Grand Junction, homes are listed at a median price of $259,250, up about 8.5 percent over the past 12 months, compared with $824,500 in Boulder, up about 5.3 percent, according to Zillow. Rents are about half as costly in Grand Junction, at a median of $1,225, compared with $2,400 in Boulder.
