And if you’re in that boat (and willing to add the extra commute time for a good deal), you may want to look to Lamar, ranked No. 1 among the top 10 cities in Colorado for affordable homes.




Homes in the small Weld County town carry an average annual mortgage payment of $8,373 ($697 per month), according to a new SmartAsset report that lists 10 cities in the state with the most affordable homes.

The New York-based financial services and analytics website looked at a number of factors to determine the 10 most affordable places to buy a home. They include:

Closing costs.

Annual property tax.

Annual homeowner’s insurance.

Average annual mortgage payment.

Median income of residents.

“There’s a lot more to home affordability than the price a home buyer agrees to pay the seller,” the report said. “Other factors like closing costs, real estate taxes, homeowners insurance and mortgage rates can quickly add up.”
