Finding an affordable place to live in Colorado is not always an easy task. While housing prices continue to rebound and general goods and services continue to rise, it feels like affordable living could be a thing of the past. Luckily, there are still some cities in Colorado that qualify as affordable. Using science and data, AreaVibes has compiled a list of the most affordable places to live in Colorado. These cities have the lowest cost of living in all of Colorado.

Listed above are the most affordable places to live in Colorado with a population of more than 5,000 people. To calculate the most affordable cities in Colorado, the cost of living index for each city was calculated, then compared to the national average of 100. The cost of living index takes into account the following categories: goods and services, groceries, health care, housing, transportation and utilities.

To customize your list of affordable places to live in Colorado, you can adjust the filters to meet your needs. This will allow you to select the city size (population) as well as what other categories (amenities, crime, education, employment, housing and weather) might be important to you.
