Until recently we did not consider Rifle real estate to be a stand alone market in western Colorado. With recent changes in the economy, housing market, job market and community at large, Rifle is now seeing more and more action. Rifle attracts people with mixed personal and professional backgrounds.
Offering affordable living, a growing community and beautiful river and mountain views are some of the things that makes Rifle real estate appealing. Formerly known as one of the oil and gas meccas of Western Colorado, Rifle now offers much more than just that.
More and more people are getting pushed out of The Roaring Fork Valley and forced down valley to Rifle.

This trend continues for people who seek this lifestyle today in Western Colorado. Rifle still offers amazing ranch property at an affordable price.
The Colorado River runs through the Town of Rifle and on hot summer days it’s not unusual to find people in the river swimming or hanging out along the shore.
