The Northglenn-centered ZIP code of 80233 is the third “hottest” in the country for 2016, meaning that properties there sell quickly and are viewed more frequently, according to research by Realtor.com.

And things are likely to get hotter still: Northglenn gets light-rail service on the N Line next year. Read on for more details.

 Millennials:

Ages 25 to 34 are 1.8 times more common in Northglenn than the national average, Realtor.com reports.

Time to sale:

We’re looking at just 11 days on the market for your typical home. That’s slightly longer than last year, but it’s almost twice as fast as Adams County in general.

Costs:

Northglenn is more affordable than metro Denver in general. Its median house price is $265,800, representing a sizable 14 percent climb over last year, according to Zillow. The median price reported for the metro is $341,400.

Who else made the list?

Colorado Springs’ 80916 follows close behind at No. 4. Also, Southglenn was on the 2015 list, but doesn’t appear this year. Hm.
