The Fort Collins real estate market is booming: it seems like even despite the challenges of a pandemic, everyone wants to live here and there aren't enough homes to go around.

That must be why real estate agents in this area are paid well: there's never a shortage of customers. According to a recent study from Inspection Support Network, Colorado ranks 4th on the list of best-paying states for real estate agents.

Colorado Springs and Grand Junction are the top-paying small and midsize metros for real estate agents in our state, with Denver-Aurora-Lakewood coming in second as the top-paying large metro.

Why is Colorado ranking so high? The study ranked the average wage for real estate agents, coming in at an $74,404, compared to our cost of living and the concentration of real estate agents in our area. For the full rundown, head here.
