Littleton, Colorado is a southwestern suburb of Denver, bordering and encompassing the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. As the population of the Denver metropolitan area expands, so do Littleton’s communities. New home construction continues throughout the city with several ongoing and planned developments. With plenty of desirable space and available land, it seems that new construction in the city is likely to continue in the long term. The home resale market is doing well as home sale prices have steadily increased over the past several years.
