Home building in Windsor is spurred on by growth in real estate in the area. The influx of affluent residents seems to be driving the market. Real estate values in the area have continued to climb along with new construction. There is a large percentage of home ownership in the town. The emphasis on single-family homes in new construction continues to attract parents with children.
In spite of its growth, residents of Windsor still find it easy to congregate and build social ties. These school districts reflect their community’s academic values. The family-friendly atmosphere fosters strong social ties and civic involvement. An above average proportion of residents telecommute from their homes (11%) while many others own home-based businesses. This definitely puts a new spin on the term "bedroom community".
There are Windsor subdivisions such as High Point Estates and water Valley that contain both single-family homes and condominiums. Other subdivisions such as Grove Park and Lighthouse Point also have townhouses and lofts. In 2013, homes are still being built in subdivisions such as High Point Estates and Highland Ridge. Homebuilders such as D. R. Horton and Brocc Builders are continuing developments within the city. Any family thinking of settling down in a growing Colorado community should think about Windsor.
