What to know about moving in Aurora

What is the cost of living in Aurora?

The average monthly cost of living for a resident of Aurora is $1,921, making it only a few dollars cheaper to live in Aurora than Denver where living costs total $1,957.1 These figures include the monthly costs for food, utilities, gas, and each city’s median rent.

Since these numbers are per-person averages, your actual living costs if you move to either city might look a little different, especially if you have dependents or own a house instead of renting.

How much do homes cost in Aurora?

In 2020, the median home value in the Denver-Aurora-Lakewood metro area was $380,900,2 which wasn’t the highest median home value in the country, but it did put Aurora firmly in the top 20 worst cities for first-time homebuyers. Long story short, if you don’t already have a ton of equity in an existing mortgage, you probably can’t afford a home in Aurora.

Unfortunately, this problem only seems to be getting worse. Between 2020 and 2021, the average price for a single-family home in Colorado jumped from $419,532 to $479,127, an increase of 14.2%.3

This increase is part of a larger trend of home prices going up across the country, and Colorado’s increase wasn’t the most drastic, but its homes were already more expensive than many other states where prices went up by similar percentages. All told, Colorado is swiftly becoming an unattainable goal for many people who want to own instead of rent.

Is Aurora growing quickly?

The 2020 population of Aurora was 393,440, making it the third-largest city in Colorado, and it’s currently growing at a rate of 1.21% every year.4 To put this into perspective, Denver’s annual rate of growth is 1.46%,5 Colorado’s yearly growth rate is 1.14%,6 and the US grows by 0.9% in an average year.7

So Aurora is growing faster than both the US and Colorado as a whole, though it isn’t growing as swiftly as Denver.

How much does a local move cost in Aurora?

The average cost for a local move ranges from $550 to $2,000 if you hire professional movers, and it can cost even more if you hire them to pack your house up as well. Renting a moving truck for your local move and doing all the work yourself is much cheaper, and it can cost anywhere between $132 and $336 for the rental rate. For mid-range price and mid-range convenience, use a moving container for your move. This option usually costs $500–$1,500 and your moving company does some of the work for you.
