With the American economy struggling to recover, and foreclosures going up again in July, many people would think that there aren’t any strong housing markets in the country.  Well, BusinessWeek magazine would beg to differ, as they have compiled a list of the 10 strongest U.S. housing markets.  And, there’s good news for mountain enthusiasts- beautiful Boulder, Colorado has topped the list.  The city has controlled its growth by putting limits on development–couple that with the wonderful boundary of the Rocky Mountains, which restricts the supply of new home construction.  In addition, Boulder is home to strong employers like the University of Colorado, and it has an abundance of affluent residents–not to mention the fact that it’s close by to some of the best ski and snowboard spots in the world!
