BOULDER, Colo., March 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Boulder is the happiest, healthiest place to live

in the United States, according to the recently released Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index. Asked to assess their jobs, finances, physical health, emotional state of mind and communities, interviewees revealed that this
mountain town is at the top of their list.

Where do all of these happy, healthy people actually live in Boulder? Looking for a home that exemplifies their healthy values, many interested buyers in Boulder are turning to communities such as The Peloton, between 33rd and 38th Streets off Arapahoe Ave., to fit their active lifestyle, health-conscious habits, and financial health as homeowners.

Financially, The Peloton has proven itself a smart purchase. Between first-time homeowner incentives, FHA loans, market-leading pricing and a rebounding housing market, savvy homebuyers are seizing the opportunity to purchase while the value proposition is high. The Peloton has remained one of the top-selling developments in Boulder with 12 sales since November alone.

Because The Peloton is FHA approved, eligible buyers can purchase a home with just 3.5% down, rather than the more typical 10-20%. This could mean a down payment as low as $8000 for some homes. Factor in the $8000 federal tax credit for first-time homebuyers and out-of-pocket costs are minimal. Interested first-time buyers must sign a sales contract by April 30 and close by June 30 in order to be eligible.

The Peloton caters to homeowners' physical health through their walkable location and onsite facilities, favorable for both outdoor and indoor activities. The community center includes a 6,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art fitness center featuring cutting-edge cardio and weight-training equipment, a spinning and yoga studio and everything in between.

The community's central location lends itself to effortless travel, with shopping, dining and entertainment within walking distance and the beautiful Flatirons only a few minutes down the road. In fact, several residents have forgone cars altogether in favor for biking to work or using the cities robust RTD bus system. Homeowners receive a free EcoPass in their HOA, which provides unlimited usage of RTD services.

The true benefit to life at The Peloton, and perhaps the biggest reason Boulder people are so happy, is the sense of community and ability to live, work and socialize with like-minded people. The Peloton community is a close-knit group of homeowners that gather regularly for happy hours, book clubs and committees. The Sustainability Committee meets frequently to discuss and actively pursue environmental health, a value shared by many in the Boulder community.

With health being a major contributor in the happiness level of each individual, it's no wonder Boulder was named the happiest city in the world. Homeowners want a place that supports and facilitates their choices. The Peloton community seems to do just that for Boulder residents. Plus, did we mention their year-round heated rooftop pool? Now that is happiness.
