Josh,

My family has lived in the Whittier Neighborhood since the mid 50's. We have seen amazing changes and growth. It has gone from a questionable neighborhood to one of the most desired and respected areas in the city over the past 15 - 20 years. Mostly turn of the century homes, many of which have had major restoration done. There is now some new construction in the area as well. Close to downtown and everything that Denver has to offer. Great transportation and close to light rail. A great neighborhood to consider for many reasons.

Any place with architecture is good with me. Death to track homes, bilevels and trilevels!

This is truly a diverse neighborhood. Traditionally a black neighborhood, as the homes in other areas became less affordable over the past 20 years, the neighborhood has seen in influx of Hispanic and white buyers. The area supports nice parks, mom and pop businesses, the convenience of being minutes to downtown and affordable housing. This neighborhood is a wonderful place to call home.

I love the Whittier Neighborhood. It reminds me of the N. Park Hill area 10 years ago. Still affordable and gaining value. It would be a great place to buy and keep that home as a rental.

Beautiful neighborhood. When it comes to Architecture and Mature Landscape Whittier is in line with Washington Park, Highland neighborhood at a much fair price.

I had seen the prices peaked mid of 2013 but have come down from the high make it more affordable for buyers and fairly priced for sellers.

Certainly, there is tons of potential for the neighborhood and for buyers to ride the wave to sweet equity.

Great neighborhood becoming more and more popular with younger buyers. Beautiful older homes there with tons of potential.

It's very popular among buyers, who like older homes, urban lifestyle and close proximity to Downtown.

We lived in the Whittier Neighborhood for many years and loved it. The diversity and character in people and homes is wonderful as well as the proximity to downtown. It does have it's challenges, at times, just like any area, but it has a true neighborhood feel that keeps me coming back to visit years after we moved away.
