mckenna.scro…, Home Buyer in Denver, CO

What do you think about northeast park hill vs Lincoln park neighborhoods. Preferably I was looking at five points but houses are not in my price rang

Asked by mckenna.scroggs, Denver, CO Fri Jul 4, 2014

Crime rates in northeast park hill aren't very appealing and a lot of the houses north of MLK look exactly the same but are still cute. South of MLK home prices are drastically more, but houses are all different. Will that be bad for resale to buy a house that is exactly like the neighbors and do you see the neighborhood picking up with the possibility of home value increasing? thanks!

Lincoln Park and NE Park Hill are two very different neighborhoods. Overall, Lincoln Park is going to have more appeal since it is accessible via light rail and located very close to downtown. However, Lincoln Park will probably give you less house for your money and many of the homes were built around 100 years ago, which could lead to bigger maintenance issues. NE Park Hill has been improving, but it is further away from downtown and shopping, which means demand will be a bit slower. The homes have appeal, but there is an excessive supply of blonde brick ranch houses, which is why it feels a bit cookie cutter. The area between Monaco and Quebec seems to be coming along nicely with the addition of Station 26 Brewery and its proximity to Stapleton.

Good luck with your search!

Also, have you looked at the East Colfax neighborhood. It is similar price-wise to NE Park Hill, but there is a bit more variation in housing styles. Not a lot of inventory available at the moment, but that is the case throughout the metro area.
