We will be relocating to the Denver area from South Florida and will want a new, newer or redone home in the $400k-$700k range--where should we look?

Asked by Gsteve55, Fort Lauderdale, FL Wed Nov 9, 2011

We have no kids and two dogs and are very active in cycling, snowboarding, mountain biking and walking with our dogs but also want to be close to dining, shopping, theatres, sports, etc. We love the Wash Park, Bonnie Brae and Observatory Park areas but fear that prices are out of our range there and we do not want a duplex or townhome. Should we consider the suburbs or outlying towns? Or is it possible to meet our needs in one of the preferred neighborhoods? Thanks for the info!

Hi Gsteve55-

Just another prospective for you! I live and work in the Hilltop, Crestmoor, Mayfair Park, Lowry area. We chose to build a house East of downtown after residing in the Alamo Placita/Denver Country Club area for 18 years.

Our Budget was $750,000 and we were able to accomplish this and built a 4 bed 5 bath custom home with 3600 above grade finished sf. The area has an eclectic mix of homes and is coupled with the redevelopment of the old Lowry Air Force base with all of the benefits of a new development close to the city and all it has to offer.

We chose going East for price point and proximity to the city and the amenities within walking. We have restaurants, coffee, numerous parks, grocery, bike paths and a library all within walking. The commute to the ski resorts is around 90 minutes and I have sold second homes to many people who reside in the Mountains as well. The price point is less than closer to downtown yet has a very urban feel and is a few minutes from Cherry Creek.

Hope this helps.

Let me know if yo would like further information. I can be reached on 303-589-6692 or debtaylor99@comcast.net

Good luck, Denver is a great city and has lots of awesome areas to chose from!

Come immediatly across Yale from Observatory to Wellshire. Wellshire hasn't been "discovered" yet by the real estate community even though there are 30 new homes so far and another 3 under construction. Wellshire has bigger lots than Observatory or Wash Park, Slavens School, and a walk score in the 70's to 80's. See my last new home in Wellshire 3070 S.

Congrats on the move to Colorado! I, myself moved here 12 years ago. There is always something to do in Colorado..it truly is natures playground. I have family in Florida and know you will appreciate the moderate summer temperatures and the lack of hurricanes! I do suggest getting chapstick and lotion as the air is much dryer here. There are a lot of great suggestions on here and I hope that by adding a few more you are not feeling overwhelmed. You didn't mention what age range you are in...that could make a difference in where you want to live. Also, will you be working in Denver? If so, what part of Denver and how long of a commute is too long for you? With your interest in outdoor activities, I would suggest checking out the foothills area. Consider Evergreen, Conifer, Morrison, Lookout Mountain, Idaho Springs, Golden, and Roxborough. You can go to http://www.recolorado.com to check out homes for sale all over Colorado. Check out my website for information on some of these areas and feel free to contact me with any questions. Good luck on your home search.

Hey Gsteve55,

Have you checked out Stapleton? It's still in Denver, but it's brand new, very dog friendly and a ton of amenities.

Here is a blog I recently wrote about a client who bought in Stapleton last year:


Of all the homes I'm sold in Stapleton, I've never had anyone who doesn't love it! Let me know if you need any help check out some more neighborhoods!

We are always sad to lose one of our Florida Natives but I wish you the very best in your relocation to the Denver Area.
Colorado is no stranger to me with it's glorious backdrop to the snow capped mountains that create an endless horizon. My daughter graduated from The Air Force Academy and we had the pleasure to explore all the magnificent places Colorado has to offer. I was particularly impressed with the area called the Valley of the Gods near Colorado Springs. It may come as no surprise to you there are many Floridians that make Colorado their second home. You are in great hands with the realtors on location I found them to be energetic and knowledgeable as they know the twists and turns of their community.

Good Luck
Send me a picture of a sunrise over the snow capped mountains.I will stare at it on those hot Florida Summer Days

I don't know a whole lot about you, but whole heatedly suggest you stay in Denver, skip the burbs, (Golden being an exception). I live in Wash Park and love it, but it is a family community, as is Bonnie Brae and Observatory park. So unless you are thinking of starting a family and want to pay the premium in those areas, consider Platte Park , East Wash Park and Baker. These are neighborhoods that are more affordable yet close to entertainment. There are not as many redone houses, but land with a great upside potential. Just my two cents!

I would share my opinion with you, but so does every one else as well.

Wow! You the man!! Wish I was moving with you!!

I love the Golden Area. I have visited many times. Right at the base of the mountains. Lots of trails, shopping, restaurants and more in the area. Denver is just a short drive.

Choosing the right home, real estate agent and mortgage when buying a home can be hard to do some times. Be sure you get with a real estate person that understands your needs. I always encourage talking with several before you choose who you want to work with.

This is especially important when you are not from the area. The same goes for the mortgage person you work with. You can get a great deal of your work done online before you even look at your first house! Let your mouse do the clicking!

The burbs are great! Love those areas you describe, too. Longmont has commuters to Denver. Interestate 25 makes it doable.

As another agent mentioned, Boulder County is a great place. You can buy a nice home in that price range. I would encourage you to look at Louisville, Lafayette, Boulder and Longmont. Like other Front Range communities, there are biking and walking trails. Boulder has great mountain trails. But, if you like to take them all in when you view mountains, there are great places throughout Boulder County. Entertainment is diverse and there are some great restaurants - especially if you like Italian. My husband and I went to a marvelous restaurant in Estes Park called Sweet Basillica. Did I mention that Estes Park is only a half hour out of Longmont and Boulder. It's great news for anyone who loves the outdoors. You name it, the Estes area has it.

Now about that snowboarding. Eudora is open and waiting. Only about an hour before you're drifting through through powder.

Another thing: The people of Colorado are terrific neighbors.

Call me. I'll share more about this great place called Boulder County.

Congratulations on your upcoming move to Colorado. My family and I relocated here several months ago from the eastcoast and love it here. The relocation across country can seem overwhelming and stressful, so I sympathize what you are going through. Please let me know if you would like a copy of our relocation packet to help you stay organized.

Given the outdoor activities that you mentioned, I am sure you will enjoy the great Rocky Mountain playground! If you are interested in a ski/snowboard pass, check out the Epic Pass http://www.snow.com/epic-pass/passes/epic-local-pass.aspx. I can also provide you with some links to mountain biking trails and resorts that are a blast. I am a big mountain biker myself and was happy to be so close to so much great riding.

Anyway, there are several great neighborhoods that would fit your criteria. I would urge you to look at http://www.denver.org/ for information about Denver and Denver neighborhoods. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about Denver area real estate and all the fun events and activities that are going on this winter.

Hi Gsteve55,

I feel like we have chatted before, your name sounds familiar! None the less, congrats on your upcoming relocation to Denver. I have family in south Florida as well over on Las Olas Blvd.

I think your price point is fully compatible with the areas that you mentioned in your question however I think much of what you will want to do is just be in those areas and get a feel for them in person. The more you move out into the suburbs, the more you will get for your money, however the Wash Park, Bonnie Brae and Observatory Park areas have a special charm to them that you won't find a a normal suburb!

As far as outdoor activities (we moved here from Texas), you will be AMAZED with how beautiful and how many outdoor activity opportunities you will have all within an hours drive at most!

Do you have plans to come to Colorado for a sight visit? If so, I would love to have a cup of coffee with you and answer any questions that you have.

Just find a good Realtor and your transition out here will be amazing!

Best of luck to you!

You may find my neighborhood roll-up report helpful. It shows the median price of homes by neighborhood in central Denver. As you'll see from the report both east and west wash park are well within your range. Actually most of Denver is with the exception of Country Club and Polo Club. If you click on the neighborhood names you will see a graph of the spread of sales over price points for the past 12 months.

I hope that's helpful. Sounds like you know your way around Denver.

Wash Park is not out of your price range at all. You need to expect to see older though (pre-1950s). I wish that I could come out and tell you where to look (the law frowns upon this) but this one is up to you. If you would like to search by price, beds, baths, etc. and then narrow down the areas you like, head over to my website and start searching the Denver MLS.

Well you've certainly gotten your share of advice! One thing none asked is where will you need to go daily, on the assumption that you may be employed. I always suggerst to people relocating is to not live west of your place of employment due to what we call the 'sunshine slowdown'. You'll want to avoid driving toward the sun in the morning and toward the sun in the evening. If taking that into consideration suggests living north or south, I'd add Highlands Ranch to the list of suitable suburbs matching your criteria.
I recently sold my condo in Fort Lauderdale (on the Galt Ocean Mile), and though you're leaving a beautiful city you're also coming to one! Best of luck.

You should definitely be able to find single family homes in Wash Park in your price range. We lived in Wash Park when we first moved here and loved it. It has fairly easy access to mountains, downtown and no park is better than Wash Park. We calculated that we went there at least 180 days a year before we had kids and moved to Stapleton.

Hi Gsteve55:

It appears from your question that you and your family seek an active Colorado lifestyle. In that case you really should consider the Boulder County area. It is true that Boulder City is a little pricey compared to other front range locations, but definitely in your price range. And you can find beautiful homes for less money in other parts of our beautiful county. Additionally, Boulder and nearby cities like Louisville, Lafayette and Erie offer easy access to Denver, in case that is where you or others in your family will work. But, most important for you, Boulder City, Boulder County and Louisville all have exceptional open space and parks programs. In fact, depending on where you live, you probably won't even have to get into your car to bike, hike, walk or even climb, whey the mood strikes you. As for restaurants, Boulder is known for some of the finest in fine dining anywhere, as well as some great casual spots and much in the way of organic and vegetarian cuisine. And if you want to get in a day of skiing at the last minute, a ride up Boulder Canyon to Eldora Ski area (which usually has short lift lines) will satisfy your urge admirably. Eldora is not Vail, but you can ski all day and hardly hit the same trail on two occasions. And the mountains are right here. I once new a person who would leave work on his lunch hour, climb one of the flatirons and be back on the job in time for the afternoon. That's Boulder! At any rate, see the links below for more information. And, if it all sounds too good to be true, give me a call!

Good Luck with your move. You will be able to find homes in your price range in virtually any area of metro Denver. The areas you mentioned will certainly work for you and there is a good selection of homes available to you. Among the areas already mentioned, you might also want to consider the Highlands Ranch/Lone Tree/Parker areas, which are southern suburbs. They have great access to everywhere including the mountains via C-470 to many, many other freeway and highway connections. Highlands Ranch also has miles and miles of connected bike trails and parks. These areas are also very, very friendly places to live. There are other areas like them all over the metro area, Denver is a friendly place. The best way to help you is to determine WHAT you want in a house and try to narrow down WHERE you want the house. I have connected buyers with homes in the metro area for over 40 years. It would be my pleasure to assist you.

I'm a Denver native(since '44). Southeast Denver has always been the most stable part of the metropolitan area. Neighborhoods like Wellshire, Southern Hills, Observatory, Cory Merrill, Bonnie Brae, Wask Park, Cherry Creek. Hilltop, Crestmoor, Mayfair, and Richtoffen have always held their value and stability. New neighborhoods like Stapleton and Lowry(both redeveloped airports) are popular, but don't have any history, or historic architecture, and in my opinion are simply to clustered and hurried. The armed guard at the King Soopers in Stapleton should tell you something. Other newly polular old neighborhoods are Highlands, Sloans Lake, Edgewater and various iteration of Lodo, including Lohi and such. The lodo's and lohi's are experiencing terrible parking problems, and new development is increasing the density even more. Be sure to investigate the crime statistics for these neighborhoods.

Given the range you are looking in there are many areas that would fit your needs. Wash Park is certainly not out of your range depending on the size you are looking for. Boulder might be another area that may interest you. Denver/Boulder is a very active in all the areas that you mentioned are your interest. Wash Park, Stapleton and Boulder give you wonderful access to dining, shopping, etc. The mountains for winter sports is very accessable from anywhere in Denver.

Your price range will allow you to buy in the preferred neighborhoods. It all depends on how much space you need, both inside and out. I just sold a property in Boynton Beach, FL. It was my father's home, and it was hard to sell in the market there. You should know that Denver has not had the drop in prices that southern Florida has experienced. It may be that what you are looking for in a home will force you to look elsewhere. I suggest you design a wish list for your home and give it to a Realtor here to show you what your options would be in the various neighborhoods. My partner and I and our two dogs live in Winston Downs, just south of Lowry (if you know where that is). You get a lot of bang for the buck here - and we are close to parks and trails. Most people want to live either close to where they work or close to where they play.You might love Golden, with the trail along Clear Creek and the easy access to the mountains.
I would be happy to help you if you want to send me your wish list.

The Denver area is beautiful – we came for 2 years and ending up staying. Downtown Denver is (as many cities) has many old parts but with modern apartments mixed in. Older neighborhoods like Wash Park have properties which are over 100 years old, and then you have the sprawling suburbs which offer newer homes for modern day living.

When you move to Denver, jump in the car and absorb the area and homes in them. Like when you walk into a home and you know "this is the one', I think the same applies to an area and neighborhood. When you feel you are closing in, we can narrow the property search down. And (fingers crossed) everything else should fit into place.

I also have a book I would be happy to mail to you which gives all the information on areas.

Hello, i agree with the others. You should be able to find what you are looking for in those area but you may not have as many options. You may have to consider an older home that has been updated. new builds in your areas of choice are going to be on the higher end of that price range and probably a bit higher. it sounds like you are open location and that will really help. Since you are so active you may consider a neighborhood closer the the foot hills like Golden or Applewood. give me a buzz if you would like to discuss in more detail or if you would like me to send you the available homes in the areas you love.

Wash Park would have everything you're looking for, and you can cycle around the park and the dogs would love it. If you want to be a little closer to the mountains but still close to entertainment, Golden or the Green Mountain areas have some excellent options for newer homes.
