Hi Ben,

Congrats on transplanting from Texas to Colorado! My husband and I did the same (from Austin, TX) a couple years ago and have loved our new state.

As for differences in homes, we definitely did not have basements in Texas whereas most of the homes here in Colorado do have basements. Be sure to note this as you are looking at homes online and you see square footage numbers. It is tricky though because not all agents list the square footage of a home (including the basement) correctly.

For us, we took a site visit and drove different areas that we were interested in before narrowing down our search. I would definitely be mindful of your job and about how far you want to be away from work.

As far as schools, I am not as familiar with Boulder since I live in the South Metro Denver area, but I do know that Cherry Creek and Douglas County schools are very reputable systems.

Let me know if you'd ever like to chat over the phone or have a quick coffee when you get here!

Hello Ben,
You probably are discovering that Denver-Boulder area homes do have basements. In your price range, you should find what you need.

And the area has some very good schools.

BTW: The Cherry Creek and Boulder school districts have an excellent reputation. Longmont's Silver Creek and Niwot schools rank up there.

If you need help finding a home in my area, I would be happy to assist.

Hi Ben:

You should probably look somewhere near your new job. There are a lot of great communities in the Denver area from Centennial to Westminster where you can get a home that would work for you. You probably will have the most time for your home project if you work close enough that you will not need to spend too much time in the car.

I'll be happy to answer any questions.

Kind regards,

Hi Ben,
Maybe rent for a while. Then you can explore your options and find a good house in the ideal location. Good Luck
