You can bid what you want but the builder will counter if they don't accept your price. Make sure you use a Realtor, builder contracts can be tough.

You have got to do this kind of research and find the areas and schools that fit your needs then find a Realtor to help you find the best deal in that area. Fair housing laws do not allow Realtors to steer people into areas based on this information. What is a good school to you is different that what is a good school to someone else the same goes for areas and types of homes etc. I wish you luck but you have got to do the research on your own, a local Realtor can only guide you to where to get the info you seek.
Good luck

This is a question for a pest control expert. The problem is that mice, like many pests don't stay put. They move around inside the walls and can force their little bodies through some very small holes around plumbing and other parts of the mechanical systems. As a result, they can move between apartments. You may have to lean on the management company a little harder to get them involved. If the problem is severe (or bad and getting worse) there may be rules in your city. You might want to call the local health officials since mice can carry disease.

From an economist's standpoint: Yes.

From the individual's standpoint: It depends.

And keep in mind that the recession is much, much more than real estate sales. How about employment? How about industrial output? How about GDP? How about new unemployment claims? How about retail sales?

And keep in mind that Newsweek is not the final word on the economy.

Joetta Fort answered:
Did you know that real estate agents can't say whether an area is 'good' or 'bad', without the risk of getting in some pretty serious trouble? We are supposed to avoid 'steering' people into or out of particular neighborhoods, because there has been such awful abuse of the system in the past. We can answer questions such as how much is this house worth? Are houses in this neighborhood going up in value or down? What percentage of distressed sales have there been? What is the absorption rate? How many days on market is the average for this neighborhood? 'Good' and 'bad' are qualitative issues, and you should make those determinations for your self. Check school quality reports, crime reports, look at nearby business and commercial zones - are they bustling or full of empty buildings? Stroll the neighborhood on the weekend and talk to residents as they are out and about. ... more

Hi Beverly,

It depends on the other details of the house such as street address. You can also try but that will only give you values for apartment rentals.

Call me if you would like a more specific estimate of the value of your particular property. With this information I will be able to give you a more specific and realistic possible rent for your property.

Stuart Dobson answered:
The need is definately there, but with the Charter schools and speciality schools we've worked with, they all seem to be looking in other areas right now. It seems to be a combination of suitable space and price preventing new schools coming into the area.

The situation could change with the right school buyer/developer however.

I haven't had any direct experience with home sales in the inspiration point area, but it you would like MLS sold info or to be put in contact with a Realtor who has, contact me directly.

John Keene answered:
I think Cole/Whittier presents a great opportunity. It's close to downtown Denver and LoDo, there is easy access to the expressways, and eventually the light rail will extend through the neighborhood. The revitalization currently occurring in Five Points is a good example of what can happen in the surrounding areas like Cole/Whittier and Curtis Park.

Are you looking to invest in rental property or are you looking to become an owner occupant? Either way, give me a call so we can discuss you plans.

Voices Member answered:
There aren't that many townhomes, condos, or apartments in the Highlands area. There are a lot being built but they aren't rentals. There may be owners wanting to rent and there are usually half-duplexes and single family homes for rent . The best way to find those is to drive around the neighborhood. Also, I would check in the North Denver Tribune that comes out on the first and third Thursdays of the month, and Westword. If you don't live in the area now, let me know, and I'll see what I can do to help. Westword has an online version, but the North Tribune doesn't. ... more

Warren Petracek answered:
Yes it does. There are neighborhoods close to downtown Denver - notable the Uptown district, LoDo (Lower Downtown), neighborhoods SE of Downtown Denver -Lowrey & Congress Park, NW of Downtown - the Highlands, SW of Downtown - Platte Park and NE of Downtown - Stapleton Re-development District .
Depending on your budget these are all options for you to consider....of course the more inner city areas are more pricey. These offer the options of single family homes, attached homes & condos/aprartments.

If you would like more specific information on the areas, and the market, please don't hesitate to contact me. Of course, I can send you listings all over via e-mail.
