Take the leap, make your move to the Mile High City.
It seems more and more people from
other states are moving here, according to a survey taken by Forbes, Denver was
ranked 10th in the top
ten cities people relocate to, which isn’t surprising. Denver has a lot to
offer and continues to improve. There are a lot of attractions, a young vibrant
workforce, and the housing economy is strong. People from all over come to visit
Denver and there is no shortage of attractions. The City and County of Denver’s
second largest industry is tourism and that goes for the
entire state of Colorado. Denver has museums to enrich and appreciate the arts,
like the Denver Museum of Nature & Science
and Denver’s Art museum. There
are a lot of family fun attractions too, like the Denver Zoo, Downtown
Aquarium, and the Children’s Museum of
Denver. Denver’s music scene is also alive and thriving, we get well known bands and artists that come
through all the time. There are also more and more bands that start out here
and get recognized on a national level. Denver has large park systems and is
also close to the Rocky Mountains, where the ski resorts and trails are
plentiful for all outdoor enthusiasts. There are almost too many attractions to
list, so if you are ever planning to come and visit I recommend checking out
this hub of
information. As for a time to come, you can’t really go wrong, Denver
gets over 300 days of sun!
Denver is one of the nation’s
strongest economies. There is no shortage when it comes to the young and
educated workforce that attracts industries of all sorts. Some of Denver’s
largest employers are United Airlines, University of Denver, Quest
Communications, and HealthOne. Denver is
also becoming known as “Napa Valley” of beer, there is more beer being brewed
here than in any other U.S. city! According to the 2010 ALEC-Laffer State
Economic Competitiveness Index Colorado came sixth as the best economic
outlook. By 2030 Metro Denver’s population is anticipated to be around 3.9
million which is a 50% increase! To help with the ever growing population,
Denver continues to expand the light
rail system, making it easier to commute between communities and ease
congestion during peak hours. Denver also continues to improve the quality of
life by continually planning and implementing redevelopment projects. With the light rail expansion,
FasTracks, and all the redevelopment
projects, Denver’s local economy and neighborhoods are benefiting. More and
more local business are sprouting and Denver’s home values are rising. Just
this past year, Denver has seen a 7.5% increase in average sold price for
homes. Houses are a hot commodity right
now, the average days on market is 43 days and that is a 40.2% decrease from
this time last year! Buyers are having to act fast and expect to pay an average
1% increase from list price (all figures according to Metrolist). Seller’s are in a good place right now as more and
more people see the benefit of purchasing houses or condos in Denver.
The Mile High City, has a lot to
offer and holds a bright future for its citizens. There are a plethora of
things to see and do, a strong economy, and a strong housing market. If you are

"We worked with Karen Venier for a relatively short time for a good reason: our home sold at full price within hours of hitting the market! While it’s true that the Denver housing market is “hot,” credit for the speed and ease of our transaction belongs to Karen. She was great to work with, giving us perfect advice about readying our home for sale and then expertly guiding us from offer to close. Along the way, we came to appreciate Karen for her skillful blend of professionalism and personal touches – like dropping off our favorite beverages during a particularly stressful time in our move or shoveling our driveway in subzero temps after we’d left the state (way beyond the call of duty!). Now that we’ve relocated to Wisconsin, we keep saying that we wish Karen could be our buyer’s agent here. Since that’s not possible, we’ll shout her name loudly to whoever might be looking for a home in the Denver area.
Thanks for the great work, Karen!
