I have lived in both cities. I am currently living in Denver, but my husband and I are desperately trying to move back to Austin this summer. It's really a personal choice. We prefer no winters and I absolutely ADORE texas houses. It's a great place to raise a family. Plus, my husband is in the Tech field, so a good place for him to make a career. AND, I am a Texas attorney, so will have the option of going back to work now that my toddler will soon be going off to pre-school.

I live in Denver and don't mind the snow, the 5 degrees in January are bothersome sometimes as I do construction, mainly indoors but I still have to unload and set up my tools. I like the mountains but don't realy ski, just go there in the summer to camp. I grew up in Johnson City (about 50 west of Austin) and traveled to Austin all the time. The music (I also play guitar) is just fabulis, and every resuraunt has outdoor seating and some guy playing guitar. It is HOT in the summer but there are all the lakes with scantely clad Texas girls and lots of out door activities. I'm just tring to make a dessicion on where the best place to make a living and settle down. I know I can buy more house in Austin or a suberb of, then in Denver. I guess I'mjust a little home sick. Help anyone?

Can you really buy more house in Austin than in Denver? I doubt it.

Denver is more expensive, and both cities are becoming unaffordable for most. May 2015 shows Austin median home price at $271k and average price of $348k. Not sure on May, but April in Denver was $314k median and $402k average.
