Myself and my significant other are thinking of relocating this November/December from busy Houston, Tx to Colorado. We aren't quite sure where the best spot to relocate would be.. Any suggestions?

About us:

Rent Budget is between 1000-1300

Wanting a 2 Bedroom, 1 to 2 bathrooms

Really want a fenced in yard as well

There may not be enough info there to really give you a key-on suggestion. Based on the price you listed and 420 interest, etc., I might suggest looking at the city of Pueblo.

Pueblo for sure, and maybe COLO SPGS, but that budget won't go all that far in Denver these days.

Take a look at Lakewood and Golden. Try to figure what you like & dislike about them. Then use that criteria to find a better place or increase your focus on these 2. Don't like these 2? Give more clues about what you are looking for or make your own guesses and dig into forum / other resources to evaluate them.

Reno, NV. 420 friendly. Lower COL for proximity to jobs. Good mountain access.

Wait, have you BEEN to Colorado? It's kind of a big state with very different areas. You might want to visit first, and stay a few days in mid winter too. Bring lots and lots of money with you. $1,000 a month for rent won't get you much. Anyway, good luck to you.

MammaMaddy, I suggest that you look around on-line for lab tech jobs and salaries. I would imagine that they would be located in the larger population areas, such as Denver, Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Ft. Collins, and Grand Junction. Unfortunately, the state of Colorado is very popular right now, and rents are sky high. You should spend some time reading through the many posts on this forum to get acquainted with these different areas.

If you find jobs in Colorado Springs, for example, then you can start looking around at what you can afford with your housing budget. That will give you an idea if this move to Colorado really could be worthwhile for you. As others have said, your budget is very low for what you are seeking.
