How is the real estate market in Denver area now?
Please PM with any news that you can pass on to me.

Thank you,

* A lot more to do outdoors
* Very clean city in comparison
* Crime appears non-existent- at least in Castle Rock
* People are at least semi-friendly
* good public transportation
* views everywhere
* great place to raise a family
* cost of living is MUCH cheaper, I mean not even close. Whoever said Denver is more expensive must have lived in the ghetto in South FL. Utilities are much cheaper, gas is cheaper, car insurance is cheaper, you will laugh at how cheap home insurance is, property taxes are laughably cheap also in comparison, housing is cheaper in general- you get a LOT more house for the same money and you may even be able to afford a house with a yard.

Feel free to drop me an email if you want some further insight.

We just relocated from Littleton to South Florida. I'm originally from NC and just never could get used to Denver weather and the dry plains landscape, among other things. That's what's great about the US, though, something for everybody.

Although I love Colorado, the desert and brownness isn't exactly my cup of tea either. My preference would be more green, but without the dreary rain of the Pacific NW. I keep thinking there's got to be a happy medium somewhere. A place with a tolerable number of rainy days and without the sweltering summer humidity of the South.

Though not quite as sunny as most place in Colorado, the 2 places below are greener than most of Colorado and not nearly as humid as the eastern US and Canada, nor nearly as rainy as the Pacific Northwest.

Coeur d'Alene Idaho receives about 26 inches of annual precipitation.

Ashland Oregon receives about 20 inches of annual precipitation

I was thinking that or northern CA. I haven't spent much time in either place.

Excellent. Thanks for listing these. I'll have to visit them sometime.
Isn't Cor d'Alene very cold in the winter, though?

Will be lloking to move (hopefully) within the next year.
Have done some minor research and was looking at the following areas:
Lakewood, Arvada, Wheat Ridge. Possibly: Louisville.
Not real sure how the IT job market is in Denver.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,

LaFrench

Will be looking to move (hopefully) by end of 2010.

Can anyone give me some ideas of nice family-oriented places within 25 miles of Downtown Denver or PM with some search training as I am starting to learn more and more how to use City-Data.
Not real sure how the IT job market is in Denver. Here in Tampa, the legal field is big for IT jobs.
Would Denver be the same or will IT be available in other markets? If so, what other markets should I be looking into?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

LaFrench

Since you are learning more and more how to use City Data you should stop asking to have your responses PM'd... there are others that may be interested in the responses either now or in the future... If your information was PM'd then the whole point of this board is lost.
