Northglenn, Thornton, Wesminster, Lafayette, Louisville are all surrounding close by areas. I really love Broomfield, it is a great place to grow up (I grew up just outside of Broomfield in Westminster near Jeffco Airport)

Yeah, sorry for the misspelling. I caught that after I posted, but I could not seem to edit the title. Thanks for the response.

Looking for 3 Bedroom house with rent no more than $1200. Not sure I'll get that as I'm aware cost of rental and housing in general is a good measure higher than Arkansas.I pay about $850 monthly for a simple but clean and nice 3 bdroom 1400 sqft house here. For now I'm only looking to rent. If everything is agreeable long term, once I get a good feel for what area we really like... then we will look to purchase. I'm in the IT field and I have thus far preferred to rent given the convenience of being able to relocate when opportunity presents (plus it's just smart given the cheap rent available here, enabling me to build savings). I am willing to purchase a higher end home than I would pay to rent when the time comes. I am looking for value in a rent house (certainly don't want a dump, trashy neighborhood, or an inconvenient commute). But I'd rather bypass the cost involved in a higher end rent house in order to add monthly savings for a down payment for my own property.

Another question. Any accountants have input on the job market for CPA's in the area? My wife is a CPA and will look to resume her career a few months after the new baby arrives. I really appreciate all of the help. This is a big decision for us and we want to hit all of the angles before we commit one way or the other.

You might be able to find an older home in Broomfield or Lafayette in your price range. Try craigslist and the ususal sources for rentals.

What would you consider to be the better places to live in the surrounding areas?
Why would you throw your money away in those areas unless you worked in those areas?

Not really sure what you mean here. I am not looking to throw money away. My position is such that I would only need to commute to work 1 time a week. That being said, I don't want a long commute, but I don't have to live within 5 minutes of where I work either.

If you are going to work in Broomfield, there are many options within a 15-20 min. commute. Louisville, Superior, parts of Westmnister, Northglenn, Thornton, and of course, Broomfield itself.
