"you have to be in the know to know."

LOL, how can you debunk it when the person that posted above you agreed with me and they lived there..

Glad you have better things to do this morning besides replying to these silly posts.

Actually yes, I did see some houses about 4 months ago I really liked, nice and new, actually have yards, lots of sq footage, nice designs but because they were in SE Aurora I wouldn't consider them. I would live there is they renamed it Bear Butt or Deer Droppings Colorado vs Aurora.

There are some radio show inthe morning, I don't know the DJ's names but they were talking and the one said oh you live in Aurora and the other DJ said no, SE Aurora. Vegaspilgim who states that claim is false and only ignorant, racist, snobby people think that.. colorado must be full of them then.

Where ever it comes from, the fact that we're discussing it, and not for the first time, tells us that it exists. That alone would make me reluctant to buy a house there because when it comes time to sell, you'll have people like the one cutting your hair who won't even consider your house. I've driven around SE Aurora/Centennial and hung out at Southlands Mall. It looked like a fine place. But if the potential buying pool is limited by the name on the mailing address, that's going to make it harder to sell.

This is crazy, but EscapeCalifornia is correct. We're talking about this once again, so the stigma exists. It's so funny that a mailing address is such an issue. Also, those 80015 addresses in Centennial are Aurora addresses, officially, according to the USPS. Centennial is just a secondary 'acceptable' city name for that ZIP, so if I sent someone a package or letter and wrote the address as 'Aurora, CO 80015' even though they live in Centennial, it would arrive at the correct place. Everyone worried about mailing addresses should sell their homes NOW!

This thread is closed as it's nothing but a troll fest.

There have been no FACTS presented to support such broad-brushed negative opinions of an entire area that is almost the same size in area (142.5 square miles) as the city of Denver itself (153.4 square miles).

I've had to close threads before that gratuitously bash Highlands Ranch, Pueblo, Aurora, etc. I don't get why some people find it necessary to bash certain areas and EVERYONE in them. If it ain't your cup of tea, stay the hell away, shut up and move on to other topics.
