Default SF market is tight

Wow!
One or both of you get(s) to have a crappy commute.
Single family house rentals in greater Denver are in very short supply.
PadMapper.com is the place to start.

You could find that rent in the southeastern suburbs(parts of Aurora, Parker, etc) for a SFR with a yard. Commute to Commerce City would leave a lot to be desired, but easy enough to Lone Tree. Granted, Aurora is pretty big and the northern parts are pretty close to Commerce City, not sure about desirability of those areas though.

I'd look in Denver somewhere with decent highway access. Although most posters here seem to live in the 'burbs, most of Denver is single-family homes, often with nice character and located along tree-lined streets. You could go north and your wife south. But I-25 is congested at rush hour - not sure if it would be a bit easier going against the majority of commuters (who are coming into the city).

I don't know if I-225 is any better than I-25 - its all congested.

Are either jobs near transit? Can one of you telecommute occasionally? This may determine who wants to live closer to work!

Try Padmapper and focus your search around the I-225/I-25 area or around I-225 and Parker Rd.

The commute to Lone Tree would be very easy, and your wife could even probably take Light Rail to work.

Your commute would be I-225 to I-70 to I-270. It is actually not that bad.

I am interested in what the traffic is like. I have heard that traffic is heavy in Denver. Currently I drive 35 miles into Phoenix and it takes 1hr. My wife drives later in the morning and it takes her about 45min to drive 21 miles.
Is traffic heavier in Denver? I realize snow will add issues on some days but you should see what rain does to phoenix! LOL
