My husband is looking at employment in Lakewood. We currently live in MN so I'm trying to get an idea of a good area to live. I've been looking north, Brighton, Henderson, Westminster, broomfield but my husband worries these communities will be too long of a commute for him. We have three young kids so good schools are important. I prefer a smaller community that's friendly for young families. We need 4 bedrooms and a max of 275k. What towns in the Lakewood area would be for us?

Default Colorado is different

1. There are no "towns". Colorado is either:
a. cities (and yes, I know about Bow Mar, Columbine Valley, Foxfield, etc.)
b. unincorporated county

2. By Lakewood, I presume you mean the Fed Center.
Lots of cities and county nearby.
Brighton and Henderson do not qualify as nearby.

3. Postal addresses are not meaningful. Just look at Englewood. City and ZIP codes.

4. The median price in Denver is $300K. You are going to pay more than you want. Think 50% more.

5. The real estate market is berserk. Houses going in 2 days for over asking. You are going to pay more than you want.

6. You need to find a good buyer's agent who can help. (And, this is coming from someone who despises the real estate agent class in general.) You are going to pay more than you want.

7. The school systems are huge. Think 70K students. The best are Boulder Valley and Cherry Creek.
