If you want better help, give us better information.

Where is the job? (just saying "Denver" is not helpful)
How much commute time is acceptable?
What is your budget?
How much house do you want?
What do you want in a neighborhood (lot size, character, urban/suburban)?
In which grades are the kids?
Public or private schools?
That actually seems like a steal. The house next door to me in Stapleton is renting for $4300 a month, not quite as big as this one. And Country Club is a better location.

Yeah, we don't "slop sugar" and genuflect before a GW Bush statue on the way out the door every morning.

Boston huh? Now I get it

I agree... we're more Western than "Northern". Someone moving to Denver from L.A. wouldn't experience culture shock in Denver, but someone coming from the South or Northeast might.

Agreed, going LA -> Denver would be more of a weather shock than culture Especially if someone hadn't lived in snow country before...

Denver is more known as a western city than northern. Northern city is Minneapolis and Green Bay.

Agree, that seems like a pretty nice place. I am surprised something in Stapleton would be going for $4300 a month, TBH.

Oh oh, that's me! And to make it even more interesting, we're moving in February. We like a challenge

Also, had to buy coats in preparation and boots. Should be fun!

It's still technically in the north, and it's climate is more like the north than the south, that's for sure.

With respect to the above, I don't want to put words into Sunderpig2's mouth, but I think I know what he/she is trying to get at. As someone who is from Texas and recently relocated back after 15 years away (most recently in Denver), I think there is an overall friendliness and warmth in Texas (and the South in general) that I found lacking in Denver. We loved Denver, and thought the people were nice overall, but there was also a feeling of insularity and even aloofness when you encountered strangers, whereas in Texas, strangers will regularly engage you in conversation. It's something I immediately noticed when I moved back here and it struck me how much different Denver was.

OTOH, one thing to me that is similar between the two is the overall attitude of appreciation for people who work hard, take risks and succeed based on those attributes of independence. I think those are very much shared "Western" ideals.
