Why did you leave off the unincorporated areas of Jefferson, Arapahoe and Douglas Counties? They are suburbs, too.

"Housing stock" as in the quantity and quality of houses that are currently on the market?

Is COL a consideration?

You forgot Lone Tree, Foxton.

Highlands Ranch & Ken Caryl are city sized subdivisions.

Either or both.

Sure, you can add COL into consideration. Highlands Ranch is big enough to be a suburb. Lone tree I didn't include, but can anyways.

The quality of the house would be, updated appliances, granite counter tops, ceramic tile floors, energy efficient windows, 3 car garages, big patio. Those would be considered amenities to the house, which increases the value of the home.

Mountain View, Lakeside and Glendale are small enough to be included in the surrounding suburban areas.

There are very few houses in Glendale & Lakeside. I have never viewed or sold a house anywhere in Glendale, Mountain View or Lakeside.

I would also not think that Glendale is a suburb. It is surrounded by Denver. It is as urban as Denver.

Updated housing stock has nothing to do with the "better" suburbs.

What makes a good suburb IMNSHO has more to do with how the local government treats the citizens. Like Greenwood Village will pay for a resident to take a rec program somewhere else if they do not offer it.

Granite countertops cannot be mandated by city government.
