I do not understand.
In the City & County of Denver or not?
What is the tax history over the last decade?

Exactly. Manhattan in NYC is a much better deal (cheaper) than Denver is today.

Have you actually rented / bought a place in Manhattan to make these claims?

It's a rhetorical question, it is obvious you never have

Any property in Manhattan you can buy for cheaper than an equivalent property in Denver, I'll buy it from you immediately for 20% more. Deal?

Manhattan Kansas perhaps? Not NYC.

The Little Apple, as it's known. Houses are cheap, but then you'd have to live there

A $500,000 house with 20% down is a $400,000 loan that will cost you about $2,000 a month or $24K a year plus taxes and insurance. I hardly think you need to be making $1M a year to afford that. Hell, you can probably afford that on less than $100K a year if you plan well.
I'm pretty far into "not sure if serious" regarding someone having an income of $1,000,000 to afford a $500,000 house "comfortably". By that same logic, if your household income is $70,000, then you can only afford a $35,000 house "comfortably".

I just moved to DEN from LA for work and have been really impressed so far. Tons of bars, hot young chicks, ample parking, mild weather, tons of biking and parks. And I'm on reverse traffic flows so there's no traffic to work! My rent is fine for my wage - just stay out of LoHi as its like 1500 a month for a 1 br.

I love LA but DEN has been a refreshing eye opener. We will see if it gets old.
