He's the most pro government anti-government guy I've ever seen.

You can pay $500k for your overpriced home, while I can find something under $300k elsewhere. Enjoy being ripped off, because that's 'hip and cool'.

The market determines housing prices what is a rip off to you is a bargain to some one else. Are you in favor of price controls?

Not at all, prices are just ridiculous here, why do you think people move to cheaper states?

I think the prices are great Denver is an absolute bargain compared to LA or Seattle.

Why do people keep moving here if it's so ridiculous?

Because they come from a more expensive area? Or, they have a job offer or transfer? You tell me.

For a large number of reasons, Denver is where I choose to live at this point in time. And since I come from a more expensive area, I'm thrilled with what my money gets me here. A comparable place (both the physical home as well as the location, schools, proximity to work, etc) would cost me twice what I pay here.

Obviously, if you don't feel that it's worth it to you to live here, then you should move. But as you have seen repeatedly, not everyone shares those sentiments, and not everyone believes that Denver is overpriced for what you get compared with other places with similar amenities, job opportunities, etc.

For sure!

Who can afford $500K homes anyway besides Powerball lottery winners, Justin Bieber, Fortune 100 CEOs, and superstar MLB/NFL/NBA/NHL players.
