I realize that may be a pipe dream in most cities these days, but are there any "intown" areas of Denver where you can still get a fixer upper for the low 200s?

Schools not really an issue, access to public transit is a good thing.

Maybe in the Barnum neighborhood or the area just west and south of it. It's not too far from the West light rail or downtown.

Sun Valley. A complete dump of a neighborhood.

Wait until the bubble bursts in a few years.

Any proof? Or just wishful thinking?

Recently I've been hearing whispers of the housing bubble is close to bursting nation wide not just in denver(which I am looking forward to because that means I can afford a house there in the future) but Thats not the only thing thats going to fail, so beware it may not be all sunshine and rainbows when that market goes belly up.

Whispers are not truths.

Wishes do not magically happen.

There is no proof of a bubble.

There are no small indicators of a bubble.

Real estate is a game. You have to play to win. If you are not playing, you will not win.

The thing about this alleged bubble bursting that everyone who is sitting on the sidelines seems to forget is that a real estate bubble doesn't happen in a vacuum. It typically will come in tandem with job losses, wage cuts, and other things that could cause these people to not be able to afford a home later either. Hoping for a bubble to burst unless you are sitting on a pile of cash is typically foolish.

There is no housing bubble. The only way home prices will drop in Denver would be if the local economy fell off a cliff.

There might be a tech bubble. There could also be a weed bubble. If the weed bubble bursts you might be able to buy a dispensary for a decent price.
