How Colorado became one of the least affordable places to live in the U.S. - Nov. 1, 2017

Good read although as anyone on the forum knows, pot is really the culprit.

Is pot really the culprit? Pot is legal in more states now. Even CA. A good marketing campaign by the chamber of commerce is probably to blame if blame is the right word. The fact that Denver invests in infrastructure like Public Transportation, Highways, and Schools helps. So does a good quality of life compared to where people are moving from. A diversified economy is a better economy. Company relocations have added to Denver's population growth more than anything.

No pot is not the culprit. There is a contingent on this forum who insist that it is despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. I was just trolling my own thread.

That was tongue in cheek. Pot is definitely not the culprit. Yes, it has had a minor impact but as skydog said there are some on here that said it is a big reason if not the only reason Colorado is booming. It is quite funny.

Default Lydia DePillis is a moron

Shallow, crap article.
Mentioning tiny, insignificant Globeville. Population of 3500.
Property taxes are capped? Who knew. (Someone who doesn't understand TABOR, state taxes and local taxes.)
"height restrictions that protect views in mountain towns" which has a huge impact on housing in Lakewood.

The only sensible statement in the entire article: "the state added about 570,000 net new people between 2009 and 2016"

I was wondering about about that on the taxes. Should have read property taxes cannot go up without a vote.
