Another poster I won't name was claiming 180,000 people moved out of the state last year. The poster failed to mention that at the same time over 220,000 people moved here.

I often look at Redfin to get an idea of what my house might be worth. In my opinion they are more accurate than Zillow.

Bennett would be a terrible option for a huge development. A lot of people moving here want to be next to or near the foothills. Bennett is in the plains and boring.

I look on Redfin/Zillow weekly to see what my home is worth and what I could buy else where. So that article is dumb.

That said, a mega development East is probably the most likely place to build cheap housing. But after 5 yrs those values will increase and the 1st ones in will look else where for a more desirable place to live. From someone that lived in PA and south east....Anything East of I25 sucks...just flat and boring. There is no reason to move to CO just to live way out there. I moved as close to the foot hills as I could, its the draw.

Anything east of I25 is flat and boring and will sell out quick.

Not to mention, some of the best views of the mountains are out east. At Parker & Havana, you can almost see the entirety of the metro. Alameda and Dayton has a stunning vista of downtown and the northern Front Range. Youíre literally going uphill from downtown to the east metro; I know, I have biked it many a time.

I think that area is the exception. I have some family off of Smoky Hill and E470 and it is pretty hilly over there. There are some great mountain views there.

The NYT has an article today about Denver housing

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/29/b...gtype=Homepage

"Yet, Denver’s once-soaring housing market has run into turbulence. Sales and construction activity have slowed in recent months. Houses that would once have drawn a frenzy of offers are sitting on the market for days or weeks. Selling prices are rising more slowly, and asking prices are being slashed to attract buyers."

That's been my anecdotal experience as well. It used to be rare to see any homes (decent ones at least) that were on the market for more than a few days, now I'm seeing more and more listings for fairly nice homes stay up longer.
