Yesterday went to AAA Metric in N Denver for some auto parts and Tire Rack Warehouse east of there. i was driving about 40th av near i70 and traffic was grid locked. just is what it is i guess but not impressed. i drove back to Denver proper via Martin Luther King w/o issue. tho.


Keep in mind i70 will be under construction from i25 to Penna for the next few years.


thinking it is not going to get any better.

I had not heard of this 4 day week and we are in Adams County so I looked it up. It seems that is a specific district called 27J.

In our area we have Adams County 5 Star Schools. We have both Broomfield and Westminster area for the elementary - Meridian Elementary. I believe all are on a normal schedule.

Adams 27j = Brighton Thornton, commerceCity
Adams county always had a high employee count compared to their population. The property taxes there are high for what you get. Along those lines the associated school district 27j came up with the 4day idea after their 2017 mill Levey was rejected. Just by the looks of things they are still building schools like mad there.

I live in Westminster Adams County and our property taxes always seem low compared to newer neighborhoods. The newer neighborhoods in all counties seem to have special assessments and higher taxes to pay for infrastructure. It is definitely a good idea for a buyer to compare property taxes when looking at homes. They can vary wildly for similar priced property even in the same city and county.

property taxes are on a upward spiral so when your re evaluation time comes you till be thanking the baby jesus for TABOR limits.
what your taxes are depends on your very local neighborhood and where you are in the re evaluation cycle.


I really thinks the OP should consider areas like Brighton

Yard size is going to limit your options just about anywhere in Denver regardless of budget. I think you could have enough space and feel less isolated with 1/3 of an acre, which really opens up your options.
There are no 1 acre lots in Louisville, and few if any 1/2 acre lots. 10,000 sf, 1/4 acre, is considered a huge yard there. There are a few of those, but the houses are older w/o being particularly "charming". Plus, the drive to DIA is hellacious, at any time of day or night.

Not Westminster, drive is about as bad as Louisville. Actually, it's the same drive, just a little farther east. Plus, I am not familiar with any big lot neighborhoods there.

I doubt someone with a $1m budget is going to avoid E-470 because of the cost. I don't use it often due to my location but when I have its been wonderful every time with no traffic and its high speed limit. Makes getting to the airport a breeze. I'd focus on homes near it, especially if your times of going to the airport include any part of rush hours.

I wouldn’t use it for a daily commute
