Wash Park and Platt Park would both be within 30 minutes and both would be on the light rail line. Highlands/Berkley might be too far, with traffic I'd imagine the commute coud be long.

Highlands would be tough- too far north and not really good alternate access, no light rail either.

YOu could find something on West side of Wash Park or Platte park for that range. Both would also be more convenient to light rail and major highway access. Even if he is in Littleton/west Engelwood, Santa Fe BLvd (major street)would be very convenient from that location

Great. Thanks for you advice. Do you think it would be reasonable to find something in the $300K-$400K range (closer to $300K) in Washington Park or Platte park?

Yes but more likely in platt park. You may be able to find a condo in West Wash Park but SFH in Platt Park.

When I look at the local real estate listings, prices are all over the map -- everything from San Francisco prices to dirt cheap -- the same seems to apply for rents as well.

I think it really depends on if you rae looking at new construction or older homes. New construction is still pricing our REALLY high. Also, make sure you look in West Wash Park and not East or Bonnie Brae- I could see how you would think of Bay Area prices... although I'm not sure if they are getting them yet.

I think we would be interested in one of the older craftsman bungalows.
