I have found Evergreen on the map and the pictures of this location looks like what I am looking for. However, I know nothing about the place. I live in Florida and I hate it here. I am from PA and have been wanting to move west for some time now.

Are there apartments for rent?
What is the job market like?
What is the cost of living?


Can anyone tell me anythign about it?

We also live in Florida and hate it. Cant believe we left such a beautiful place! I grew up in and around Evergreen. The schools are great and crime is almost non existent. But it has grown so much its not quite a small town any more. They now have all the amenities like Walmart, Home Depot, fast food and even a hotel. Malls and bigger city stuff are just a short jont down the mountain 20 minutes or so. The bummer is that Evergreeen is really a wealthy community and its not easy to find an affordable home thats not an old cabin. You could look into the surrounding towns, Kittredge, Indian Hills, Tinny Town, Conifer, Baily, and Aspen Park. We just went back last Christmas for a visit and took tons of pics but my computer crashed and I lost them all. We are also looking to move back too! Best of luck!

Oh sorry forgot about your questions. I think you would be quite lucky to find an appt to rent. You could try looking up the local newspaper, Canyon Courier and search the classified section. I guess the job market depends on what type of work you do. Although a lot of people commute.

There is lots of information on Evergreen here. Do a search and you should find lots of useful information.

Very few apartments for rent but there are some. Some condos and of course houses.

Cost of living is high compared to most places down the hill in Denver and the surrounding suburbs.

You can read the local paper on line to see what jobs are available, rentals etc....

There are a few apartment buildings scatered around throught evergreen however they are few and far between and they are a bit expensive.. Even some of the older ones are not cheap and they aren't in that great of shape either or have really any amenities. As far as job market there really is not that much in the way of jobs since Evergreen is mainly a bedroom community for Denver and most people end up commuting into denver for work. I guess there are a few descent jobs up there but it just depends on what field you are looking on getting into. As far as cost of living is concerned, aside from the high property values you really won't find that much difference in other services that are in the city of denver. Granted its not a big town so there are some things that you might have to look for in Denver. The link for the newspaper above can give you more specifics or look at Pinecam.com - An Electronic Community In The Colorado Rockies they might have some information for you.
