We're just retired and would like to relocate to Denver. Where in the city should we look for a home that's both in a "safe" area and "affordable" for retirees. Please provide any guesses on home prices in the suggested areas using the following as a point of reference: we're looking for at least: 2 to 3 bds and 1 to 2 baths. Also, zip codes and names of the areas would be appreciated. We're doing our homework first before coming out to Denver and "scouting" areas and linking up with realtors.

Default Job?

The IT industry is DEAD in Denver. Sun Micro is always laying off and a small storage manufacture is laying of 400. Good luck with the job search here. All that is available is low level call center jobs. And Lakewood will cost you about $300,000 and up for a house. Maybe its better to stay in IL. People are moving from Denver to the east who work in IT.

Just some advice.

Hey there-

Parker has some great neighborhoods. Highlands Ranch is good but I heard they were having water problems (correct me of I am wrong somebody). Depending on what size of house you are looking for you can find a nice home for $250,000. Do you want land? How close you want to be downtown Denver? How many sq feet do you want? What are your hobbies? Do you want to be near the mountains? SHEP
