Denver Golf at ArrowheadIt is always nice to be recognized, particularly when the recognition is for a good reason!  Fortune Magazine on CNN published their Top 6 Real Estate Bargains .

The lead line reads,

"Think  hikes and horses instead of golf--a\in a market that managed to avoid the mania."  Well they are right about the mania, our Denver real estate market didn't take huge jumps in appreciation over the last decade.

While other areas were exploding off the charts, Denver metro was appreciating at a slow, but solid rate.  Now while other areas in the U.S. are dealing with absorption rates with anniversary dates,  Denver is headed up.  Our appeal to the retirement crowd is the fact our median prices have remained attractive compared to others.

Now I must take exception to the comment about "Think  hikes and horses instead of golf..." Yes, maybe in the middle of winter golf is a challenge, but for the most part Denver enjoys four very mild seasons.  We play golf easily through 3 of them.  In fact we can even go outside in the middle of summer without getting cooked!

Retiring to an area rich in natural beauty, diverse in culture, with four fabulous seasons to enjoy is appealing to many retiring adults.  Thanks for the recognition CNN Money!
