Homes for Sale in Denver

Buying a home in Denver this year might be the wisest decision of your life, and it’s cheaper than renting.  Renting gives you no equity, but then you know that. Where to live?

The problem you’ll discover is that there’s not a lot of construction going on and a lot of homeowners don’t want to sell. But they’re getting to ready to sell this year.
