Denver has been my City of choice since 1962 because the quality of life here is amazing! First, and by far the best facts --- 300 plus days of sunshine every year and over 5,000 acres dedicated to park areas for recreation. Yes, we have experienced droughts and water restrictions in the past, but most days are very enjoyable. If you don´t like the weather today, just wait, it will be different tomorrow. There have been times where all 4 seasons have been experienced in one day or at least in one week! The snow is generally most apparent in December & January, but can show up sporadically even in June! We like the snow to stay in the mountains! Overall, expect the average temperature in Denver to be pleasant between 64 to 69 degrees Fahrenheit with sunshine. You know you live in Colorado when you go from heat to air conditioning - all in one day! Here is a chart that will give you the averages each month in Denver.
If you are a sports fan --- we have it all! Broncos, Avalanche, Nuggets, Rockies and even theMammoth. We have a new stadium for football, and a newer indoor stadium for hockey and basketball. Denver fans are pretty fanatical, we enjoy our sports! Especially when the Broncos won the Super Bowl! You should have seen what the City of Denver did for the Denver Broncos after winning the Super Bowl 50. The Rally & Parade, many buildings were lit in orange & blue, and the support for this team was amazing! One million people came to the rally with one arrest --- that is pretty civilized!
Denver has many choices for enjoying the performing arts such as plays, operas, and musicals. The Denver Center for Performing Arts, Central City Playhouse, Littleton Playhouse are just a few venues. There are also many plays that run through Denver off Broadway!
There are a lot of choices here for housing! You can live in new condos or lofts downtown, Highlands, where the homes have been renovated from the 1800´s, and enjoy the cute shops and coffee shops, or in the suburbs with shopping close wherever you choose. Many homes have a "walkability" score. There are neighborhoods where it´s very popular to walk dogs, go for a run. There are eight different counties in the Denver metro area - Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas and Jefferson counties.
Enjoy the convenience of public transportation. With our new light rail the multi-family living is becoming very popular. All along this route, you will find condos and town homes that are within walking distance, so you can leave your car at home, and save gas. This helps with going to work, and also enjoying the night life in Denver. The light rail opened and has a line from downtown to Denver International Airport, and you no longer will have the need to park a car!
Denver's real estate has been strong the past few years and home values. Sellers are seeing great equity in their homes and values have returned from the dip in values from 2008. There is little distressed housing now in the Denver metro area. 2014, 2015. 2016, 2017 and 2018 saw strong sales with sellers seeing multiple offers. Inventory has been at its lowest levels with buyers clamoring for each home. Mid-2018 we saw a slight shift in the market, and is no longer the frenzied housing market we have been seeing. This is easier for the Buyers wanting to purchase a home now.
