    Exactly where in Denver? If you're military or retiree look into Buckley ARB's TLF.

        Consider the apartments near the RTD rail station in Lone Tree. The train goes right downtown.

        Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

        Three things I know for sure: (1) No bad deed goes unrewarded, (2) No good deed goes unpunished, and (3) It is entirely possible to push the most devoted, loyal and caring person beyond the point where they no longer give a 5h!t.

          I am breaking my bump rule. Try Stapleton for the fam. Good area. Don't know about the schools. From there I would try Highlands Ranch/Lone Tree. If you are making Big Bucks/No whammy's then I would try Cherry Creek. There you are looking in the million dollar range. There and Greenwood Village. There are apartments downtown, but they will cost you a pretty penny depending on where you look. If the price is reasonable then there is a reason for it.

              The market has come back better in the Denver Metro area than other places in Colorado and the country. You can find more reasonable places to live, but you will have to commute. Choices choices

                  Highlands Ranch or Parker is a great place to live. Highlands Ranch has lots of Recreation Centers to work out in, Parker has a great downtown and smaller feel. Both are in Douglas County, about 20 miles south of Denver.

                    Just another consideration I-25 and I-70 traffic is pretty bad during the peak hours 6am-9am and 3pm-6pm, C470 on the west side of town is probably our best highway drive times are pretty good along there. Southwest Jeffco/Littleton area is very nice and very reasonably priced.

                      One thing to consider is the current white hot housing market. The current cost of decent housing is a result of a building slump from our most recent depression, also the market is investor driven as well, according to my real estate sources. I would wait a year or two to get a feel for the area to avoid paying more than you should. In some areas houses that went for 225 to 250k are currently pushing 400k.

                      Rent will also kill you, but buying some time could save you a lot in the long run. Good luck.
