Yes, you read that right. Renters in Denver need to make $35 an hour to afford a median priced rental. $35 an hour is 4 times the minimum wage in Denver and is no small amount, especially for those just out of college and new to the area so it definitely caught me a little off guard.  When you think about how many apartments are being built in Denver you would think that this number would be coming down soon. But even with the influx of new rentals to the market, vacancy rates continue to fall and rental rates continue to climb. 

According to a recent article by the Denver Post, click here, the median rent in the Denver Metro area is $1,772 per month which means you would need to earn $70K a year to to abide by the rule of thumb that annual housing

Thinking about selling your house, but want to wait until after the holidays?  There are a few things that you could get started on now that will have you ahead of the game when 2015 hits and you are ready to roll!

1. Get rid of clutter. Throw out or file stacks of newspapers and magazines. Pack away most of your small decorative items. Store out-of-season
clothes to make closets seem roomier. Clean out the garage.

2. Wash your windows and screens to let more light into the interior.

Homes that are priced right and show well continue to fly off the market…and this town home in Lowry was no exception.  We asked Listing Agent Dawn Richardson for the whole story….
