Of course, without a magic crystal ball, it's impossible to tell the future, but indicators like this might mean that the Denver Metro area, which is very popular with homebuyers, will see a very strong housing market continue into Spring.

According to our friends at,

Managing the plumbing challenges of older homes before you purchase an older home it is a good idea to understand the common plumbing challenges you may discover. Pipes, sewers and drains can require expensive renovations before they will be reliable.

Best spots to cozy up with a cocktail on a rainy denver day.

This awesome rainy, cloudy day has us in the mood to cuddle up by the fireplace with a good book...or in a cozy bar with a fantastic cocktail. We asked Live Urban agents to share their fave bars to imbibe in on one of Denver's rare dreary afternoons:

Mark said: This one is RIGHT in my wheelhouse!  We love Sarto's  Because of the neighborhood views and those walls of windows.  It's the perfect place to snug up and watch the leaves fall.  I'll take my extra points for the Buttero: Rye, amaro, and blood orange
