Denver is one of the top markets for buying and selling homes. When looking for Denver real estate for sale, there are several aspects of Denver life that you’ll want to consider:

Happening neighborhoods

One of the great parts about living in Denver is that it is easy to find a home in this big city that is surrounded by a small town feel. Along with the metropolitan area you’ll find smaller communities such as Berkeley, Cherry Creek, and Baker. This means that you have everything that comes with the big city along with block parties, friendly neighbors, or whatever community environment you could want. You’ll find a sense of local pride within a distinct community of a large city. If you’re not so big on the outdoors, no worries! You’ll find shopping centers, gyms, restaurants, and lively young areas to blow off steam indoors. Not to mention the community involvement—these communities care about their neighborhoods, many of them offering outreach programs and even programs centered towards upping real estate value, such as programs that improve upon foreclosed and vacant homes.

The great outdoors

You’ll find an outdoor lover’s paradise in Denver. Just east of the Rocky Mountains, you’re right by fantastic ski slopes, hiking and biking trails, fishing, swimming, and tons of other outdoor activities. Denver has over 300 parks and at least 29 recreation centers. The largest Denver Mountain Park, Genesee Park, has a city-owned bison herd and the Chief Hosa Lodge & Campground. Red Rocks Park, formerly known as the Garden of Angels, features the famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre, a popular music venue. Whether you’re looking to camp, hike, ski, swim, fish, other activities, or to just lay in the grass and enjoy nature, then you’ll find what you’re looking for in Denver.

Beautiful views

With Denver’s geography, you’d think the city was built specifically for the views. The “Mile High City” is named as such because it sits a mile above sea level, but the city center consists of plains that are surrounded by hilly areas on almost all sides. Located in the Front Range Urban Corridor, Denver sits between the Rocky Mountains and the High Plains. This means that you’ll have many opportunities for beautiful mountain views when looking for Denver Colorado homes for sale. However, mountains aren’t your only option for a pretty view—you’ll also have the opportunity for a water view, with the Platte River running through the city and many lakes.
