How Can You Profit From Housing Growth in Denver

In a recent Fox Business feature, Greg Rand Radio Host at WABC and CEO of Real Estate website tells America where the top city in America to buy real estate is. Wonderful Denver, Colorado! He says that there is a migration all over the country towards Denver. Young professionals like the Denver vibe. With an average age of 31 these new transplants are settling in to the active lifestyle Denver has to offer. Greg Rand says when he asks people why they like Denver they respond with, “I don’t like it I love it” or “you could not pay me enough to move back to New York or California”.

These young fit people are just attracted to the quality of life here in our beautiful city. With the economy booming and Denver’s foreclosure rates at almost half the national average it makes for a great investment area for single family homes and the condo market.

In Berkeley’s Tennyson Street District, homebuyers see a neighborhood come to life, one corner at a time.

According to an article written by Mark Samuelson in the Denver Post dated 1/3/12 Berkeley’s Tennyson Street District is being resurrected. Mark Samuelson starts the article by introducing Herv Flesher whose parents opened a music store on Tennyson in 1959. There was a five-and-dime next door, a bowling alley down the street, a soda fountain and a cafĂ© diner. 53 years have passed and the dime store is gone but Flesher-Hinton is still selling saxophones, the bowling alley and Kyle’s Kitchen are doing a trade and a steady flow of new eateries and galleries align the corners from W. 38th Avenue north to W. 44th Avenue.

In the article Flesher remembers that it was very slow in the 80’s compared to now with moms out walking with their kids.

A Denver Real Estate agent in the area quoted a newly built 3 bedroom single family, very contemporary home to be $432,000 in the area. That same agent in the article said the next door home to his comparable sold in less than 30 days and compared the single family home values to duplexes selling in the Highlands for the same price range.

Tennyson Street district is not Berkeley’s only walking shopping district it does include another walking shopping district at 44th and Lowell making this a neighborhood anchored by two shopping districts, galleries, restaurants, and homes priced less than in the Highlands.

The borders of this neighborhood include:
W. 38th Avenue north to W. 46th Avenue and Federal west to Sheridan

Free Trees Offered to All Denver Residents This Spring

Applications Due Feb.15, 2012

Denver, CO- This spring only, all Denver residents are eligible for free trees regardless of where they live within the city. All Denver areas including but not limited to City Park, Washington Park, Highlands, LOHI, and Sloans Lake. This rare opportunity is made possible by two different tree distribution programs: The Park People’s annual Denver Digs Trees street tree program and the City’s Mile High Million tree planting initiative.

The Park People’s Paige Heydon says, “We’re thrilled to be part of this exciting partnership that is sure to add thousands of trees to Denver neighborhoods across the city.” She goes on to say, “The trees are being offered at no cost. It’s a win for the city’s urban forest and a win for Denver residents.

Any City and County resident of Denver can apply for free trees to plant along the street in the public right of way. Those who have space for trees on the west side of their homes in front, back, or side yards along the street are eligible to have trees ordered and planted for them.

According to Sara Davis, the program Manager for Denver Parks and Recreation’s Mile High Million Program, trees planted on the west side of houses not only offer wonderful shade, they also reduce energy consumption, “With that in mind, we are happy to offer the trees and the planting free of charge.

Availability will be limited, so apply no later than February 15, 2012. Visit or call 303-722-6262 for application information.

Denver’s City Forester Rob Davis says, “Trees beautify neighborhoods, improve property values, provide environmental services, and support good health by encouraging people to spend time outdoors. This is a great opportunity for Denver residents to enhance their neighborhoods.”

The Denver Digs Trees program is able to offer free street trees to all Denver residents this spring thanks to a partnership with Denver Parks and Recreation Forestry Division and the sponsorship of Xcel Energy Foundation and the City of Denver’s Office of Economic Development. The Mile High Million’s Trees for Energy Savings program is made possible with funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
