    So many good spots in Denver. Rented in Uptown, Cherry Creek, and Highlands before buying in City Park West a few years ago. Loved all those spots

    Currently closed? They definitely don’t have an outdoor space. But I assume it will come back with denver reopening

    $3k for a 2 bedroom apartment, eh? That's a mortgage payment on a house that's like 700k.

    I inquired about a place, got a call for an individual that works with you in finding a place to live. Sounded pleasant, asked about what I'm looking for, price, other criteria. Did recommend where to live and where to avoid, where the crime and homeless camps are. His name is John.

    He gets paid from whoever I sign with, which means he must work with select places.

    Said he'd call back and give a list of places to look at.

    Is this a normal thing?

    I think my best bet is to live somewhere on the outskirts, or farther away and drive to work. Already drive 20-30 minutes now.

    Settle in for a year somewhere that's safe to get my feet underneath me. Start to look for somewhere closer inside that I feel comfortable with for year 2.

    rental car prices are fucking ridiculous. I just spent $1,063.00 to rent a Tahoe for july 21-26. It was only a little over $400 more for the 2,500+ sq ft house in Westminster that we rented for the same time.

    I think a lot of rental places sold a lot of their inventory during the pandemic when demand was low and now they have to jack up prices

    Good rule of thumb I found. Going 12 miles will take half an hour with no traffic, including highways. Factor 1.25-1.5x w traffic.

    Not sure why 12 miles but wife and I commuted equidistant in different directions and that was the formula we came up w.

    You looked in Arvada at all?

    How long has the housing/renting market been creeping up in price? Is it mainly due to COVID?

    gowolverines8 Well-Known Member

    2012ish and it has just gone up and up. There have been so many people moving here that still view the housing as a value. Wages certainly aren’t there to justify the home and rent prices.

    Feels like people around Denver are done with masks judging by the Home Depots I had to go to today. First time I have been in a place when even employees weren't wearing them.

    Is that how it is everywhere here?

    It’s kind of a rite of passage to have your bike stolen and your car broken into within the first few months of living here.

    Stayed here for a year in 2018: https://www.watertowerflats.com/ - Think I paid about 1400/month.

    Don't have anything to compare it to since it's my only apartment experience post-college, but I enjoyed it. Easy access to 70 to get to the mountains and DT, can walk to Olde Town Arvada.

    Had a third story unit with a balcony facing the mountains, sunsets were incredible. Shit, now I'm kinda missing the place.

    Edit to add I never had anything stolen or broken into in their parking lot.

    Wouldn't it work well for me since it's central and I travel to multiple schools?

    Also, apologies if I'm cluttering the thread.

    That part of downtowns not that sweet if you want to spend time in parks and do dog dad stuff, also you’re gonna be in the middle of heavy vehicle traffic in every direction

    Ya, that’s a little too downtown for me. I mean it appears to located next to a Ritz Carlton.

    I would strive to be deeper into the neighborhoods. Wash park / pearl street. Lohi. Highlands. Berkeley. Sunnyside. Even Lakewood and wheat ridge. I have a friend that lives right next to olde town arvada who enjoys it

    I live a few blocks from here. Downtown's a pain to drive in. There's always construction or people trying to park or Ubers stopped in the road or just a lot of blocks to get through. I find the area itself to be a bit touristy and commercial for my taste, though I do like that it's close to the stadiums, convenient to LoHi/RiNo, and easy to take the train to the airport. But I don't think I'd live in LoDo if not for paying below market for my place and having two covered parking spots.

    That said, if I were looking specifically in downtown, I'd look closer to Commons Park because that's the best green space option in the downtown area.
