If you’re a first time buyer in Denver, now is a great time to be looking. First of all interest rates are low, 6 percent as I write this, but you can click here for daily rates. Every Denver first time buyer I’ve worked with this year has found a great place at a great price. What’s impressive is that you can find a nice house with a yard in just about every direction and still be 10 minutes from downtown. Here’s where to look if the west side of town piques your interest.
Try Berkeley or Sunnyside – the popularity of the Highlands neighborhood is pushing north, and these two neighborhoods are benefiting. This zip code was up 18 percent in 2007, compared with the rest of Denver being slightly down. Berkeley, just north of 38th, features the Tennyson Street Art District, home of one of 5280 magazine’s best new restaurants, the Big Hoss Bar-B-Q and the incredibly popular Parisi restaurant. Sound like a place you’d like to live near?
I’ve also had great luck with Denver first time buyers this year in all directions, again, all of these will be ten minutes or less to downtown. South in Baker near the Santa Fe Arts District, north/northwest near Regis University, and east northeast in San Rafael and City Park North. All of these are affordable, up and coming neighborhoods for singles and young couples, and invite you to at to learn more.
