The biggest surprise for visitors to Denver is the climate. Thanks to Denver's 300 days of blue skies and sunshine each year, the forecast is almost always a good one. Winters are mild with an average daily high temperature of 45 degrees Fahrenheit and days reaching 60 degrees are not uncommon. Snow doesn't stay on the ground long in Denver so golf courses and outdoor cafes are able to stay open all year. In summer, Denver enjoys low relative humidity, making for beautiful, sun-filled days and cool, comfortable evenings. The average daily high temperature in August is a mild 86 degrees (0 comments)

What, am I crazy? Just hear me out. If you are thinking of selling your present Denver home and buying up, read on. Say your home is worth $400,000 and the home you want to buy is $600,000, and we've had a 5.4% drop in prices from 1 year ago. Your home lost $21,600 (ouch), but the one you want to buy lost $32,400. You're actually $10,800 ahead if you sell now and buy up. If you are selling, this is not the time to price your Denver property with a "hopeful" price tag.

Denver is a geographically isolated city sitting exactly one mile above sea level and over 600 barren miles from the next closest major city. Concealed from the west by bold foothills and towering 14,000-foot peaks, and protected to the east by an expansive and unforgiving high desert terrain, it is a place where everybody seems to be from somewhere else.

In light of the Treasury Department's action to place government sponsored enterprises, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, into a conservatorship, people are asking "What does this mean for me?" Many experts have speculated that this decision could lead to lower rates on various mortgage products. Thus far, there has been no significant changes in rates overall. Over the past week, the average rate 30-year fixed rate mortgages offered by major financial institutions have dropped 22.6 basis points from 6.761% to 6.535%.
