I've noticed this year my posts and thoughts on gardening have a lot to do with beauty surviving and thriving despite harsh circumstances.

Arvada has been considered less of a disaster than some other areas, so I was surprised to see that high of a number, and decided to do some comparison with other cities. Westminster had a 63% distressed percentage. Broomfield had an 88% distressed percentage. (There were only 8 homes sold in that price range in the past six months.) Golden had a 100% distressed (2 comments)
