I was previewing a Wheat Ridge house for a client last week, and boy was it a wreck.  (BTW - that's Wheat Ridge, Colorado, a town between Denver and Boulder.)arvada homes denver boulder, buy house colorado


Not too bad on the inside, actually. Had rounded doorways and the recessed ceiling popular in the 1940s.


But the outside had been completely neglected for a long, long time.  I'd say this was one of the most neglected homes I've seen (except for that one missing a large chunk of the front room ceilng, all the way through to the sky).

Still, as I came around the last corner, I saw this one lovely iris, blooming courageously amongst the weeds and trash that constituted the yard of this house.arvada homes denver boulder, buy house colorado It always amazes me - to find a bright spot of beauty in the midst of chaos.

I write posts on real estate issues and local events in the Denver metro area, especially those *communities between Denver and Boulder, as a public service. My hope is to give people an idea of the 'flavor' of our community, in case they're new or moving to the Denver area.

I am a residential real estate agent, happily helping folks buy a house or sell a house in the beautiful and friendly *suburbs northwest of Denver.

Hi Joetta, the beauty and durability of the irises amaze me.  They seem to do great, thriving in neglect.
