SmartAsset named the Denver MSA the 9th best housing market for growth and stability in the nation. Boulder was #1 and Ft. Collins was #4. Since 1993 average Denver home prices have increased by 256% good for 4th best after San Francisco, Boulder, and San Jose. But, SmartAsset said there is an 18% chance a homeowner experienced a 5% or greater home price decline at any point in the 10 years following the home purchase.
