Remember when Hancock said he had the "audacity to say anyone who wanted to live in Denver should be able to afford it? Only now he's pricing out the locals with massive development deals.

You'd love Houston. Cheap houses and smells like oil 'n skeeters 'n humidity. No, wait...

Great news for homeowners. Until they want to buy a new place.

An average income single person doesn't need a an average priced 2 bedroom house. A couple on the other hand, each with an average income can easily afford one of these. I do think the suburbs are over priced but Denver metro is a beautiful city with a lot to offer. It's got a vibrant bustling downtown and a lot of great pockets of art, dining, and a real music scene. It's just as cool as any other 2nd tier city and still booming. Don't like the prices? Move to a city with less to offer if you think Denver isn't all that great. There are cheaper places.

Rebecca Folkerts Huff- Look how ridiculously overpriced Denver is these days. And these places are actually nice. Crappy ones like where we live are going for $140-200,000. So dumb!

Add the pay for no service HOA most of these places have, and it's no surprise people can't afford homes.

It would be nice to include the ridiculous HOA fees most of the places have as well.

I enjoyed living in Denver, and there are some fun things going on, but the mountains are what brought me to CO. Paying a bundle to live on the plains? No thanks. It was nice while it was relatively cheap and convenient. But $1500-$2000 to rent a tiny 2br in town or $200k+ to enter a bidding war on an overpriced, crappy little house in a "transitional" neighborhood? Other places have bike trails and microbreweries. NM and the Pac NW are starting to look like good options!

Looks like my option is to move far from family, can't get the room i need to be close

Having been on the Buyer and the Seller side of the equation, my belief is that the current system of buying and selling homes thru realtors is the strongest variable effecting the rise in home prices (anywhere) and the resulting bubble.

Denver's average income is $61,500, and the average home is $371,500. I guess average people don't get to buy average homes in Denver.

Honestly Denver needs to get over itself!!!!! They act like its freaking NY!

The real estate market in Colorado really bums me out. When a household making over 50000 a year can't afford a 2 bedroom house it is really sad.

What we need to do is make other places more attractive to people so they stop moving here! Parker Road between Parker & Franktown is getting out of control with the amount of people who have moved here. I really don't care about my property's worth...I care about the real estate bubble breaking so people find another place to live instead of Colorado! Texas sounds great to me! Let them move there instead!

Go to www.cohomebook.com to see prices in your neighborhood! Market is great for the sellers, unfortunately not many sellers know how to take advantage of this.

This is not a great thing. We need to stop letting this happen.

I guess it's ok if you are coming from LA or NYC, which is why I'm looking for jobs in TX, the Midwest and the seaboard of GA, SC, and NC

@Monkey Average people are strongly encouraged to move to more affordable parts of the country that also have less congestion and more water.

You make a good point, Melissa. Thanks for posting.

A permanent moratorium on new water taps would solve the problem nicely.

Prices are definitely rising, Aaron, and there's no telling when they'll stop. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Everything's relative -- even home prices. Thanks for posting, Josh.

I was seriously looking late this winter, but had a lease until June. The increase in prices between March and now is LUDICROUS. I wouldn't even want to live anywhere I could afford now. I probably wouldn't even get a ROOF. My real estate hat is out of that ring until this bubble, like all the previous bubbles, bursts.
