...you were contemplating a relo to the Denver area. Here are the websites that I scoured before making the final decision.
Click on Area Cities and check out the demograpics and detailed descriptions for each one.
Create a log-on id and then you can search active real estate listings
Under "Find Homes" search all Local Listings
Once I targeted a specific county, I went onto the XXX county assessor website to look at homes, values, purchase prices, etc.
I also have the name of a friendly, and highly honest real estate agent who knows the areas extremely well and will freely provide the pros and cons to each.
