This was true before urban living became “chic” among young adults and empty nesters. The attraction of the city for many homeowners is due to Denver’s collection of disti...

Rent vs. buy — the case for flexibility

Rent vs. buy — the case for flexibility“A HOUSE is made of walls and beams,” the writer and educator Dr. William A. Ward once said, “and a home is built with love and dreams.” Anybody who has ever undergone the arduous task of combining those two — that is, making a home out of a house through the act of buying one — knows that it’s much easier said than done.
