Feeling down about searching for a house in Denver? If you were looking for a house in Colorado Springs, you might get more square feet, but you’d also have to worry about whether your home was slowing moving at every moment.

Read on and decide for yourself whether you could bear to leave Denver for one of these three cities.

Denver

Oh hello, it’s another beautiful remodeled early 20th century Denver home. One fun bonus — this home has a detached garage that could become an accessory dwelling unit.

Colorado Springs

Readers of a certain age, (mine), will recoil at this home which looks exactly one or more suburban houses that they visited for middle school sleepovers. That aside, it seems that there are a ton of windows here, and further, that they look out over some good views. Bonus: it doesn’t seem to be in one of the city’s landslide areas.

New York City

Yes, it’s not especially shocking that New York City has the smallest square footage and the fewest bedrooms. This particular steal is so cheap that Redfin directs interested persons to call the listing agent directly.

Miami

Forget seasons and move to Miami if you’re cool with two bedrooms and palm trees. Don’t move if you don’t like bars on your windows.
