Ok, I’ll admit it — I love seeing what under $300,000 buys in Denver because it’s the price range that I imagine for myself. This week, we’ve got a peek into Denver, Chicago, Richmond and Dallas.

Denver

If I were buying a house, I think I’d be happy here. It’s got a deck, something I’ve been coveting lately. Plus, there’s an uncramped kitchen to enjoy.

Chicago

Like Denver, there’s a decent kitchen in this Chicago condo. But this place runs circles around Denver when it comes to windows — there are a ton of them and some of them have the desirable southern and eastern orientation.

Richmond

Yesterday on Facebook, I was reminded of a friend who moved to Richmond. It sounded like a new emerging city, the kind that could support her nascent business. If I were to join her, I could live in this sun-dappled condo downtown with high ceilings.

Dallas

Dallas, you’ll recall, recently unseated Denver in the Case-Shiller index measuring home price increases. So here’s a look at what Dallas has to offer and it’s pretty good. I’m partial to the lilac color of the walls and mudroom.
