As devotees of 5280 know, our May issue means real estate, and for the first time in several years we've found that Denver's housing market has a pretty encouraging story to tell. This year we're illuminating it through the lens of Highlands, the northwest-side neighborhood that's garnered national acclaim for its new urbanist-driven revitalization. But if you live in another part of the city, fear not: We've come up with the factors—and the areas—that have the best chance to replicate a Highlands-style boom. So check us out on newstands soon to learn the latest about the state of local real estate, including:
Inventory—Why it's too low, and what you might be able to do about it.
The South Platte corridor and its potential effect on local property values.
