How much does renting instead of buying really cost you? There have been reports coming out pretty consistently the past few years showing how much more it costs to rent in Denver verse buying. It is about 50% cheaper to buy rather than rent in Denver right now which equates to a couple thousand more to rent per year. Depending on your situation, the flexibility might be worth it. But how much does it cost you when you look at it over a longer period?

I recently had the privilege of previewing several properties in Denver's Highlands neighborhood with two additional Live Urban agents.  The homes ranged in price from $516,000 to $624,000 and although most showed quite well, tiny details had been overlooked in each home.  From outdated (and incorrectly priced) marketing materials, to chipped paint and out of season candies, each home left behind a small sign that the owners and listing agent(s) had overlooked specific and notable details.
