On today’s age-50-plus home tour, see wide choice of places, prices, and purchase options

Denver’s primacy as a location for age-50-plus housing has been building for 20 years, when builders first began creating communities around that market.  Now, as demographic changes and the virus emergency add more energy to the demand, you’ll find even wider choices of places to live and ways of purchasing, including these possibilities:

Urban Lifestyles: This year you’ll find four options close to Denver’s urban core and its popular Cherry Creek shopping district: Those include new-urban homes with main-floor masters or elevators in Lowry; and two popular enclaves built decades ago that have rare resales now.

New master-plans: Montaine in Castle Rock is a spectacular new setting for age-55-plus homes. You’ll also find two communities in Colorado Springs, one of those near the Air Force Academy, 50 minutes south of the DTC.

Rentals and Cooperatives: Rather than pay a large down payment and a typical purchase price, you’ll find two rental communities where nice amenities are already covered in the monthly rent; and two ‘cooperative’ concepts where you make a smaller ‘equity share’ investment, pay a monthly maintenance fee, and own the building in common with other residents.
