My stepdaughter won in the housing lottery that is the Colorado real estate market
Earlier this month my stepdaughter and her boyfriend bought their first home. They ended up in a three-bedroom, two-bathroom house near Columbine. It has a two-car garage and decent size yards in front and back.
Feel free to gasp at their accomplishment in the current market.
They are both in their mid 20s, recently completed master’s programs, and began their respective careers last fall. She is a speech language pathologist and he is a school counselor. It isn’t like either is a major league baseball player with the incumbent mega-contract and millions to drop on a down payment.
Instead they had two things that seem requisite in the current market: a little help and a lot of luck.
