Denver has so much building going on, it's looks like Shanghai!

We have had a house in Denver for about 14 years. Never before have I seen so much construction happening at one time. It’s absurd in Cherry Creek North, which is where I live, but drive along 1-25 through the core of downtown to the east, and the Highlands on the west, and cranes, and framed buildings is all you can see. I used to joke ( back in about 2006) that here in Breckenridge, that if you dug a hole, it rained and a house grew. Now in Denver the holes are bigger condo complex’s, commercial, and many, many apartments. Here in Summit County, we don’t have the place for much more than single family homesites ( 260 currently on the market). After 35 years I can speak from experience, if you want new, and you want condo, you have one, maybe 2 years at the most. If you want to build a home, or buy a spec, you have maybe 5-10 years, but, this sleepy little county I moved to 35 years ago, will soon be closing it’s doors to homeowners, as the visitors climb to maximum occupancy. 2013 was the best year ever, and wait till the numbers come in on 2014. The numbers will be through the roof.
