"Drivers killed 14 people walking on Denver streets in 2017. Half of these fatal collisions happened on Federal Boulevard. Take a look at WalkDenver's new report and it’s no wonder why. Federal Boulevard is designed like a highway but cuts through residential neighborhoods and carries large numbers of bus riders."
"Colorado’s monthly average one-bedroom apartment rent did increase to an average of $1,004 per month. Denver is a different story and came in at 21 of the most expensive one-bedroom rent at $1,299 for 2017. ... However on the bright side, Denver dwellers love their city — and between the sun, snow and scenery, Denver has consistently ranked among the nations best places to live."

Consumer Tips! from Maro Casprian from the Denver DA's Office and Carolynne Diocese-Wright from the Colorado Dept of Regulatory Agencies(DORA)/Division of Real Estate: In dealing with unsolicited marketing to sell your home, research states that they tend to: 1. Target owners who have owned their home for 20+ years. 2. They are usually looking for owners that are 50+ age or older. 3. Know the value of your home. This can be found on the Assessor's Website at https://www.denvergov.org/content/denvergov/en/assessors-office/real-property/alternative-search.html. Neighborhood sales are listed when search your own home to see recent sales. 4. Get 3 bids to evaluate the value of your home from appraisers. 5. Take your time and keep other family members in the loop. Any second opinions will probably scare off unreputable dealers. Other tips - You can also look up real estate agents/brokers on the DORA website https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/dora/division-real-estate.If you have bad loans or under foreclosure pressure contact Colorado Housing Connects at 1-844-926-6632, http://www.coloradohousingconnects.org or the Colorado Foreclosure line at 1-877-601-HOPE, http://coloradoforeclosurehotline.org/Home.aspx Other scams the DA Office anticipates in the near future is the reissuing of Medicare Cards. The new cards will not have Social Security Numbers on them. The reissuing is to begin in March 2018. This will take 2 years. They anticipate unsolicited phone calls contacting you to see if you have received your Medicare card and ask for verification. This will be a scam. Do not give any information. For more information on fraud issues, contact the Denver DA's Fraud Hot Line at 720-913-9179
