Do You Have a Child Attending College in Denver? Here's Where to Buy.

City Focus

There are a lot of moving parts that come with sending your kid to college. After determining which school they'll attend, one of the next big decisions is choosing where they'll live. If you want to make an investment that also offers the best environment for your child while they’re attending school in Denver, then a high-rise condo might be right for you and your kid.

Are You Considering All of Your Options?

The dorms might be a good start. Many colleges in the city — and across the nation, for that matter — require that freshmen spend their first year in on-campus housing. Few kids want to stay there long-term, though. Dorm situations are often densely populated and actually quite expensive for the space and amenities provided. Luckily, these housing policies are negotiable under some circumstances, such as with older students or those transferring from another school.

Are You Planning Ahead for Your Child's Housing Needs?

Even if it will be a year or so before your student is looking to move, it might be a good idea to start the process of purchasing a condo now. Housing prices in Denver have been on the uptick for years, making real estate in the central area highly desirable as investment properties.

There are plenty of options for good all-around investments that can also double as excellent college housing. It's often best to look for buildings with good security, plenty of amenities, and a central location that gets kids to class on time.

Are You Searching the Best Spots for Long-Term Purchases?

Luckily, UC Denver and Metro State are also both close to the downtown area. This means that, when you're ready to sell or rent your condo, your real estate is likely to be in high demand. People looking to live in this area include everyone from urban professionals and investors to people looking for in-town homes and, of course, families with college students.

One example of a great buy is the Spire. It's one of the best locations in town for students and it satisfies all of the other criteria as well, with great security and numerous amenities. In terms of investment potential, it's an A-list property that's been an appreciation leader in the city for the past 10 years.

There are plenty of other properties to choose from too, so check out the condos available in Downtown Denver today.
