Best Denver Neighborhoods for Young Professionals

Best Denver Neighborhoods for Young ProfessionalsYoung professionals from the millennial generation and Generation X are playing an increasingly large role in the Denver real estate market these days. These young home buyers typically fall into one of two categories: (1) looking for a turnkey home that requires little improvement or upkeep (2) interested in investing sweat equity to add value and put a personal stamp on a property.

The Denver home market is filled with opportunities to satisfy the needs of both types of buyers. Here is a short list of the best Denver neighborhoods for young professionals.

Wash Park

Split into two sections -- Washing Park and Washington Park West -- this area has a lot to offer young professionals looking to purchase a home. Its excellent walk score and proximity to outdoor adventure, bars, restaurants, and coffee shops make it an ideal location for young singles or couples on the go.
