Forbes Magazine came up with the 10 best cities to buy real estate and Denver was #5. They looked at the “premium to buy” which is difference between what someone would spend on rent versus what they would spend on a mortgage. For these 10 cities the premium was much lower than the 15-year average. Forbes also identified where economists predict the largest increase in home prices over the next five years. Here are the cities: 1. Boston, 2. Charlotte, 3. Chicago, 4. Cincinnati, 5. DENVER, 6. Minneapolis, 7. Philadelphia, 8. Portland, 9. San Francisco, 10. Washington D.C.
