A report from Coldwell Banker Real Estate ranked Boulder homes for sale as the fifth most expensive out of college towns. The average cost for a three bedroom, two bath home for sale in Boulder is $731,617 according to the report.

Definitely put Arvada on your 'Best Place to Live' list if you're moving to the Denver/Boulder vicinity. One reason - Olde Town Arvada.
Driving through Olde Town Arvada last week, I had to smile about the surprising mix of businesses.
One thing I like about historic Arvada is that it's not all brand-new and spiffy, a 'fake' town created by a master plan designed to win awards. Don't get me wrong - I know people love places like that, and I'm glad they're popping up everywhere.
But back to Olde Town! Arvada grew up around the town center at Grandview and Wadsworth. Many of the buildings are original to the town's founding.
There are the nice places people love to visit like Penzey's Spices, Into the Fire, Nature's Gift Candles and Knit…

The number of homes that are underwater is something we hear on the news all the time, yet I still think this is an interesting question. Public perception is so completely skewed, it's no wonder that even people who CAN buy a house AREN'T.
'Underwater' means more is owed on the house than it would currently sell for, which results in a foreclosure or short sale if the owners can't make the payments.
Obviously, that doesn't apply to homes that are completely paid off. So, how many American homes don't have a mortgage on them?
Here is the link to the US Census Bureau showing about 1/3 of homes in America are paid off: Mortgage Characteristics
So now the question remains, out of the ~70% of homes that have a mortgage, how many are under…
