For the first time in a long time, Denver’s bustling real estate market has slowed.

The top line: The steep rise in prices is slowing and there are more houses on the market.

That’s making it easier for buyers like Philip Wang, who was looking for a bigger house for his growing family this spring.

Wang, a marketing operations manager for a medical device software company, lives in a fairly large house in Arvada — more than 2,000 square feet — but the bad layout made it feel small.

“A wife, kid and a dog, and sort of getting a little cramped,” he said.

He and his wife found the place they wanted in Westminster, and they pulled off a feat that used to be almost impossible: they sold a home and bought another at the same time.

I hate to break it to you but we are not discussing how much you and your roommate have in common.

 Leave it to the real estate world to use the common term "tenant", normally referring to someone renting or leasing a property, to explain how much ownership you have of a property when you purchase it.  How you are placed on title when purchasing a property is extremely important.  Its good to review all of the options so that if  something happened you would be covered.  Think about it a bit like insurance, except this isn’t title insurance, this is more like which insurance policy you pick.  You have a few options; Joint Tenancy, in Severalty, or Tenants in Common are the most popular, if you will.  A few months ago we covered Joint Tenancy in

To help boost the mobility of young people, Denver will offer 12- to 18-year-olds free transit passes usable with their smartphones this summer.

The On My Way transportation program will run from June 1 to Aug. 31 and will pair with youths’ My Denver card, a pass to pools, libraries, museums and other city-run places.

City and school officials initiated the program to help more teens reach those programs, said Nicole Portee, who heads transportation for Denver Public Schools.

That’s not the only driving force behind the program. Officials also see it as a way to discover how many students will use the transit pass. Portee said ridership data collected during the program could help build a case for offering a pass throughout the school year.

Memorial Day is unique in that it is not about any one person, but a group of people.

Specifically, it is about remembering those who have given their lives in military service to our nation during war.

It is understandable why we may have lost sight of that over time. During the First and Second World Wars, millions of Americans served in uniform. Our connection to the military was personal on many levels. It was our spouse, our sibling, our child, and almost no family was left untouched by loss. As time went on, so did war, but something started to happen. Wars got smaller. They were fought differently, with fewer people. Medical advances meant battlefield wounds of old were now survivable. Thus, fewer Americans were needed to join the
