People living in areas at high risk for wildfires are aware of the danger but underestimate the peril when compared with firefighting professionals, according to a new study led by a University of Colorado researcher.
While my wife and I are not currently living in a wildfire danger zone, we do have an interest in heading towards the mountains at some point in the future. With as much as we know about wildfires, I find it curious how many people who own property out in the mountains seem to be somewhat disinterested in doing all that they can to mitigate the risks specific to their property.
According to the latest Re/Max sales report released earlier this week, Denver led the nation in various residential real estate categories, including rising home prices, fewest days homes stay on the market, and lowest amount of inventory.
As a homeowner on the outskirts of the metro Denver area, the real estate market out here has been unbelievable. We were fortunate enough to have moved out here in 2012 before the market started to go through the roof. If we had to make the same move today, I’m not sure we would have landed in the same area as we did simply due to the cost of housing.
