Texas, South Dakota, Vermont, and Mississippi actually experienced some price appreciation.  Prices were up in the Austin, Texas area 4 percent, Houston, Texas by 3.8 percent, San Antonio, Texas by 3 percent, and Dallas, Texas by 2 percent.  Texas is seeing a faster recovery than other portions of the country.

Something else is going right in Colorado.  The Mile High City has one of the fastest growing populations in North America.  Visitors return to experience the charm, character, and charisma as well as educational, cultural, sporting, and recreational activities.  Nestled at the base of the Rocky Mountains, the City enjoys relatively mild summer and winter climates.  Homes are located in unique neighborhoods steeped with 150 years of interesting history and interwoven corresponding Historic Districts and people from all walks of life mingle at parks, open spaces, boutiques, and pedestrian malls.
