Ana McKenzie-Campbell's post about what $1,200 rent will buy in metro Denver got a lot of people talking.
Some were distressed by the high price tag on places that struck them as modest at best.
Others pointed out that better buys were available the further renters ventured from downtown Denver.
The problem, one reader feels, is that those outlying areas aren't as cool as the ones closer to the action.

Going by these examples, as is in most major cities, it's way more expensive to live where all the action is and cheaper the further you get away from downtown. IMO, the biggest problem is Denver has fewer hip towns in the burbs than a lot of other metro areas.
