Real estate prices in Denver have been rising steadily in recent years, with the average tag for a Mile High City house exceeding $500,000 earlier this year.

And even though some experts are predicting a course correction in 2019 amid a scene where a growing number of properties are underwater, the folks at Zillow believe costs will keep going up in the new year throughout the metro area.

We accessed Zillow facts and figures for 37 Denver area zip codes listed by the comprehensive City Data website. In each case, prices have gone up over the past year, generally by less than 10 percent, though four increased by double digits.

Moreover, the costs in all of the zips are expected to keep escalating by as much as 8 percent. There's not a single exception.


Granted, the costs vary widely from zip to zip. The kindest to bank accounts is 80247, which covers part of the Windsor neighborhood, where the median price for a home is currently a shade under $230,000.

Contrast that with 80209, the zip for much of Washington Park, where the median home price is more than three times higher, easily topping $700,000.

Continue to see median home prices, percentage increases from last year and 2019 prognostications for the 37 Denver-area zip codes, ranked from least to most expensive.
