Our post featuring five metro-area homes selling for around $371,650 -- the average price in Denver and a new record high -- prompted comments that often went beyond opinions on the properties. Here's the take of a reader who's wary of anything that makes Colorado look too good to people not already living here.

What we need to do is make other places more attractive to people so they stop moving here! Parker Road between Parker & Franktown is getting out of control with the amount of people who have moved here. I really don't care about my property's worth...I care about the real estate bubble breaking so people find another place to live instead of Colorado! Texas sounds great to me! Let them move there instead!
