Last year, in a list of the ten most expensive American cities to buy a house, Denver was included — but barely.

The Mile High City landed in ninth place.

In new data from the S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indices about the U.S. cities with the fastest-rising home prices, Denver finished higher.

Much higher.
