Denver has over 100 neighborhoods and that can make it a little tricky narrowing down where you want to live, especially if you are not familiar with the Mile High City. Inspired by 5280's recent report on the 25 Best Neighborhoods in Denver, we wanted to expand on their top picks to show you homes for sale in each neighborhood as well as market data for 2019.

5280 ranked neighborhoods by several factors, including crime data, average housing prices, school performance, and quality of life factors like walkability, public transportation, access to parks, shopping opportunities, and more. Read their full reporting here. Want some of these stats emailed to you regularly? Click on "Get Market Updates" to stay up-to-date on each of these micro-markets.
