DENVER – As home prices continue to rise in Denver and its surrounding cities, it’s becoming increasingly important to look at geography when searching for a house to buy.

Across the metro area, the median home price has risen by nearly 8 percent over the past 12 months. It now stands at $420,000, according to the latest data from the Denver Metro Association of Realtors.

Looking specifically at single-family detached homes, the median is even higher at $452,500.

However, those prices vary considerably from one end of the metro area to the other, from anywhere in the $300,000 range in some of the northern suburbs to nearly $800,000 in Lone Tree.
