Yes, you can occasionally find LoHi Denver Listings under $400,000.
LoHi, which is the shortening of the name Lower Highlands, refers to the area east of Zuni Street, South of 32nd Ave and West of I-25 in North Denver. See the map below.
LoHi has dramatically changed in the last 10 years. If you dig further back in Denver police crime records, you will be pretty surprised at the turnaround.
Getting back to housing options. $400,000 will buy you the occasional condominium or an older smaller home that needs a remodel. Some of the older homes are getting torn down and are being replaced with million dollar single family homes. Yup. Hard to imagine if you have been in North Denver any amount of time. Jefferson Park is also experiencing the same wave of development. However, I digress.
The stricter definition of Lower Highlands is a pretty small collection of city blocks. The draw to the area is the proximity to downtown, views of the city and a very strong collection of newer restaurants. Some of the best food options in Denver call LoHi home. If you find LoHi expensive or low on inventory, head North. As you approach and pass 38th Avenue, you enter an area of Sunnyside that is not as far along in the gentrification process and there are still some intact older homes with larger lots at reasonable prices.
The link below, at press time, had four listings. 1 condo, 1 fixer upper and two lots suitable for building. The data will change quickly, however, the criteria will not. Check back as often as you want to find loHi Denver Listings under $400,000
