PRICEY PLACES

The Denver Post - - NEWS - Gabriel Scar­lett, The Den­ver Post

Jose San­doval, 78, stands on the porch of his home in the Tres Colonies neigh­bor­hoods of Fort Collins on Thurs­day. San­doval, who em­i­grated from Chi­huahua, Mex­ico, in 1975, was drawn to the area for its in­ex­pen­sive hous­ing for farm la­bor­ers. He pur­chased his home for less than $14,000. But ex­pan­sive de­vel­op­ment, in­clud­ing New Bel­gium Brew­ing just across the street, has caused home prices to soar — one re­cently sold for more than $350,000. San­doval says many res­i­dents have moved out of the neigh­bor­hoods.
