According to Samuel Strauch, one of the best suburban communities to reside in is a region of Denver called Northeast Denver. This suburban area of the city has home prices that are half that of average home prices in other parts of Denver. The average sales price of a home in other parts of Denver is say $544,000 says Strauch. A young couple can easily get the same kind or better quality home in a suburban Northeast Denver neighborhood for about $270,000. That is some serious savings.

Northeast Denver is also rapidly rising. Home prices have actually risen by about 27%. A new development called Stanley Marketplace is also drawing new people to the area. This part of Denver remains extremely attractive for those looking to buy more affordable and suburban homes. You should act fast though, as the home prices can continue to rise and easily exceed $300,000 if the boom here continues. Click here to know more.

The town of Wylie in the Dallas-Forth Worth metroplex is another top suburban destination. Wylie has significantly less expensive housing. Advantages to living in Wylie over Dallas include much lower crime rates, less noise and plenty of land to call your own in the form of backyards and lawns. Wylie is growing economically, and the county government is seeking to add a community college to the town to service a growing population there.

Originally published on NJ Spotlight 

New Brunswick has used the last bit of the past century battling similar kinds of challenges that were faced by most of US cities: an escalation in immigrant populace, decrease in property value, plus comparative neglect. 

However a number of development schemes have been initiated by various investors since John & Johnson made a great deal of commitment not to migrate from the city, and this rekindled investors’ confidence in the stability plus potential of New Brunswick. Different from other aging towns, New Brunswick started recovering in early and mid-1980s. Although its advancement has been thoroughly slow. The following are some of the developments that have taken place in this city as part of its rebound process. 

The Aspire 
The 17-story housing high-rise forms part of the still-miniscule assemblage of posh residential units in this city. Positioned at close proximity to train station that has express transportation to New York, The Aspire leases a 2-bedroom apartment to a high of $2,800 per month. These apartments are likened to a number of highly classy housing units in Manhattan, by Boraie Vice President Wasseem Boraie. This project is mainly an initiative of The Aspire New Brunswick and Boraie Development LLC. 

College Avenue Redevelopment Initiative 
Describing it as the biggest development initiative in Rutger’s history, Rutgers in collaboration with Devco is constructing a quad for the university worth $300million on a 10-acre piece of land. Positioned on and everywhere in College Avenue, the scheme augments a 200,000 sq. foot academic as well as administration block (the first academic building from 1961); a housing honors-college building; a 500-bed dormitory furnished with trade space as well as surrounded with an extensive lawn featuring an outdoor CCTV surveillance, seating, plus boardwalk; and walkways alongside cycling paths. The honors-college complex is planned to open during fall semester, and the other schemes are concluding next year. 

The Hub at New Brunswick Station 
Thanks partially to Devco’s combined-use Gateway facility neighboring the train station as well as the 600,000 sq. foot Wellness Plaza at the upper side of the street, the complex that is in front of train station has had significant upgrading in the last 3 years. Presently, Devco is launching phase 3 of Transit Village Initiative, a scheme set on a 4-acre area referred to as ‘The Hub at New Brunswick Station’, all through the Albany Street as u alight from the train. 

With such developments in progress, New Brunswick will certainly become a very urbane city with more features as well as optionality.
