One of the most curious real estate transactions of the year is reported to be on the verge of completion in the city of Aurora, according to local media reports.

Unused for 28 years, the 10-acre property site was once a thriving shopping establishment in the center of Aurora.
For years, city officials and neighbors have debated about what to do with the property, yet repeated discussions consistently came to nothing. Now however, it’s being reported that a deal has all but been agreed, and a contract to buy the land is scheduled to be finalized by the Aurora Urban Renewal Authority.

Denver’s residential market is gearing up for better times ahead.
Last September, home prices rose to their highest in nearly five years as indicated by the most recent S&P/Case-Shiller Home Prices Index.
