The $4.65 billion sale of the Denver Broncos results in $41 million being refunded to cities and counties that help pay for the stadium.
Children in Denver and six other metropolitan area counties could soon benefit from billionaire Rob Walton’s purchase of the Denver Broncos.
The Metropolitan Football Stadium District, the division of state government responsible for building and protecting taxpayers’ investment in the Broncos’ public realm, will soon distribute more than $41 million of the $4.65 billion that Walton and its ownership group have paid for the team, Matt Sugar, the district’s stadium business manager, confirmed Thursday.
The origins of this multimillion-dollar tax windfall date back to 1998. That’s when 57% of voters in what was then the six-nation Denver metro...

If your needs have changed and you’re working remotely, we have great news. The KB Home Office has been specifically designed to meet your priorities so you can enjoy a dedicated room to host online presentations, in-person meetings and boost your pro...
We’ve all played that game: What would you put in your dream house? Maybe a movie theater, an arcade, or an industrial kitchen? Or even something crazy, like a shark pool?! It’s too bad that most of us will never see the money necessary to make our dreams come true, but there is a little silver lining: If you’ve dreamed of it, chances are that there’s a celebrity mansion that has it.
There’s no end to what the imagination can create with the right amount of money, after all, so there are some homes and compounds out there that are either truly incredible or truly absurd (or perhaps both). So while you keep scratching off lotto tickets, you can look at these insane celebrity mansions and keep dreaming, planning, and scheming.

Another month rolls in with a familiar story line for Denver Real Estate. Low inventory and high buyer demand are driving record breaking numbers. The current active listings represent the lowest number we have seen in any September, by nearly 2,000 units. For detached single family homes, that number is a mere 3,000 homes, down 8 percent from August and 50 percent year-over-year.
Generally, the fall brings a lull in buyer activity and active listings. However, with people spending more time at home, a high percentage of kids virtual learning, and the influx of people moving to Denver, it appears that will not be the case this year.
