If you’re ready to start looking for Five Points homes for sale while searching for a new job at the same time, keep these employers in mind:
1. Ro Pharmacy
A healthcare technology company that delivers end-to-end healthcare options for its patients via a provider network, telehealth, and proprietary pharmacy distribution, Ro recently opened a distribution center in Denver. The company chose the area because more than 10% percent of its clients live in the Rocky Mountain area, and a Denver distribution center would get prescriptions to patients the next day for no charge. Their other distribution centers are in Florida, New York, Oregon, Arizona, and Texas.
Yes, vinyl is back! And as one of the top makers of turntables, Victrola recently relocated its headquarters from New York City to Denver. The speaker and turntable manufacturer’s new HQ is located in the Golden Triangle neighborhood and, though they currently have a small staff, Victrola hopes to expand this team throughout the year. Victrola chose Denver because of its up-and-coming music scene, as well as the city’s business-friendly tax code. The icing on the cake — and what helped CEO Scott Hagen finally choose the Mile High City — was the growing amount of young talent in Denver. If you’ve just invested in Five Points real estate and want to work in the music industry, Victrola may be the place for you.

Tips on Buying Five Points Real Estate
Does working for one of these innovative companies appeal to you? Ready to start looking at Five Points homes for sale so you can live close to your new office? The Denver real estate market is currently very competitive, with homes regularly getting multiple offers and selling for an average of 4% above the asking price. To make sure you get the home you want, use these tips:

- Work with an agent who understands the ins and outs of each Denver neighborhood, including how writing an offer for a property in Five Points may be different than other neighborhoods.
