In short, there are more buyers than the number of available homes making it difficult to match the supply with demand. The Colorado Association of Realtors, the prices of homes in Colorado is going up thereby making it difficult to manage the prices as it stands at the moment. This could signify a dangerous market as far as buying of a home in Colorado is concerned.

Despite the challenges, the real estate industry in Colorado remodeling is going to be more vibrant. Of course, there are challenges which come with doing transactions during the time of COVID 19.

Colorado Fires

On August 20, 2020, Colorado Public Radio (CPR), reported the issue of fires in Colorado, more so in Glenwood Canyon. The news agency reported how smoke would burn the eyes of the residents. Scientists in Colorado blamed the fire incidences to carbon emissions and the impact of global warming not just in the US but in the world as a whole. With carbon emissions, when summer comes, it comes hotter than other summers in the past years. Of course, there is a lot of individual responsibility when it comes to starting fires, and this could over-whelm the firefighters.

The Washington Post states that some states in the US are now 2 degrees Celsius warmer than they were before. The Western slope is particularly known to be vulnerable to fires. There are three main ingredients to a fire: dry conditions, fuel for burning, and a spark. The summers are becoming highly stressful for the people of Colorado as they devise ways of staying safe.

CPR reports that it is unrealistic for the people of Colorado to leave the burden of fires to the fire fighters, simply, they are going to be over-whelmed. It is the responsibility of everyone in the society to fight the problem that comes with fires, and the people of Colorado realize this as much.


Colorado is not new to earthquakes though they are minor earthquakes. In December 2020, Bedrock, Colorado, experienced a minor earthquake at the Colorado-Utah boarder. This was reported by Seismographs Stations, University of Utah. The residents were able to feel it. The earthquake was triggered by an underground saltwater injection.

Death of Elijah McClain

The death of Elijah McClain was one of the most shaking moments in Colorado. Elijah McClain was working as a massage therapist. His family had moved to Aurora from Denver for the purpose of escaping gang violence. When he died, the results of the autopsy were not conclusive and the coroner was not able to determine the exact cause of death.

In June 2020, Aurora City Center Park was the center of protests and speakers presentation. This was in protests on the death of Elijah McClain and the way the police behaved. The day was a day of another showdown with the police, though no one was arrested. The conflict and tension continues as the people continue to seek answers.

Such incidences have damaged the reputation of the state more so in cases where the community feels that justice was not done well.

Crime in Denver

In the year 2020, sociologists noted a strong co-relation between crime and homicides. Between January 1 and July 13, there were 45 instances of murder in Denver. The death of a family member leaves others in emotional frustration, and leaving them without a steady source of income. This has made the residents have a poor perception of some states which they perceive as unsafe.

The time of COVID 19 brought a lot of frustrations on the ability to keep a job leave alone getting a job. When a community is deprived of its source of income, then they can easily turn to crime.

Unfortunately, Denver has observed a poor relationship between the police and the community. When such a relationship is poor, then, the community is not able to assist the police in their day to day work. This has made it difficult to manage crime in the state.

Impact on the Media Itself

The year 2020 had some very interesting news for the media itself. To start with, it was reported that Alden Global Capital hedge fund was planning to acquire Gannet, the most prominent newspaper in Colorado. This gathered a lot of interest because Alden Global Capital hedge fund is known to be quite aggressive in acquisition and has spread its tentacles in the country.

Critics of Alden Global Capital have termed the company as a vampire which has the ability to bleed a newspaper dry, and it has done so a number of times. The management of the company has been criticized for their tendency to maximize profits. The company strongly favors downsizing, and companies such as the Denver Post have made an open revolt against the company.

The merger of Gannett and GateHouse is one of the largest mergers that have been recorded by newspapers. This effort was approved by the European Union and the US Department of Justice. Researchers from the University of North Carolina notice that one in every five newspapers has the name Gannett.


The year 2021 will be a year of optimism. It is hoped that the COVID 19 vaccine is going to reach everyone who is interested in having one. Operation Warp Speed was a watershed moment in the management of COVID 19. With the right strategies, the vaccine will reach all the residents this year.
