Colorado was #36 in House Price Appreciation in 2007!

According to an 88 page report from the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO), Colorado real estate sales were number 36 in the list of states that had "...positive four-quarter appreciation" in 2007...". This report has a negative title, but it has lots of positive data. The list of states and their ranking by appreciation over 2007 is on page 25 of the report

80% of states had positive appreciation in 2007 according to page 25 of the report. And, of the 291 cities monitored in the report, 65% had appreciation. Statistics can be used to make any point you want. This report uses a few different set of statistics to show different aspects of the housing market.

US real estate still provides one of the best available forms of investment for people looking to grow wealth over the long run.
