Hi, Coloradoan readers.

Business reporter Pat Ferrier here.

If you’ve lived in Northern Colorado for more than a minute, you know what housing prices are doing. They’re steadily climbing, putting home ownership out of reach for many first-time homebuyers and others.

Now, the mantra "drive 'till you qualify" has a whole new meaning.

Wellington and Severance, once the go-to spots for affordable and attainable housing, are no longer so affordable. That’s pushing people farther into Weld County or even Cheyenne, Wyoming, in search of attainable housing.

Check out my subscriber-exclusive story this week. I hope you find it enlightening, if not too depressing.

As always, thanks for reading.
