Trailing only San Jose, CA and San Francisco, CA, Denver is 3rd in the nation for real estate markets that have recovered since the Great Recession ended in early 2012.

Trulia ranks Denver No. 3 among U.S. markets for their recovery since home prices bottomed out nationally in early 2012.

The question posed by Trulia was: Where were the best and worst places to have bought a home at the market bottom in early 2012?

Among the 100 largest U.S. markets,  Seattle, WA and Anaheim, CA rounded out the top 5.

In Albuquerque, prices have actually come down 5.11 percent since early 2012, Trulia figures.

Trulia based its ranking on more than just home values. It also took into account unemployment rates, housing vacancy rates, wages and job growth.

According to Trulia, since early 2012, metro Denver has seen a 29.69 percent gain in home values (as compared to the national average of 7.68 percent) and 11.49 percent job growth (versus the national gain of 6.48 percent).

It said unemployment in Denver dropped 44.77 percent during that period and wages grew 6.55 percent.
