Colorado Springs Real Estate Market

Thinking about moving to Colorado Springs, or getting into the hot real estate in this booming city? It’s no secret that Colorado Springs is one of the hottest housing markets right now across the United States. With the prime location of the city right up against the breathtaking Pike’s Peak mountain, it’s hard to beat such a beautiful and attractive place to live. Whether you are looking to buy or sell real estate in this market, you won’t be disappointed. If you’re looking to sell real estate in this market you will more than likely be showered with offers, and prepare to have a fast closing. If you’re on the buyer side, prepare to submit multiple offers, and prepare to stay competitive. For buyers, you can enjoy and look forward to the unique and brand new real estate that Colorado Springs has to offer. Choose between a home built in the early 1900’s on the west side of town full of character, or a beautiful newly built home on the other side of town; Colorado Springs has it all.

Colorado Springs is quickly turning into a “little Denver,” and this calls for an increase in housing numbers. New home builders are having a hay-day with the growing population and housing demand in Colorado Springs. They are making up for the low resale inventory numbers, and providing new homes that aren’t only gorgeous, but affordable as well. With such low inventory in the $200-$300’s of resale homes, new builds are becoming more and more affordable and a viable buying option for many buyers.

The housing market in Colorado Springs is very popular and it’s important that you do your research on not only the city itself, but also on your realtor. Choose a realtor who has extensive knowledge in the market you are wanting to buy or sell real estate in. Colorado Springs real estate is very unique and although it may seem to sell itself, it’s important to know the fine print as well.

Homes For Heroes

Heroes Deserve Their Rewards

Serving others is the most humble and noble career any of us can decide to take on. Many of us work in some form of service – but a select few serve with a greater degree of sacrifice attached to it. These are our heroes. If you are reading this, you are likely one of these heroes or are closely related to one. For your service and sacrifice, I cannot possibly thank you enough.

Heroes Defined

For me, heroes are those who give so much in order to serve our families, communities and country every day. For their service they get back so little, most notably a smaller but well- earned paycheck. I recognize these heroes as firefighters, law-enforcement, military/veterans, healthcare professionals/EMS, and teachers for all they have done to make our country better and keep us safe. Your service is appreciated so much more than what you are compensated for.

Enough Sacrifice

Compensating our community heroes, giving something back to them, is the idea behind Homes for Heroes. The least we can do for our heroes is provide the resources and services to help our heroes stretch their dollars. We must also recognize that many in these professions are not physically able to work as long as others in less demanding fields. For these reasons and more, I work closely with many hero organizations to ensure they have the home they want and the rewards they deserve.

Even as our heroes love what they do to serve their fellow citizens and communities here is southern Colorado, those with the biggest hearts know the time will come when they just can’t give any more. I consider it a true privilege to help our heroes earn their rewards with their real estate transactions. Serving those of you who serve us is a great honor, it’s my thanks to you.
