Searching for the Right Schools!

pencil-1037609_1280

What are the Best Schools in Colorado Springs?

As real estate professionals, we are often asked to help find the "best school" and while we cannot steer you in the direction of a certain district, school or neighborhood for a variety of reasons, the truth is the "right school" is different for every family and student. I have a friend with 6 students in different schools/districts; they did the research to find what's best for each of their students! I'm here to help you find more information so you can make an informed decision.

Once you have selected the right school or district for your student or family, try out our Springs Homes awesome new search-by-school-district capability.

That’s a different and much longer story.  I had visited Colorado Springs once or twice before, and this young, recent college grad was thrilled that this town was going to be my own. I quickly fell in...

Tips on Buying a House

Tips on Buying a House
In Residential Real Estate a Seller's market is defined as having less than six months of available inventory, and this means that sellers have the advantage. I don't know what you call a market where inventories are measured in weeks not months. If you are trying to buy a house, you already understand the frustration this type of market creates. T...
