Celebrating Halloween in Colorado Springs

Celebrating Halloween in Colorado Springs

Colorado Springs loves Halloween. I've never seen a city so enthusiastic about this holiday. There are many Halloween activities to enjoy here during the month of October. This weekend my teenage daughter went to the Haunted Mines, something she enjoys every year. The Haunted Mines takes place in the Northgate area at the old Mining Museum. Each Halloween a group of volunteers turn the museum and grounds into a spectacular haunted house.   Haunts are 7:30pm to 10:00pm Friday and Saturday of this week, and continue Thursday through Saturday from the 13th to the 30th. General admission tickets are $20. Plan on being there about an hour and a half. It's a perfect scare for the teens. I recommend not bringing children under 12. It's a little scary for young ones. Next week I'll write about my favorite Halloween activity for them. 

 

Below is an excerpt from the mining web site:

"The Haunted Mines is a volunteer charitable organization that raises money for the Pikes Peak region.  We do this by producing a professional, thrilling Halloween event for our community’s enjoyment, by teaching our volunteers valuable skills that they can put to use at our events and carry with them into their adult lives. Our goal is philanthropy and helping others as we teach!"

I keep saying it's a Seller's market.  Here is proof.  This is one of my recent listings.  It's a really cute 2-story home located in the Greyhawk neighborhood in Northgate.  It was built in 2011.  It's got 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, finished basement and over 2,300 finished square feet.  I put it on the market last Tuesday, and two days later we were under contract.  In the course of two days on market we had about seven showings.  The offer which was accepted was a strong one with few concessions.  And clearly, if that one hadn't gone through there would have been another offer shortly.

The real estate market in Colorado Springs is crazy, folks.  Homes are selling fast and at top dollar.  Sellers are often getting full price or are close to that.  We are even seeing buyers come down from Denver to buy homes here and commute, mostly because there is so little inventory in Denver right now.

It's a great time to sell a house here.  Woo hoo, I say!
