Colorado Springs Mountain Bike Trails - 04/29/08 09:55 PM
The Greenland Open Space is a nice addition to the already great trails that exist in Northern El Paso County and Southern Douglas County, Colorado. Greenland is an easy to moderate hike, bike or ride with a combination of flat sections and some moderate to steepish rolling hills all for the most part well groomed. This is a great place to take the kids or inexperienced mountain bike riders. This 3,600 acres of open space and trails is due to the good deeds of a large number of people. This area was donated to Douglas County and is now part of (0 comments)

Colorado Springs Real Estate-First Quarter 2008 Market Report - 04/09/08 06:05 PM
As predicted in the annual report, the first quarter of 2008 was as tumultuous as any time in the recent market slowdown. Characteristics of the First Quarter, 2008 include: low prices, low selling activity, high inventory, tightened credit and bad press coverage. What is not characteristic of the First Quarter, 2008: increases in local foreclosures, a continued increase in listing stimulus, and the end of civilization as we know it. The big bail out in the financial markets orchestrated by the Federal Reserve was not on Main Street but on Wall Street with the giant $20 billion bailout of Bear Sterns. (0 comments)

March Numbers are in for-Colorado Springs Real Estate - 04/04/08 06:58 PM
The numbers are in for March and it's a mixed story, some good some bad. Listing Volume was off 18.9%. For March 2008. This is actually good as it seems to indicate the buildup of listing inventory may be leveling-off. Don't forget, we are heading into the busy buying season and this is when we generally see an increase in inventory. Those of us that have been counseling buyer to get off the fence may actually been giving good advice.On the down side, demand was off the same amount, with sales at 722, off 19% from March 2007, a bad March (0 comments)

Rivers Divide-A Hidden Colorado Real Estate Gem - 04/01/08 06:38 PM
The eastern part of El Paso County, Colorado offers home buyers the opportunity to stretch out into some incredibly wide open spaces while taking in some truly incredible views to the west of "Pikes Peak" and the Front Range. These areas generally feature rolling grasslands, very few trees and great views, with the exception of a handful of subdivisions located in and around the Bijou Basin. The Bijou Basin is a well-watered grassland nestled in an enclosed valley surrounded by pine ridges and interesting landforms such as Fremont Fort. In many places the pines feather into the grassland or extend into (1 comments)
