Small Living - Is it right for you? - 10/31/11 09:52 PM
There has been a lot of publicity lately about small living and ways to do it yourself for $60,000 or less. This is an incredible opportunity for anyone wanting to own their own house, build their own house, build a portable house, live more environmentally friendly, grow closer to their family, or have more land to play on. Let’s look at the amazing opportunities one-by-one. Homeownership – So you want to OWN your own house.

It's Time for Throw Blankets - 10/31/11 09:50 PM
It’s time to break out the throw blankets folks! The air is getting cold and crisp, so it’s time to snuggle in with warm beverages, good books and a great blanket. This year I’ve seen throw blankets really make big decorating pops that are worth considering for your own home. The porch areas. Don’t give up sitting outside because it’s cold out there.

Fix n’ Flips might not be your thing, so consider owning a second house which you rent out. This isn’t the first time we’ve talked about rental and vacation rental properties, and frankly, if you have a small nest egg to invest yet, this might be a great option for you. Here’s why it works. If you buy a second property say a townhouse, condo or house with a postage stamp-size yard, in a desireable part of town, you can easily rent it out to others who know they won’t be in a house for 5+ years, or who couldn’t qualify (2 comments)
Eleven Mile is off of Hwy 24, west of Woodland Park. A short drive away from the bustle of Colorado Springs, and you find yourself not only staring at mountain views, but water too. Eleven Mile allows boats, but there are plenty of areas to paddle without much wake. This time of year is especially great (1 comments)
