was used for coal mining from the late 1800's to the 1950's?

Foreclosure Properties for Buyers - Just the Facts
Buying a home that has been foreclosed on can be a very good deal, especially if you have money to invest in fixing it up.  Buyers may end up with more in equity than the amount they spend fixing the property, particularly when they do some of the work yourself.   Even if you're a first time homebuyer with no money for cosmetic or other repairs, a foreclosure may be within your reach with creative financing that allows you to finance the repairs based on the repaired value of the home.

colorado spring real estate: No, no, no ----- Don't let your seller do this! - 07/28/08 08:54 PM
Home Sellers mistake in Colorado Springs -- Buyer's gain
I showed 6 homes yesterday to my buyer who is in the military and looking at buying his first house in Fountain which is south of Colorado Springs.  Very exciting times for him!  Nothing better than first time home buyers, as they are so excited.
We pulled up to the last home in Fountain and the seller was still at the house.  No problem I thought, we'll just look through the house anyway.   The seller had 3 young girls, so it probably wasn't that easy for her to leave.  While I was … (88 comments)

Adding more sleeping rooms, meeting space, a pool, and spa facilities will give it the ability to compete for convention and meeting bookings; which provides the "bread and butter" income for most properties.  
Local residents are concerned that the expansion will change their views, increase road traffic, and hurt their property value; all valid concerns.  Part of the charm on Manitou Springs is that it … (0 comments)
