When people see the prices of Colorado Springs area homes that are in the country, it is not uncommon for them to ask "Are the benefits of living in the country really worth it?" Other times, people are a bit more concerned about the commute. As a real estate agent that lives in the country, I will be the first to admit: Country life is not for everyone. Yet there are many benefits to living in the country.
This blog post will be the first in a series of photo essays that is intended to show the benefits of living in the country.
Benefits of Living in the Country: The Babies
The babies. They are just too cute.
When you live in the country, you get to see the babies. If you don't have your own farm animals, you can enjoy seeing other people's babies in the pastures as you drive to town or on your way home.
If you live in a rural subdivision, you might be limited on the type and number of animals that you can have. Most rural subdivisions outside of the Colorado Springs city limits, which is often referred to as unincorporated El Paso County, allow a couple of horses. Others may allow other livestock only if they are being used as 4H or FFA projects. It is very important to check you subdivision's rules. Generally speaking, you will find that the rules regarding horses and livestock are typically very reasonable for the size of the lots.
The good news is that if you want goats, pigs, or a couple of cows; there are lots of 35 and 40 acre lots in El Paso county that are unrestricted.
If you would like help finding a lot or home in the Colorado Springs area or El Paso County, please do not hesitate to call or send a text. I love helping people make their dream of living in the country come true.
If you are thinking about selling, I hope you will call as soon as possible. The inventory of available rural homes in Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas is still very low. As result, it is a great time to sell.
