Colorado Springs Homeowners: 2018 Is the Year to Sell

2018 colorado springs

Hey Colorado Springs homeowners! Are you sitting on a gold mine?  Are you ready for a change of scenery and to stop shoveling the snow? Our team of expert real estate agents can help you get your home prepared for the market!

2018 is the year to sell in Colorado Springs, and here are a few reasons why:

Colorado Springs Welcomes Over 6 Million Visitors Per Year

You can thank Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, Red Rocks Park, The Olympic Training Center, and all the scenic trails for the surge of tourists during the summer. Like it or not, Colorado Springs is a hot summer travel destination, especially for the surrounding states and Midwesterners.

And, while we love our surrounding states, we can’t help but notice that these visitors seem to find Colorado has a lot more to offer. That’s why so many new residents happen to be from nearby Kansas, Texas, Nebraska, and Wyoming. Even Californians find that our mountains and lower housing prices are incentives enough to move.

As long as the tourists come and Pikes Peak keeps showing off, Colorado Springs will continue to see a healthy, desirable housing market. If you’re looking to sell, we can almost guarantee you that you will find a buyer (or ten).  🙂

Colorado Springs is an Education Mecca

Apart from the military bases that bring in thousands of new residents each year, Colorado Springs has a plethora of fantastic schools and universities. Colorado College and the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs (UCCS) both bring in thousands of students each semester—and many of them stay after graduation. Excellent colleges, six military bases, and award-winning school districts keep the city’s economy healthy and housing in-demand.

Denver is Overpriced

We love nearby Denver, but many people can no longer afford it. And with I-25 running right through the middle of our city, many people are moving south and opting to commute to work in the “big city.” This, again, means buyers who are ready to put in an offer on your home.

Whether you’re just beginning to strategize a move or you’re ready to sell, Colorado Springs’ most experienced and fun agents can help figure a plan that’s right for you.  Give our team at Woodleaf Realty a call!  We are happy to chat in your home, at a nearby cafe, or over the phone. We look forward to helping you make your move this year!
