NOW is the Time to Buy in Colorado Springs


Have you wanted to make a move to Colorado Springs? Or maybe you already live in our beautiful city but are ready to purchase your first home? We don’t blame you. We believe Colorado Springs is the best city in Colorado. With proximity to mountain adventure and scenery that will blow your mind, people can’t seem to stay away!

If you have been wanting to buy or are planning to in 2018, we have a little secret for you: NOW is the time!

With everyone recovering from the holidays, January is not prime buying season. This means less competition and fewer offers on homes.

If this is you, we’d love to sit down with you and discuss a timeline and your house hunting goals. Our team at Woodleaf Realty is not only experienced, fun, and committed to our clients, but we love Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region!

Moreover, we would love to show you some of the hidden and undiscovered neighborhoods in our city. There are so many beautiful areas in Colorado Springs that many people don’t know about or overlook. Depending on your budget and what you are looking for in a home, these areas could be a perfect fit for you and your needs!

And if you’re considering buying but afraid of overpaying, we recommend ensuring your agent includes the appraisal clause in your offer even if you are not using a loan to make your purchase. This is something our Woodleaf agents often recommend to our clients if they sense their offer is higher than the actual value due to competing offers.  Appraisers are the cross-check for the purchase price. By assessing the property, they ensure that the purchase price aligns with the current market – even if there are multiple offers on a home.  This process is completed before closing and gives our clients many options before closing should the appraiser’s value come in lower than the purchase price.  Think of it as buyer protection.

Another excellent and current purchasing option in Colorado Springs is builder inventory. Many construction companies are selling new homes now for move-in in early to late spring 2018. You can tour model homes, pick your finishes, and move into a new place just as the weather begins to warm up! It’s wise to have one of our experienced team members represent you.  Our team can also help you with this process and it comes at no cost to you as the buyer.

Whether you know what you want and where you want to move, or you are just looking to discuss ideas and possibilities, give us a call.

We look forward to helping you find your next home in beautiful Colorado Springs this year!
