The Colorado Springs real estate market is extremely active and has been for several years now. The area's popularity and draw has led to the inability for supply to catch up with the demand, and all indicators do not show this slowing any time soon.
Year after year people are realizing that Colorado Springs is one of the last tourist destinations that offers residents and visitors so much while remaining affordable. Most tourist-like locations are too costly to live in and offer limited views and activities, but that is not the case for Colorado Springs. It is still, for now, affordable to live here, offers great views for everyone, and there is plenty to do here, regardless of the season or person.
Beyond the 243 sunny days a year, the ability to enjoy outdoor activities year-round, the majestic views of Pikes Peak and the Rocky Mountains are evidence that “The Springs” is a wonderful place to call home. We have been ranked nationally for several sought-after qualities. While some people may worry about snow and cold weather, we have a common expression here, “if you don't like the weather, wait ten minutes.”

- According to the data, we are 4.5% higher than the national average's cost of living. In comparison, the state of Colorado is approximately 21.4% higher than the national average.
However, Colorado Springs is lower than the state and nation’s cost of living averages in every category with the exception of housing costs. We attribute this to the area’s insatiable demand.
- Pueblo tends to have a slightly lower cost of living and housing and still remains a popular spot due to the warmer weather, Pueblo reservoir, and history.
