I always thought of Gleneagle as being tract-housing. Most housing in the north-east part of town are tract-type houses. Additionally, a typical commute for your husband would be around 30 minutes from the south side of town, going through your residential neighborhood. That's in good weather, and we've had some construction that would affect north I-25.


Honestly, from the sounds of it, Gleneagle/Monument is not for you as you are working in the south side of the Springs, and you want to avoid planned tract housing. I'd consider renting until you find an awesome house in Skyway.

Parts of Gleneagle are definitely cookie cutter housing, but if you stick roughly between the golf club and Fox Run park (and immediately surrounding the golf club), it's a little older, more established, and not what I'd call cookie cutter at all.

Our trip is not until the last weekend in March, so I am still internet shopping at the moment. However, you have been very helpful and as it stands now, Gleneagle is definitely on our short list of places to look. There are a few houses there that I would be happy with now, but who knows whether they will be on the market in 5-6 more weeks, so I am trying not to like something too much!

Thanks for asking, though!

Good thinking TX. If a house is really priced at market, not above market, and the agent does a good job listing it with plentiful photos to draw in prospective customers, it'll likely be gone within 6 months.

Actually, average days on market for single family homes in El Paso County was 72 days in the last quarter of 2013. A home on the market for 6 months is unusual - probably overpriced or something undesireable about it.

Just sold one in Briargate in 60 days, but it was priced right.

If the house has not sold in 90 days (per most realtors) the house is OVER-PRICED.

A story in our local paper made we wonder what's going on with golf. It seems to be on the decline and courses are closing.

Story is about the golf course in the King's Deer community here in the Colorado Springs / Monument area.

Excerpt: It's been a rough winter for area golf courses. Gleneagle Golf Club closed Nov. 1 ... Monument Hill Country Club closed its course between March and June ... Golf courses have been on the decline ... The numbers peaked in 2005 at more than 16,000 courses and 30 million golfers, but has declined by about 400 courses and 4.3 million golfers since ... rounds of golf played annually dropped to 463 million in 2011 from 518 million in 2000 ....
