My husband grew up in New Mexico and always raved about living near the mountains and all the winter sports he loved.
FWIW I moved here about a year and a half ago with 2 high schoolers. I was worried about pulling them away from their friends but they both love it here.

Yes, it's a newer area and a very good area.

Google Cordera and Wolf Ranch.

I doubt $350K will suffice for a new 2000 sq ft 3/2 in those spots. My guess is $500K min.

I was referring to the zip code area. Youíre not going to find anything nice in Colorado Springs for $350k.

If he grew up in New Mexico he should be able to tell you all about our weather. New Mexico is very similar, although a bit warmer and a bit drier.

Says who? We need all postings to be as accurate as possible.

Realtor.com shows 431 3BR/2BA SFHs all over town from $300k-$350k and most are nice.

I lived in New Mexico for 40 years before moving here 3 years ago. It is warmer and much drier there (although still dry here). The other thing is we have crazy weather here not at all like New Mexico. One day it can be 75 degrees and the next day it could snow 4 inches or you could have a very bad hail storm. Itís really erratic weather wise. I never pack up all of my summer clothes because I may wear them for some days in the winter. Same goes for warmer clothes for spring and autumn. But I love it!

We moved with 2 kids who were 10 and 7 at the time. They love it here! Lots of opportunities!
