Moving can be a little stressful.. simply just getting there, but once you are in town you will feel relaxed and have one part of your adventure behind you.

Good luck!

We went and visited back in October and while I was there I handed out as many resumes as possible. Believe it or not Splish is one of the few salons that I didn't give a resume to, I filled out an online application on Splish's website.

The cost of living is definitely higher than it is in South Carolina but SC HAS to be one of the cheapest places to live as far as I can tell.

I'm originally from Greenville...and am a Clemson grad. Worked the summer I graduated at the bowling alley in Easley. It's a small world.

Anyway, have been here in Colorado Springs area for 30+ years. Am not a skiier, nor do I know very much about real estate prices outside this area. But can tell you, I would not expect that there will be too much available for purchase within your price range if anywhere near a major ski area.

My sister, who moved three years to Frisco, CO (an hour or so west of Denver, near several ski areas) just paid $500,000 for a 1,200 SF upgraded condo in that town. But she was able to afford that price because she had sold her own 1,100 SF condo, that she had paid $235,000 for just three years ago, for $450,000. Prices near ski areas are abit ridiculous. Therefore, considering your price range, you may well need to buy a ways from the ski areas.

Thank you, I won't be buying anytime soon. I plan on renting for a while at least until I KNOW that Evergreen is right.
