We're in our 20s-30s with a small child. We would love to move out west. One of the options is my H can get a job tranfer to either colorado springs (less likely) , lakewood and denver ( more likely). But we could also move anywhere in CO. We would love to have acerage. Does anyone know of any areas that might fit our wants? How are the school? Nieghborhoods? Extra? Thanks in Advance.

Precious little acreage in the Denver metro area but if you have enough money anything is possible.

One can find acreage just outside of COLO SPGS and "near" Denver in far south places like Parker, Castle Rock, Larkspur, Elizabeth. On the far north side there is Thornton, Brighton and other outlying areas.

Your budget for a place will determine how much and where. Outlying areas with a water well can have issues of water usage, a good realtor should be able to steer you through the bizarre COLO water laws.

We typically recommend renting for a year before buying as there's so much to see and learn about the area. In that year you can research this very large area and learn life in a low-rainfall area before taking the plunge on acreage.

Most school districts are very good to excellent.

Most areas are safe.

It's a big state but most people and jobs are along the I-25 corridor between Fort Collins and COLO SPGS.
