Hey Jim, If you have any luck in your search areas let me know. We are from Minnesota, looking for a reasonable housing area, with little snow. Make sure you let me know if you find anything. We were also checking on Colorado and New Mexico. Thanks, Dorene

jim, four feet of snow in walsenburg is indeed a freak event. it will snow a few inches but never lasts long. i live higher up in the mountains south of la veta at about 8,500 feet and we normally don't even have a four foot base. i wouldn't worry about snow in walsenburg or trinidad. la veta is a wonderful town but it is getting expensive. if anybody wants to live in la veta, i'd buy now before it really gets out of hand. it's been discovered. taxes are low in the entire area with very little if any crime.

How are the house prices in La Veta? Is there many 3 bedroom houses on the market? We were looking in the $70,000 to $80,000 range. Also how fast is fast? If you or anyone else could be of help let me know. Thanks, Dorene

Yorkie_Mom, look at Raton, NM. You can find homes in the 70s to 80s or even less. There aren't a lot of homes, being small, but it is a cheap place to live. Another really cheap place to live is Tucumcari, NM, but jobs are really tight and not much shopping. You have to generally go to Amarillo or ABQ for more than basic stuff.

Thanks for the help crackerjack, we have been looking in those areas also, but we still hope to find something in Colorado some where.
We did find a couple of places that we liked in Colorado that we could afford, the question at hand would be, are they still going to be on the market until the end of January?
In the mean time we are still looking in case those houses sell before we can get things tied up on this end. I hope not, but who knows, so anyone from Colorado that knows of more areas to check on in that state let us know.
I hope the place I really like doesn't sell, but I can't control that. Thanks everyone. Have a great day!!!

Yes, we have been checking into that area also. Couldn't find much for houses on the market yet, but that could change.
We heard it is a beautiful area, the temps seem to be just right.
It's to bad that we can't take a run out that way now, just to get the feel of things, and find what area we really want to settle down at. Keep the ideas coming, it gives me something to do, instead of just sitting and waiting for the end of January to get here. Thanks for the help.
