Where would his job be?

Price range for a house? Rental budget if renting?

Look into Manitou Springs. It is a beautiful small town! I live in Texas, but I also would LOVE to move to Colorado. You will fall in love with this town, I promise!

Manitou is very pretty, but kinda pricy... right outside of CO springs. My husband is a pipefitter for a local 208 out of Denver, highly recommend it! They treat him good. I would recommend Fort Collins, Windsor, Loveland, Greeley area, Northern Colorado. All smaller towns, very pretty, reasonably priced-especially right now..And they have it all, lots of shopping, lots of yearly events for the fam., colleges, dining galore, theaters..you name it. Its not crazy busy here, like Denver or CO Springs. And the school districts seem to always be lookin.

We are also looking at Colorado, but we are moving from the UK. The life style looks fantastic. i work as a construction manager with a carpentry back ground and we have 2 kids and the dog as well. We are looking for a good safe area not to far from the mountains, any help would be great .

Default Re: Consider Grand Junction

Grand Junction is very pretty and has not been affected by the housing shortage. Contact me for more info. Bosco

Many thanks Bosco, had a quick look seems nice will have a better look and try to find some construction companies local but i dont mind traveling a bit either.
The main thing for us is getting a better life for us and the kids, it is so expensive here
and the crime is getting very high, time to take the plunge .

Somebody moving from London will be sadly disappointed by Colorado wages, lack of vacation time (they take several months a year), and the pollution in the valleys will make your eyes burn when the cold air settles in for the winter. There is a serious meth problem that is made worse by the energy boom, and the Californians moving in have brought their crime and gangster children with them.

Any women wanting to move to Colorado from someplace humid should also know that the desert air in Colorado causes you to get wrinkles at a much younger (early 20s) age than other parts of the world.
