Without water, power to the site (yet or ever), possibly on dirt roads, with little tree cover... cheap. With some, most or all the desirables, less cheap but probably less than most CO places. A good part of real estate prices is based on availability / quality of nearby jobs. Walsenburg will have some but at the level of a small town. On the interstate but a good ways from bigger cities.

It would help if we knew the reason you were interested in land in Colorado.

We've a lot of threads on land in and around the San Luis Valley (SLV) that warn people of the land swindles going on as they sell worthless arid land to people who haven't done their due diligence on all facets of land ownership - especially the insane laws on ownership, access and use of water. The advice in those threads is almost totally applicable to land anywhere in COLO.

I truly believe Walsenburg has potential for a real estate bubble. After Denver, Colorado Springs, and Pueblo a little max out in housing prices comparable to California, then either Walsenburg or La Junta is next.

Interesting development: Walsenburg allowing tiny houses. The World
Salida apparently too, to some degree. Commercial builder is the focus of the article but I assume others can do the same.

You're going to be waiting for a while on that.

This article from March 2016 Tiny house trends: Sprout looks to 'dominate' market as developer of nation's largest tiny home community | Construction Dive suggests the tiny houses are getting more interest from empty nesters than young people and that the development in Salida is moving faster than Walsenburg. http://sprouttinyhomes.com/salida-community/ This company is making pretty pricey units for the size.


For all the talk about significant actions coming this summer, I can't find any articles that document it. Even the company's site still refers to them as planned communities and just show drawings instead of photos of the real thing.


Salida community was presented as all lease based. If you are desperate for any housing in Salida it might work. But it would reduce the appeal to me. I wouldn't be thrilled to pay nearly the same for a super tiny rental as a traditional one and be surrounded by even more neighbors. I think a lot of people want to own, not rent.


There was an article about the group of friends buying a piece of property in the southeast U.S. to site a group of tiny houses. Maybe tiny house movement will look up with co-housing / intentional community movement. Might be better to live close together with intentionally chosen neighbors than just whoever wants to buy or lease them.


Apparently there is a tiny hotel complex in Lyons, CO. But the price they are charging is quite high imo. The point to me of going tiny was cost saving, not chic novelty.

Unless they need to work and don't have skills that can be utilized by the Penal System.
