Hey all! I am making the decision to move from Dallas to Colorado. I am a teacher and am in talks with someone from the Glenwood Springs district. I just found out today and looked up real estate in Glenwood Springs and sheesh-- a little more pricey than my city outside of Dallas! Are there any affordable places around Glenwood? Thanks!

New Castle and Rifle are reasonable commutes, but still expensive. It's a great area but may be a shock due to price, lack of big city amenities and snow.

tom021, l looked at some of your older posts to get a better feel for what you were looking for in an area and saw that “super progressive” and very liberal were important to you. If that is still a priority, Rifle and New Castle would be at odds with that criteria. However like Dogmama said the prices might be a little lower than Glenwood.

Also should have mentioned if you are on Facebook join the group Roaring Fork Swap, lots of people post rentals on there and things go fast. There are some other groups that focus on rentals in that area too that you can focus on.

If you are looking for super progressive and liberal, Glenwood is slightly more than Rifle or New Castle but the Western Slope is pretty mixed in general, lots of ranchers as well as transplants. We all mix pretty well, politics is prevalent here but there are plenty of unifying issues too that transcend BS. People are very different in Colorado compared to Texas.
