My wife and I are thinking of moving to the Pueblo area to be closer to grandkids. We would like to know if anyone has any recommendations about specific areas in and around Pueblo for a house in the 150K range? We want to have natural gas heat. I've read some discussions on Pueblo West and Pueblo and would like to hear more on which place would be best for a retired couple. Thanks. P.S. can't wait to get away from Indianapolis and see blue skies again.

Default Thinking of moving to Pueblo area

Thanks for the info on Pueblo West. We lived in Colorado Springs twice while I was in the Air Force and agree with the congestion--way too crowded for my taste. My wife and I are taking a trip out there later this week and plan to look around Pueblo and Pueblo West. How are the utilities there? We plan on getting a house with natural gas. I noticed most of the houses don't have central A/C, I thought it got pretty hot there in the summer. Would you recommend central A/C or an evaporative cooler? Thanks

My Spera home came with central air for an additional 800 bucks. Awesome deal, but it's the furthest thing from my mind right now. Swamp coolers work for sure out here, but they are a hassle. You'll probably need a humidifier.

I think you can be set up with sewage and natural gas if you live to the east end of Pueblo West, and you won't have too much property to maintain. If you want an acre+ of land, you'll have to go further west. Then you might have to settle for propane and septic tank/leach lines. But your water bill will be a lot cheaper. If you get the extra land, make sure you adopt a few ferrets and train them to eat prairie dogs and rabbits.

Another big chunk of Colorado's ranch land and open space to be devoured for more automobile-dependent sprawl. Oh well, we can just use up the land and burn up the fuel that our grandkids will need to survive just that much faster--survival is THEIR problem, right?

Default us too

My husband and I are looking to move to Pueblo also. Saw something on Pueblo springs rancn, north end of Peublo. Does anyone know about this and if it is real or just a dream of builders. Hope you find your location soon, house hunting and price shopping is very time consuming and stressful. Good Luck

Pueblo Springs Ranch is still just a gleam in the eye of the Las Vegas developer. Given this economy and housing market, I don't expect it to amount to much for many years, unless our nation receives an economic miracle.

I am more optimistic about Pueblo Springs Ranch. Here is a map of the proposed development. Everything I hear is that the final annexation will happen this year. As far as the economy I think it will help it, by 4th quarter we should be coming out of the recession and the developers plan on bringing in the major companies from out of state and with places like California becoming more expansive I think it will be easy for them to get some companies to move here. BTW as a side note I have been studying the map and the size of the tech/business park is larger then even I thought it would be and in fact extends into El Paso County! I now see why I was told it will be larger then the Denver Tech Center and I think be kind of a centralized location for companies between Pueblo and Colorado Springs, I guess that is obvious since the name is Pueblo Springs lol I am just glad they put Pueblo first!

Here is a link to the web site: The link: http://www.cvldenver.com/

As a reminder this is what CU said about Pueblo:

oPueblo County - Historically, Pueblo County has experienced moderate population growth. This trend will change when the Pueblo Springs Ranch is complete. The 23,000-acre subdivision in northeast Pueblo County is expected to have about 75,000 households, or 200,000 people when completed. The Historic Arkansas Riverwalk Project has begun to pay the economic dividends its creators intended. In August 2007, the new 44,000-square-foot headquarters of the Professional Bull Riders Association was dedicated, and new restaurants and other establishments have opened near the new building.
