I agree too Tony. I think Cosmic misunderstood what JMM was saying. JMM was just trying to say, "Tell Californians that Colorado sucks so they don't move here in droves and overpopulate our already overpopulated state. Move to Arizona, Utah, Idaho, etc".

Reps to the three of you and chalk it up to a misunderstanding.

Default The issues remain

We live in Carlsbad CA, but are moving to Colorado when my husband retires next month. Why? taxes & property values are sky high! Bought current 1230 sq. ft. condo for $345,000, now worth $285,000. We can buy 2000 sq. ft. HOUSE in Colorado for under $200,000.

I love CA, my family has lived here 5 generations (since 1890). Decades of 1-party control of state senate & house have created a situation where CA has 12% of national population, but 30% of welfare recipients. 60% of CA residents pay no taxes and vote to increase rates on the 40% who do... This is quickly becoming a state of the very rich and the poor.

We are fortunate to both have pension income, over $100,000 a year... but still can't afford to stay here in retirement.

Bev, where in CO can you buy a 2000sqft house for under 200k? certainly not in the front range.

Hell, I just found NINE such homes in zip code 80920, and there are a lot more in COLO SPGS that would fit those parameters.

Largest was a 5/3 with 2666 sq ft, in a nice area, right off of Research Pkwy and Rangewood Drive, MLS #749542, a short sale, $171k.

This thread started 6 years ago, when you could get a decent house for a decent price, now you are looking down around Csprings and Pueblo if you are looking for a decent size city.

Having done research on cost of living compared to average income for my job, it is amazing how the pay in Colorado has stayed the same while cost of living has increased tremendously over the last few years. Now with the difference in pay Denver, fort collins, and especially boulder are not far off from the net when compared to some of the Larger more well known areas.

I just used the advanced search on realtor.com and found 24 SFHs in Littleton with a minimum of 2000 sq ft and no more than $200k.

The homes are out there....

See if this search works....
