I may be coming to check out CS next month to look at the housing and various neighborhoods. Where should I go to look? I dont know if there are many bad areas but I want to stay away from there. Maybe places with newer houses in the lower $200s. Give me some ideas so I can plan it out!

Just to add another question:

Do a lot of the newer homes in COS have basements?

Briargate is affordable based on your $ amount depending upon how big a house you need. I live in a 3 bedroom, two full bath, two car garage that would list for around $180K I am guessing. It's not very big though but its okay.

Areas around Norwood and just south and east of that would be in your ballpark too.

Most any area is nice except for the Pikes Peak Park area and points around it. (that's southeast C Springs).

Oh and CitznFish - it varies from house to house but yes, many houses (even those built in the 60s, 70s and 80s have basements. If you require a basement, one would want to talk to a local realtor.

90% of homes here in that price range have basements. Some of the new ones in that range don't- just because a few of the builders have started building some more affordable homes without basements to keep prices down.

Alot of the builders have alot of GREAT deals going on right now. $10,000 worth of incentives, etc. The next couple months would be a great time to look into new builds. Except for the west side of town, most areas have homes going up in your area. bashep

I dont need anything too big as long as its newer or nice and in a good neighborhood. 1600+ square feet is fine.

I lived in and around Colorado Springs for twelve years before moving to Alaska back in April. Unfortunately, I'm now in Iraq with the Navy Seabees.
I purchased a new home in Fountain for $155,000 back in 2004. It had three bedrooms, two baths, basement, living room, family room with fireplace, kitchen/dining, and garage. The neighbors were fantastic, I still keep in touch with them. You will get more house for your money in that "country" area. Everything is just a short drive away.
Respectfully,
Leroy
