My son's house was built in 1879 and has been updated , there's no HOA, the school and library is just up the street and the "street" is a dirt road. He doesn't have much land though. Lots of ranchers out that way and we wondered how easily they'd be willing to sell their land and livelihood for housing developments.

I think what happens with a lot of ranch land is that the rancher dies, and the heirs don't want to be ranchers so they sell off the land.

...and then cities buy it for the water rights, pipe the water off somewhere else, and leave it all as abandoned to return to prairie.

Default The cheapest apartments for rent in Briargate, Colorado Springs

https://hoodline.com/2019/11/the-che...ngs-1574902115

"November 27, 2019
Briargate requires a car for most errands, isn't particularly bikeable and offers limited transit options, according to Walk Score's rating system.

So what does the low-end pricing on a rental in Briargate look like these days — and what might you get for your money?

We took a look at local listings in Briargate via rental sites Zumper and Apartment Guide to find out what price-conscious apartment seekers can expect to find in this Colorado Springs neighborhood.

Take a look at the cheapest listings available right now, below. (Note: Prices and availability are subject to change.)"

I've posted before that there is a degree of walkability in Briargate within the area bounded by Research Pkwy, Lexington Dr, Union Blvd, and Charity/Summerhill Drives. Within that area are a full supermarket (with coffee, bank and pharmacy), a Walgreen's drug store, a WF bank, DMV, medical, dry cleaner, postal store, nail parlor, and eateries for pizza, subs, taco bell, Chinese, Thai, Greek, Sushi, gas station with convenience store and of course a liquor store. I've patronized most of these businesses in what's called the Union Town Center.

There's a large church on the opposite corner and nearby are Academy International Elementary and Mountain Ridge Middle schools.

My experience with Briargate so far is going to the Back East Bar and Grill on Sunday mornings (courtesy of MST! ), where the Colorado Springs Bills Backers meet, to watch Buffalo Bills football games. It's a cool place and Griff and Christine are great bartenders and wonderful people! I met a few people there who lived in Briargate and they all seemed to like it and if you're a Bills fan, it's the neighborhood where the bar is that plays Bills games!

My mother was telling me this morning about the adult son of a friend of hers who discovered that UCCS let's non-students rent in their student housing when it is not full - he is living in their student housing now for $600/month.

Default Budget apartments for rent in Old Colorado City, Colorado Springs

"According to rental site Zumper, median rents for a one bedroom in Old Colorado City are hovering around $750, compared to a $840 one-bedroom median for Colorado Springs as a whole.

But how does the low-end pricing on an Old Colorado City rental look these days — and what might you get for the price?

We took a look at local listings from Zumper and Apartment Guide to find out what price-conscious apartment seekers can expect to find in the neighborhood, which, according to Walk Score ratings, isn't very walkable, has minimal bike infrastructure and doesn't offer many public transit options.

Read on for the cheapest listings available right now. (Note: Prices and availability are subject to change.)"
