Real Estate Market

Welcome to City of CS Real Estate and Lifestyle. Many times, people will comment on how expensive it is to live in Colorado Springs, how expensive the area real estate is. Have you ever wondered how Colorado Springs real estate rates compared to other cities in Colorado, or even in the nation? Or maybe you’ve wondered what the average price of a home sold for in your area last year?


Lots of people sold their homes for over and what they’re asking, even the appraisals were coming in agreeing with those numbers. But home transactions have slowed down a little and appraisals are coming in a little lower than what they were last year. It doesn’t mean it’s going to stay that way.
