It's almost that time of year again!  I am already getting excited about the 2008 Parade of Homes in Colorado Springs. It is always fun to see how the latest new homes in Colorado Springs are designed. The unique architecture, landscaping, design touches, and communities showcased in the Parade tend to offer a good taste of what new home construction in Colorado Springs is all about for 2008.
Flying Horse and Banning Lewis Ranch are the two main sites to visit this year for the Parade of Homes.  There are a total of 29 new homes in the Parade with 11 of the homes over 1 million dollars. The Colorado Springs Parade of Homes runs from August 8 - 24 where tickets will run $10 each. The Parade of Homes will be open daily from 10AM – 6PM everyday. More details will be available in July!

Selling Your Colorado Springs home can be difficult but not impossible.  Things are looking up for selling a home in Colorado Springs based on the latest data.  The average supply of homes has dropped from 9.44 months to 8.82 months.  Definitely a positive trend after all of the negative real estate press.  Take a look at the charts below and compare the last 6 months (chart one) to the last 30 days (chart 2). 

Selling A Colorado Springs Home

Where does your home stand in the numbers?  It is important to get a CMA (Comparitive Market Analysis) to find your Colorado Springs Home Value.  Pricing your Colorado Springs home properly will allow you to sell it much quicker than what the average supply is showing.  You can get a complimentary CMA sent to your email at  This is the best place to get started when trying to make a decision to sell a home. 

Buying A Colorado Springs Home

If you are looking to buy a Colorado Springs home or build a new Colorado Springs home, take a look at the saturated markets.  Some homes are moving quicker than others!  What price range are you looking at and what is the months supply?  This will directly effect the amount you pay compared to the seller's asking price.  It is important to have an experienced Colorado Springs Realtor who understands all of the different variables going into purchasing Colorado Springs real estate.
