Colorado Springs Named America’s Most Dog Friendly City!

by Alan Daniels

Colorado Springs Dog Friendly

The world's most commonly read dog magazine, Dog Fancy, has named Colorado Springs, Colorado, the 2008 winner of DogTown USA. DogTown USA is a national competition in which Dog Fancy readers nominate America's most dog-friendly city. They look at the number of dog friendly open spaces, dog parks, events for dogs and dog owners, vet to dog ratios, abundant pet supply and other services, and municipal laws that support and protect all pets.

"Some cities clearly roll out the red carpet for dogs and their owners," says Susan Chaney, editor of Dog Fancy. "Each year, it's gratifying to read about so many organizations and individuals who work toward making their cities welcoming to dogs. We're very pleased to honor Colorado Springs this year, and congratulate it for avoiding legislation like that adopted by Denver which bans pit-bull-type dogs."

Other Top Ranked Cities:
-Huntington Beach, CA

-Coeur d'Alene, ID
-Briarcliff Manor, NY
-Long Beach, CA

 

Beazer Homes is pulling out of Colorado!

by Alan Daniels
That's right, Beazer Homes is pulling out of Colorado! They were the eighth largest new home builder in the nation when they moved into the Colorado market in 2001. They have fallen on some tough times with a full investigation on mortgage fraud and over extending into different areas. Their stocks have dropped by 80 percent to less than $7.00 a share. Beazer Homes has said that they will pay all of their bills and honor all warranty obligations in the area. Keep in mind that there is no guarantee if they are not around in the future though. This is yet another reason on why an experienced Realtor can help advise you on New Home builders in Colorado Springs. A seasoned real estate agent has experience with all of the builders in town and usually gets a jump on issues like this. You can still find their Colorado Springs new homes in Claremont Ranch, Lowell, Soaring Eagles, Sweetwater Ridge, The Gables, and Wolf Ranch. There could be some good deals to come in order for them to move out quickly. Get with a Realtor to see if this would be the right move to meet your needs.

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
