The answers below are all correct in regards to the location of the property. This would cause me to assume that you are not from the Colorado Springs area and if you are considering moving here it can be difficult to get a picture of the area. Colorado Springs is varied as any good size city is. The western side of Colorado Springs is near the foothills of the mountains and more heavily treed than the eastside. This left it open to more risk with fire as the fire was started in a treed area and came down the mountainside. However, it needs to be mentioned that this has never happened in Colorado Springs before so highly unusual but still may not be worth the risk for you.
If you are interested in getting a relocation package let me know. I have some information that goes through what different neighborhoods have to offer, school districts, and will let you know what typical age, size and price of homes are in different areas.
