Hi Luke :o)

I am a local Colorado Springs Residential Investment Specialist and I also just happen to live in the area you are talking about. This area is diverse, but generally 1960's thru early 1980's vintage homes of popular Tri-level, Bi-level an Ranch styles. There is some newer infill in some areas and it is a popular place to live because of its reasonable price points and close proximity to the Powers Corridor/First and Main shopping area.

I am a recognized expert in HUD and VA Owned Properties as well as Bank Owned/REO's. You can find out more and search ALL available listed properties on my website at the following links:

I can design you a personalized property search website that will send you all the available listed properties for sale that meet your specific criteria and it also allows you to research and organize them at your liesure from your own computer.

Please let me know if I may be of assistance

Best Regards

How about a property in Bailey, CO? We love this house in Bailey, but we are still working on getting our credit rating up. Our lender suggested finding someone to buy the house and we pay rent for a year or two until we can get a mortgage loan.

Not trying to be coy, I assume you don't want to jump in the car with someone you don't know. I assume you don't want to work with someone who wants to get you on the dotted line as quickly as possible. I think your question is well taken but maybe should be directed toward finding an agent rather than a neighborhood or house. Regardless of what you learn here, you will likley find a home in a different location, a different price, and so on. This is the reality of buying on the internet. In other words, if you find an agent you can feel comfortable with, speaks your language, feels like someone you would trust to help you find a home, the other questions will then take care of themselves. If you like the truth, that's it. I'll be happy to apply for the job. Good luck to you. By the way I have Salt Lake references here in Colorado Springs.

There is nothing wrong with the area as long as you stay off of the 4 lane roads there which can get pretty congested. Actually it is an awesome time for landlords and rental homes in Colorado Springs. We are a Full service Real Estate company that Buys, Sells and Manages homes for others with a focus on caring for them in such a way that people can not tell from the exterior or interior that they are a rental property and manage 50+ properties here in the Springs to be assets to their neighborhoods.

That being stated, Single family homes are renting quickly and for top dollar. Part of the reason that I attribute that to is that when homes are repossessed, those owners have to move somewhere and all their "stuff" will simply not fit into an apartment. While it is true that their credit is typically shot,.. many of them are making enough money at this point to make their payments.

I would not be stuck however to this one specific area as there are many neighborhoods that lend themselves well to the rental market and are priced in such a way to exploit the future appreciation that I believe we will be seeing.

Let mne know if I can help,.. I would love to provide you with a list of properties that could be possible answers to your dreams.

Hello Luke;

There are many great areas in Colorado Springs that would work well for your investment endeavors. Where you purchase would be best decided by your long and short term investment goals and the amount of money you have to invest. Are you in this investment for the long term or are you wanting to have immediate substantial cash flow. Are you purchasing your investment with cash or do you intend to borrow funds? As you can see there is a lot to consider before deciding where to purchase and the type of property to purchase. Do you want to consider a singe family home, condo, townhouse or multiple income properties such as fourplexes?

I am available to provide an FREE investment consultation based upon the aforementioned factors. Please call my team at 719-265-9203 or visit me on the web at http://www.MikeWashington.com.

There are some great locations in Colorado Springs that would be well-suited for rentals. For example, with thousands of military folks coming into Fort Carson, properties in south Colorado Springs, Fountain, Widefield and Security would make great rentals. For the same reason, properties in Cimarron Hills, Constitution Hills, Springs Ranch and Stetson Hills provide quick access to Peterson Air Force Base. Lastly, there are popular school districts that many parents want to live in.

I would love to help you with an investment purchase in Colorado Springs. Please feel free to call me at 719.351.5077 so we can discuss your goals. Or visit my website!
