Small is the New Big: Pikes Peak Urban Living

The Catalyst of Change in the Real Estate Market

The over-used word of the decade is synergy. People drop the word with such frequency, it dilutes the power of it’s physics-defying implications. Wiktionary says it means this: Synergy, in general, may be defined as two or more agents working together to produce a result not obtainable by any of the agents independently.

Flush it out: one can be one, but it will never get to two, let alone three by simply being one. Unless another agent comes and acts upon, through and with the first agent, nothing happens. No one (or thing) goes anywhere.

People know they like synergy. They know they want synergy. But how often do you actually see synergy?

How about a band of REALTORS realizing efficiencies, holding one another accountable to growing their business and their lives, and posting things like this on their website: Core IdeologyOur brand is fresh, healthy, progressive, innovative and forward-thinking. Succinctly stated, our core ideology focuses on education about real estate over the “profit-driven” tactics of sales. Our clients’ interests become our interests. We are meticulous about hearing the true heart of our clientele, and we thrive on providing better solutions so our clients might experience the fullness of Colorado living. Well said, Gordon & Cherise.

Multiply that times two.

Now multiply that by two, again.

Can you hear it? It’s the sound of small making a big noise…

Just Listed: 2025 Montura View 80919

The best reason to buy a condo is to affordably obtain a premier location at a budget price.

The Saddleback Ridge Condominiums do just that. 

Kitchen at 2025 Montura View

Set on the desirable northwest side of Colorado Springs at Chuckwagon and Centennial, these 2004 to 2008 built condos feature 1111 square foot floorplans three blocks from Ute Valley Park. The neighboring townhomes are in the upper $200K’s to mid $300K’s and on the rim above, Mountain Shadows homes gor from $350,000 to $800,000.

How do you best take advantage of the double-market?

The double-market, for those not familiar with such a term is defined as a market where the opportunity to sell at the median to average price point is above average, and the opportunity to buy a move-up valued home is enhanced by strong selection, depressed prices and low interest rates.

Frequently buyers right now are looking at new construction properties in the over $500,000 price range. This is understandable: in less than six months, buyers can get “exactly what they want”. But if what they want is a home with:

Over an acre

On the west-side

Total Privacy

On a cul-de-sac

Views, Views, Views… with native mule deer part of the foreground

Walking distance to an IB Elementary School and miles of local hiking and mountain biking trails

Well, that doesn’t fit the bill of new construction. That’s Peregrine and 80919, one of the most enchanting and unique neighborhoods in Colorado Springs. Such a home just listed at 2255 Cape Pine Way
