Colorado Springs: The Nation’s Hottest Housing Market

It’s official: Colorado Springs is an amazing place to live. But don’t take our word for it—for the second year running, USA Today reports that Colorado Springs (this year, East Colorado Springs, zip code 80916) is the hottest housing market in the country. This is cause for celebration, because just up the road stands one of the state’s premier master-planned communities: Meridian Ranch.

Driving forces

There is a surge of buyers who have determined that now is a great time to invest in their futures. Desiring to settle down and partake in the real estate market, these buyers, many first-time buyers, are seizing the opportunity, and they’ve decided Colorado Springs is an ideal place to do it. And for good reason: it’s affordable and offers a high quality of life. Homes here start in the $300s and provide easy access to a plethora of outdoor activities (not to mention spectacular views of inspiring Pikes Peak and more).

A great place to live

From its unbeatable climate and limitless recreation opportunities to its exceptional schools and strong economy, Colorado Springs is a gem. The quality of life residents experience here is second to none. Here are a few reasons why:

Sense of community

Colorado Springs is unique in that it offers all the amenities and conveniences of a large city but maintains a small-town feel. Area communities like Meridian Ranch double down on this sense of community, offering onsite amenities and fostering a welcoming culture of happy homeowners.

Educational opportunities

Educational excellence abounds in the Colorado Springs area. From highly rated districts to outstanding charter school options, children here have access to a world-class education from preschool through college. Meridian Ranch is part of the well-respected Falcon School District 49, where kids receive educations that prepare them for and propel them into successful futures.

Year-round lifestyle

With 300+ days of sunshine, Colorado Springs is a mecca for recreation. Want to golf in November? Do it here. Head to the ski slopes in April? Do it here. Train for a marathon? Do it here—outdoors, all year long.

Fit and fun

Home to the US Olympic Committee Headquarters, Colorado Springs is often referred to as the “Olympic City.” Whether you’re an elite athlete, the outdoorsy type, a pickup basketball player at the rec center, or just like to walk the dog, you’ll find what you’re looking for here. The fitness vibe of the community is driven by residents who desire a lifestyle of health and wellness. In fact, in 2020, a WalletHub study reported that Colorado Springs was among the nation’s top 40 cities for active lifestyles.
