Located on the Southwest side of Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City is by far one of the most charming areas to live. Formerly known as Colorado City, it was founded in 1859, during the Pikes Peak Gold Rush. El Paso County was developed in 1861, and when Colorado City became a county seat in 1873, the Colorado Courthouse broke ground here. In the 1890's, this town was utilized in the mining industry as a supply hub, and quickly became flooded with workers and residents. Since then, the town has become a hot spot for tourism, with its old time charm, and beautiful 19th-century brick buildings that run down the well known Colorado Avenue.

The Buyer's Guide
Buying a home now instead of renting one may be the game-changer that amplifies long-term savings for renters who are ready to become homeowners. When paying a mortgage as opposed to paying rent, that money is reinvested back in your favor, so you’re contributing to your own net worth when you own a home. This is a term called equity, and it’s one of the biggest financial benefits of homeownership.
If the pandemic and the changes we’ve faced recently have made you seriously think about buying a home instead of renting one, you’re not alone. You may, however, be wondering if the dollars and cents add up in your favor as home prices continue to rise. According to the experts, in many cases, it’s still more affordable to buy a home than to rent one.
