Colorado Springs Realtor - Cherise Selley - Number One Place To Live

Have you read the article from the Gazette, in which Outside Magazine just ranked Colorado Springs as the number one city for people to live?

When selling Colorado Springs Real Estate, some numbers boast brilliance and outdoor savvy when compared to other regions in the United States.

With a metropolitan population of 600,000 (+), Colorado Springs supports a lifestyle for those who have an average income as it directly pertains to the cost of living for Rocky Mountain adventure.

As a Colorado Springs Realtor, I'm proud to say that Colorado Springs has great schools, fine universities, excellent weather with more sunny days than any other place in the United States, as well as fantabulous outdoor and recreational activities.

Known for its stable economy, bookended between several ministries and military bases, Colorado Springs Real Estate finds itself on the mend with an influx of tech-based resurgence.

Concerned about its reputation of being ultra-conservative, the city seems to be diversifying from its development of Colorado College's Performing-Arts Center, as well as the merging of different points of view found on the hiking and biking trails.  In fact, nearly 260 miles of multisport trails are available within a ten-mile radius.
