Bill McAfee’s version – Colorado Springs Real Estate

Bill McAfee, President of Empire Title, authored an article entitled, “Be afraid, be very afraid!!!” The point he was making is that it’s okay to be afraid of things out of our control, such as world events and various acts of nature.  On the other hand, when it comes to Colorado Springs Real Estate, there are many reasons that we do not have to be afraid. Here are some things for which Mr. McAfee elaborated regarding the positives about our real estate market, “population growth, and decrease in foreclosure numbers, inventory levels, new build inventory and the lack of investor speculation.”
