This weekend I listed a house and found out that although I had multiple keys none seemed to want to work the front door. Several keys worked another door in the house so getting in wasn't a problem.  The problem was, however, how best to present the house.  In this particular property coming through the front door makes a huge difference in the tone that is set.  The next step, was getting a key that would work.     I called the Lock Shop this morning and Wayne answered the phone himself.  With several appointments already scheduled for this house today I asked if it would be possible to meet him at noon. "No problem" he replied.  He had just gotten there when I drove up. He was incredibly responsive, re-keyed the lock and gave me 4 keys so that I could have a couple for spares if need...

Colorado seems to bring with it the desire for mountain livng with the big caveat of being close to, or commutable to, Colorado Springs.  Heading West out of Colorado Springs, the only highway access to the mountains is Highway 24.  Hwy 24 takes you to the quaint mountain town of Woodland Park.  With several "suburbs" in the area, mountain homes can be found for all types of needs.  Well built Colorado homes with privacy, forest and live water are few not only because of the geographic area but also because properties with a creek, stream or pond are rare and highly sought after.  There are 34 current listings of homes for sale on an acre or more in Woodland Park.  Of these 27 acre active with a median price of $399,900 and a high price of $1,999,950.  Two of the 34 properties are sold ...

 Could the Center for Disease Control and Preventions blog post, "Preparedness 101- Zombie Apocalypse" be the best blog post of 2011?      Just before Christmas, I was at a BierWerks, a pub in Woodland Park listening to the Mike Maddux Band.  All of the people in my group loved to run and we talked a lot about running.  Then, one of the ladies in my group, an engineer, started talking about the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) article about preparing for a zombie apocalypse.   She wondered could a zombie apocalypse really occur.    Now, a lot of the Army guys I work with LOVE talking about zombies and how they would fight them.  They get so excited about it that you would think that zombies are real.   Generally, I’ve always just kind of tuned them out.  Zombies aren’t ...

    While many people have often thought about owning their own dream cottage or cabin, there is another reason why you might want to take the time to look at Woodland Park cottages and cabins for sale. These properties are a great stepping stone for owning real estate if you cannot yet afford a home but would love to have your own home-away-from-home for the weekends or for your summer holidays.   Owning a cottage or cabin in Woodland Park gives you the first solid footing in real estate that you would really need to get started with this real estate adventure. In fact, many real estate tycoons first started by purchasing a cottage or Cabin and then moving up from there. This is our retreat in a city called Florissant just outside of Woodland Park                                 It is ...

Aspens   The Aspens   Now that cooler temperatures are filling the air,   The question arises – are the Aspens changing colors yet?    Soon the news reports and the internet will be teaming with advice on where to find the best places to view their glorious fall foliage.    Yet for me, I’m still entranced by their summer time beauty.  Note:  This picture was taken in Woodland Park, CO - where the Pikes Peak National Forest is practically in your backyard.  Woodland Park lies 17 miles to the west of Colorado Springs.

Even though I like my downtown Colorado Springs home, I enjoy spending time out in Woodland Park, Colorado.  The elevation is higher there, so the temperatures run about 10 degrees cooler than Colorado Springs.  Plus, Woodland Park is a very pretty area and the drive to and from Woodland Park is spectacular.  Since Woodland Park is only 18 miles to the west of Colorado Springs, it is a very easy drive.   I frequently stop at a little convenience store/liquor store on HWY 24, the name of which I can't recall, for a cup of coffee.   Maybe if I wasn't in the need of coffee, I might remember the name.    I always enjoy this view from their parking lot.  Colorado:  See It.  Experience It.  Live It.

Have you ever seen a Walmart that was so beautiful that you stopped to take a picture?  Let's face it, most Walmarts and other box stores are not particularly attractive.  Functional...yes.  Attractive.....not really.  The Walmart in Woodland Park is an exception.   Woodland Park is a small, flourishing city located 18 miles to the west of Colorado Springs in Teller County.   This picture was taken at sunrise.  As result, some of the special features are not as noticeable.  This Walmart's features include the statue in the front, split rail fencing, very nice landscaping, decorative light fixtures in the parking lots, green instead of  the trademark blue on the building, etc.   If you are interested in buying or selling a home in or around Woodland Park, Colorado, feel free to call or e...

Colorado Veterans interested in purchasing a home in Woodland Park, CO have the ability to choose between two federally insured programs. The FHA (Federal Housing Administration) and VA mortgage programs are very similar, but each offers its own unique benefits.  The goal of both FHA & VA mortgage programs is to make affordable home loans accessible to American home buyers. What is an FHA Loan? FHA was created in 1934 as a direct result of the Great Depression, one of America’s worst economic downturns. During this time, nearly two million construction workers were laid off. Only four out of ten people owned their own home and for those that did, mortgage loan terms were outrageous. Consider this, if you were fortunate enough to own a home you would have been required to put a minimum ...

A short drive up to Woodland Park is not only beautiful, but a perfect outing for the kiddos. The Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center is located on the main drag of Woodland Park, offering hands-on exhibits, fun facts about dinosaurs, and even the chance to feel dino poop. Colorado has been the home for many dinosaurs millions of years ago, and we continue to find new artifacts of their life here before us. Try your hand at a dino dig at the Learning Center! Did you know there is a dinosaur called the Denversaurus? It’s a large armored dinosaur of the Nodosaur family, this is the most derived of its kind. It was part of the subtropical fauna of the deltas of the Western Interior Seaway during the late Cretaceous period. A very rare dinosaur, this cast is made from the most complete...
