Welcome to Living Colorado Springs!
Happy 4th of July! While May was the wettest on record for Colorado Springs, June was a more normal month, with the typical morning sunshine and afternoon thunderstorms we are known for. Pikes Peak still has a bit of snow on it, and things looking nice and green down here. With 30 year fixed interest rates in the upper 3’s to low 4’s, it makes this one of the most affordable times in history to own part of one of the most beautiful cities in the United States!
