You Don’t Have to be Spooked by Tricky Soil in Colorado Springs

Our team mission is to provide the highest quality service to our clients. Therefore, we strive for our sellers and buyers to be as informed as possible when it comes to purchasing or selling a home. While there may be some geological concerns when it comes to Colorado Springs real estate, buying or selling a home here does not have to be scary. We have put together a list of resources that you may find helpful, particularly when deciding to buy or sell in certain areas of Colorado Springs.

We have included links to geological studies, landslide information, and other natural hazard maps for research purposes. However, this information does not necessarily indicate that there will be a geologic hazard in any particular area. It is simply for informational purposes and to help our clients make the most informed decision possible.

We have also included links in regards to Gold Hill Mesa, which has been at the forefront of some geological concerns. While we are not taking a stance in any direction regarding this community, we thought it might be helpful to shed light on both sides of the controversy. You will find articles from local news sources as well as Gold Hill Mesa’s response to those articles.

Regardless of where you decide to sell or buy, it is always important to do as much research as possible on the area. It is our job to make sure our clients are in “in the know” and feel confident and comfortable with their home choice. 

The natural beauty of Colorado Springs may come with additional soil concerns, but these only affect a small margin of homes and areas. It is our job to help you feel secure, not spooked, in your decision to live in Colorado Springs! Please feel free to contact us regarding questions or concerns about Colorado Springs homes.
