Investing in Colorado Springs, CO

6 Replies

Hello,

I am interested in checking out the Colo Springs area for buy and hold rentals. I used to live in the area and think it might have potential. Can any of you lend some advice or have had personal experience there?

Hey Torey,

Colorado Springs is consistently strong for rentals (both SFR and Multi). Vacancy rates are extremely low, and rents are strong, but you have to be patient to find deals that have strong cash flow. What info are you looking for specifically?

@Aaron Moore & @Bryan Rodriguez, I am interested in typical 3/2, SFRs in good quality neighborhoods, at least 10% under market value. If you deal in turnkey properties, I would be interested in looking at what you have.

@Torey Chumbley to "mention" someone, type the @ symbol and the first three letters of their name. Below the reply box will appear a list of names matching the first three letters. Pick the one you want and it will appear highlighted in blue if you do it right. BTW, it took a while to figure it out.

Welcome and happy investing.
