Colorado Mountain Ranches







Do you know what to look for when buying a Colorado mountain ranch, or any
Colorado mountain property for that matter? Mention this article and Turner Associates will provide a rebate to you upon closing should you become our client! Amount of rebate is dependent upon purchase price and exceeds the amount by the USAA mover’s advantage program. With very few building codes in Colorado Mountain areas, are you sure you are working with a knowledgeable builder, developer, and realtor? If your realtor can not answer your questions then maybe you have the wrong one. Use a knowledgeable Colorado Mountain buyer's agent and be sure your interest is being represented. Turner Associates based out of Colorado Springs prides itself in being experts in Colorado mountain properties in any Colorado county. Below you will find a crash course in things you need to know if you are shopping for anything from a Colorado mountain ranch, to a quiet cabin on a small plot of land:

 

Important Factors Before Buying Mountain Property

The ease of construction and the ability of a piece of Colorado land
to adequately support a building are basic concerns of the home buyer and
responsible builder. Site stability depends upon the land's slope, soil characteristics,
and water drainage. It also depends upon human-made alterations to the land
required to make it a more suitable building site. Certain types of soil are
unsuitable for home construction. Some clay soils will expand as they absorb
water and contract as they dry. The swelling and shrinking of the soil exerts
great stress upon the foundation of the house. The house's foundation may crack
severely unless it is specifically designed to tolerate such stress. Each
country has a soil survey map which can be found by contacting your Soil and
Water Conservation District county office.

 

Sewage Disposal

A large portion of the homes in the western Colorado Mountains
depend on individual sewage treatment disposal systems. However, a large
percentage of the land, 90% in some counties, have severe limitations for
conventional septic systems. Every prospective property owner should realize
that an adequate septic system approved by the Environmental Health Section of
the county health department is required before a new home is allowed to be
occupied or connected to a source of electricity. It is important to evaluate
the site for septic suitability before the purchase of the property.



Drinking Water

Is there sufficient quantity and high quality drinking water
for your home? Colorado residential drinking water supplies in the mountains
may generally be divided into four categories municipal supplies, small water
supplies, private individual or privately owned and shared. Municipal are
classified as community public water systems, and are regulated by the state
and serve cities, towns and some rural areas. Private individual water supplies
using wells and springs serving individual residences and are not regulated by
the state. Privately owned and shared water supplies using wells or springs which
serve more than one home but are not large enough to be classified as community
public water supplies and are not regulated by the state.



Storm Water Management

Storm water runoff is the rain or snow melt that runs off streets, rooftops, parking lots, lawns, and other land surfaces. As communities develop, more impervious surfaces are created and less rainfall can soak into the ground. This increases flooding and stream bank erosion. For some Colorado communities, there is federal, state, and local law regulating the quantity, quality and temperature of storm water.



Access

A poorly designed or constructed road can be a major headache for a homeowner to get in and out of his/her Colorado mountain property. It can limit access for a house or cabin, especially when the weather is snowy, icy, or wet and can also cause severe erosion and stream sedimentation that can lower the value of your property and destroy the beauty of your mountain land. Also find out who is legally responsible for maintaining the road to the property or house: the state, the developer, or property owner. If the road to the property is private, make sure that you have legal access in and out to a state maintained road. Mountain ranches are notorious for this.



Flood Plains

The mountains of Colorado receive a large amount of rain (and obviously snow).
Small creeks are as susceptible to flooding as large rivers, before buying or building a house,
check to see how close the site is to any creek or river. Ask residents of the
area how high flood waters have risen on the property in the past. Communities
that belong to the national Flood insurance Program have maps that show the
flood prone areas within their community. These maps can be found in the county
courthouse or city hall.

 

Stewardship of the Land

The natural beauty of our mountains is in large part what attracts so many to the Colorado area. The Rocky Mountains support a wide variety of plants and animals, many unique to the Colorado Mountains.By gaining an understanding of the complexities of your Colorado Mountain land's terrain and its natural resources, you can help promote the existing character of this area by preserving the natural character of your own home site. Prior to any land clearing activities, identify and protect features such as springs, streams, bogs, rock outcroppings, as well as existing vegetation, such as large trees and rare wildflower areas. Work with your contractor to develop a site plan that enhances rather than eliminates these unique features.

 

Solar Energy

The solar Energy potential of a home site becomes increasingly important as energy cost continue to rise. Land on the south facing slope of a mou

Colorado Horse Property, A Buyer's Guide

14575 Raton Rd. The View From 14575 Raton Rd.

Buying Colorado horse property in is not difficult but it does take some care.  As a horse owner and Realtor in El Paso County I can attest to the following suggestions that go for anyone looking to buy Colorado Horse Property in any county including El Paso. Mention this article and Turner Associates will provide a rebate to you upon closing should you become our client! Amount of rebate is dependent upon purchase price and exceeds the amount by the USAA mover’s advantage program. As you read this, please keep in mind the importance of hiring a realtor that know horses and horse properties, whether that ends up being Turner Associates or not. Note: We consider ourselves Horse Property Realtors.


The ideal Colorado horse property needs to be for first. We will make the assumption that you are new to the area or new to horse ownership so here are a few things that you should try to keep in mind when looking for horse property in El Paso County or any other county for that matter. We are horse real estate experts in El Paso County and that is why we are using that as an example. Whether you are just looking for a plot of Colorado Springs land OR a home on acreage complete with a barn, keep us in mind.


Environmental Safety


Nothing can get into trouble faster than a horse. So, try to remember that when you are looking for horse property. Think sharp branches sticking out from trees, old abandoned wells, T-post barbed wire fencing and so on. Barns may look great to the untrained eye but they almost always harbor things that can get a horse hurt and a visit from the vet. A weak fence line will draw a nosy pony like flies to honey. They WILL try to step over or around or go through it and just like that you have a horse tangled in wire. So, check your “ground” before you fall in love with the view.


Feed


In El Paso county hay will not be found on the ground unless you have a very large piece of property that has good water.  Don’t plan on feeding your horse on the back yard. 2 horses will completely strip a 5 acre lot of any grass in one year and then you will spend the next 20 years trying to get your grass re-established while fighting weeds, you can also experience sand colic. Just budget to buy hay, both timothy and alfalfa are readily available. Both have protein up to 12% if you look for it. The best time to buy is in late August or early September. First cut is in July and is usually a little “stemmy”. 2nd and 3rd cuts are usually pretty good if you buy from a reputable dealer. Our horses have always loved  alfalfa…think about a 2 year old after eating a box of candy. Your horse will get pretty hot on it. I think Timothy is better because it isn’t as hot and it takes the horse longer to run it through his digestive tract. That makes it especially nice feed in winter as It keeps them warmer.


Water


The only thing your horse needs more than feed and a safe environment is water.  Have fresh water available every day. EVERY day. Unless your horse is a mustang fresh of the high desert of Nevada don’t count on him to know how to eat snow and break the ice on a barrel. You are at the barn feeding anyway, so do it for him. In Colorado and specifically El Paso County, the water under your property does not belong to you. You get an El Paso County well permit to pull it from the ground and sometimes those permits do not allow you to water a horse…or even a lawn. These permits are especially tricky when buying existing homes. So again, make sure you get a Realtor that knows their stuff and understands the intricacies of Colorado horse properties in El Paso County.


Farriers


I am going to get letters on this one: In Colorado Springs you do not need to shoe your horse, the ground here is soft and generally not rocky. Obviously, you will need to trim their feet but unless you are doing a lot of performance/ trail work or there is a “pedal problem” with your pony you can usually get by with trimming.


Vets


Get one. There are several around here who have lots of experience. They make their living keeping horses just like yours healthy and happy.  Listen to them, It will save you money. Get the shots..all of them, and don’t forget to worm.


They live where they live, you live where you live


When your Realtor (hopefully Turner Associates) decides to show you some Colorado horse properties,  give a thought to how many horses you want and whether or not you want to board for money.  Most home owner associations have a restriction on the number of horses per home and further restrict commercial activities.  Again, get an El Paso County Realtor that knows horses as well as property.  If you are going to build then think about the environment. If it slopes don’t put your home below your corral…you get the picture. Fence them out of the driveway. Horses cannot eat everything and they definitely should not eat the local oak brush. They will eat if it they can get to it and in large quantities it is poisonous. If you have a garden they will go into it and eat every living thing and trample the ones they don’t eat.


Fences


Good strong fences are safe and do the job. Split rail is expensive but it does not rot and most of the time and it will stay up when your horse pushes on it.

This area is one of the few neighborhoods in Northern Colorado Springs and El Paso County (80921) that allows its residents to live on a golf course, with mountain views for under $400,000. In Gleneagle you will see condos from the 150’s all the way up to 5,000 square foot single family residences at $500,000.

So who lives in Gleneagle? It is home to empty nesters, small and large families; and besides the beautiful and mature golf course, there’s plenty to do outdoors. The close proximity of hiking/biking trails and Fox Run Park make this area formidable for folks who love the outdoors.

As mentioned earlier, prices for these Colorado Springs homes range from the high $200s to over $500,000. Are you looking for a little more space with the same great location of Gleneagle? Try the “Sun Hills” subdivision just east of there. It is comprised of 5 acre plots with fantastic views of the mountains and the Golf Course. In addition, the neighborhoods of Fox Run and Pleasantview Estates directly to the Northeast provide wonderful higher end homes amongst the thick pine trees.

Recent development on Gleneagle’s northern border has added lots of shopping, churches, banks and city-center-like amenities that now keep Gleneagle residents closer to home. Some of the merchants include King Soopers, Shell, McDonalds and Wallgreens – all within one mile of these 80921 neighborhoods.

Finally and perhaps most importantly, Academy District 20 schools serves Gleneagle homes. It includes: Antelope Trails Elementary, Discovery Canyon (K-11 for 2008-2010), Challenger Middle School, Pine Creek High School, Rampart High School and Discovery Canyon. Keep in mind that Academy School District 20 allows you to choose any of their schools. Many families choose to enroll their children in one of the more than 50 private, Catholic, Christian, or non-denominational schools in the greater Colorado Springs area.

Choosing The Right Colorado Springs Subdivision

Tuesday, September 6, 2011
Example home in Gleneagle


As a potential homebuyer in the Colorado Springs area, it is important to not only choose the right house for you and your family, but also the right Colorado Springs subdivision. Mention this article and Turner Associates will provide a rebate to you upon closing should you become our client! Amount of rebate is dependent upon purchase price and exceeds the amount by the USAA mover’s advantage program.
Here are 4 tried and true characteristics that will help ensure you choose the right subdivision in the Pikes Peak region.

Buying a home that declines sharply in property value can put you underwater on your mortgage, erode your net worth and leave you unable to relocate out of Colorado Springs for a new job or adapt to a change in household income. One of the biggest factors that determines whether a home will rise or fall in value is its subdivision. That’s actually a good thing, because you don’t need a crystal ball to evaluate a subdivision’s direction in the 719 area code. The places that tend to hold on to their value are places that do well across two primary factors that anyone can evaluate Colorado Springs subdivisions by.
These two criteria are access to jobs and access to amenities. Those and a few others can help you get a sense of where a Colorado Springs or Monument subdivision is headed.

Access to jobs -

The single most important determinate of real estate prices in the Front Range area is employment opportunity nearby. Without that, a subdivision is at risk of taking a free fall in real estate values. Think about neighborhoods that are surrounded by employment opportunities, whether it’s the Air Force Academy, Federal Express Corporate, Compassion International or Lockheed Martin – there are several neighborhoods close by including Cathedral Pines, Flying Horse, High Forest Ranch, Stone Crossing, Pine Creek, Gleneagle, Black Forest Reserve and Kings Deer.

How convenient is this to a lot of high-paying jobs? That is the most important thing for value. Over the long term, the places that are less at risk, even if they’re not the nicest, fanciest subdivisions, are going to be the places that are convenient to get to high-paying jobs, period. There are a few telltale
signs of areas with long-term opportunities for jobs -

• Low unemployment.

• High household income.

• Seats of federal or state government, particularly military

• Creative industries (music, television, design, publishing or advertising).

• Research facilities.

• Large or prominent colleges and universities.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics has a wealth of information that can help you assess an area’s employment picture. One key bureau feature is the Local Area Unemployment Statistics map, which can give unemployment information by metro area and county. Another data set called Current Employment Statistics can tell you how many people are employed in different sectors of the economy in a given Colorado Springs, Monument or Palmer Lake subdivision.

A wealth of desirable amenities –

Having desirable amenities within the neighborhood is a second major factor in whether a neighborhood will appreciate or decline in property value. In the world of real estate, “amenity” describes any asset within a community that people find desirable.

• Low crime rates

• Good public schools

• Parks

• Pikes Peak views. • Distinctive architecture

• A variety of retail stores

• An educated population

Still, popular amenities by themselves aren’t a guarantee property values will remain high, especially if the subdivision is located in an area with a small or sluggish local economy. Any bump in the national or regional economy, and people can’t find another job if they’re at a high wage level. When a high proportion of the value of real estate is based on amenities and not access to job opportunities, it is more vulnerable to collapse. Fortunately a very large part of the Colorado Springs housing economy is based on the military, IE the Air Force Academy, Fort Carson and Peterson Air Force Base. Try to keep an eye out for subdivision close to these permanent institutions.

Which Colorado Springs subdivisions pass the “drive through” test?

Doing a drive-through of a prospective Springs’ subdivision is a good way to get a gut feeling for where a neighborhood is now and where it’s headed (IE how many vacant lots are built on) Look at the neighbor’s lawns; look at the neighbors’ houses. Do they take care of them? Is there pride in the neighborhood? The Flying Horse area and Stone Crossing have excellent HOA landscaping requirements that protect property values. Every Front Range neighborhood probably has a couple of unkempt houses, but a pattern of neglect can mean a neighborhood’s property values may be headed on a downward slide.

Features that stand out from surrounding areas

Subdivisions in Northern Colorado Springs, Monument, Black Forest and Palmer Lake that protect homeowners’ values the most are those that combine good job opportunities and amenities in ways that are unusual for the area. For instance, if you live in or around a metro area with poor schools overall, buying in a neighborhood that has good schools can keep your property values high even as the surrounding area falls. Academy School District 20 and Lewis Palmer School District 38 are notoriously quality school districts and as a
result, neighborhoods like Briargate, Gleneagle, Fox Run and Kings Deer have held their property values fairly steady throughout the 80921 subdivisions.

Should I hire a Colorado Springs Buyer’s Agent?

Thursday, September 1, 2011



Should I hire a Colorado Springs Buyer’s Agent?


The purchase of a home is one of the most complex, high-risk, and expensive transactions most people will ever go through, yet approximately half of El Paso County home buyers go to the closing table without an advocate by their side. This startling research performed in separate studies by the National Association of REALTORS® and the National Association of Exclusive Buyer's Agents, shows that many buyers do not understand the importance of having an advocate. Without someone representing their interests, how will these buyers ever know if they found the right home at the right price? The Colorado Springs housing market is huge and so is the price spectrum. Mention this article and Turner Associates will provide a rebate to you upon closing should you become our client! Amount of rebate is dependent upon purchase price and exceeds the amount by the USAA mover’s advantage program.

If you are an unrepresented buyer in Colorado Springs, here are six reasons why you should hire a BUYER'S AGENT:

1. BUYER'S AGENTS lower your risk. When you have a COLORADO SPRINGS BUYER'S
AGENT as an advocate, you share some of the risk of home buying with your agent. Otherwise, its buyer beware. Incredibly, many areas including Colorado Springs and Monument do not have laws or regulatory bodies in place that protect homebuyers in many situations. If you have a BUYER'S AGENT as your advocate, we will make recommendations that will assure that you are buying a home that is safe, environmentally sound and priced fairly according to the current Colorado Springs housing marketplace.

2. BUYER'S AGENTS have information you don't have. PPMLS data entry can take from one to 10 days, depending on the listing agent, his or her broker, and the rules and technology of the PPMLS. By the time the home is posted on the Internet, it could already be sold, so when you shop for homes on the Internet, you may not be seeing the most current Colorado Springs housing inventory. That's why Turner Associates Realtors network with each other. We will tell other agents about you and your wish list in exchange for information about upcoming homes for sale which are not yet in the MLS or the Internet. Many Pikes Peak area homes are bought and sold this way without a sign ever going into the yard. If you want to be the buyer positioned to make first and best offers on these desirable homes, hire Turner Associates.

3. BUYER'S AGENTS Are real estate specialists. Not all real estate professionals are created equally. There are approximately 2.3 million licensed real estate professionals, but only members of the National Association of REALTORS can call themselves REALTORS. This association of about 750,000 brokers and agents provides a Code of Ethics to standardize professional behavior. Make sure your agent is a member of the local chapter, the Pikes Peak Association of Realtors (PPAR).

4.BUYER'S AGENTS understand the current Colorado Springs market. We have invaluable house-by-house, street-by-street, and market-by-market experience which CANNOT be learned overnight. BUYER'S AGENTS who have weathered the pendulum swing between buyers’ and sellers' markets know that the real estate market can turn abruptly. Rising and falling interest rates affect the number of available homes for sale and their prices within weeks or days. All it takes is the entrance or exit of a major employer (Federal Express, Lockheed Martin etc.) and hundreds of homes in a neighborhood can be affected. Or perhaps you are military and just got transferred away from, or to, the Colorado Springs area. We can help you with home buying strategies and proposals that will get the right house at the best price and terms for the Springs area.

5. BUYER'S AGENTS understand the complexity of the
transaction. Less than 15 years ago, a home could be bought with a two-page contract. Now consumer-mandated seller's disclosures, environmental and structural reports, and other legal documents have turned the home transfer into a potential minefield. As BUYER'S AGENTs, we work with Colorado contracts daily, and can fully understand which points are harmful and/or beneficial to you. From helping you make a reasonable offer in one of the several Colorado Springs neighborhoods, to providing for the discovery and disclosure of material facts, we can also correctly interpret information for you.

6. BUYER'S AGENTS don’t cost a dime! Many potential homebuyers in Colorado Springs are unaware that the seller pays the fees for a buyer’s agent. Some people will argue that if you enter a contract without a buyer’s agent then you can get the seller (or builder) to lower his price by a commensurate amount. The problem is the homebuyer has no idea if that is a good deal or not. What good is saving a 3% commission for the seller if you made an offer 10% over current Colorado Springs market price? Whose word are you going to take, the seller, the seller’s agent or an agent that is on YOUR team?
