Few cities in the western United States offer up an atmosphere quite like Colorado Springs. Located 61 miles south of the state capital, Denver, and at the base of Pike's Peak, Colorado Springs is nestled at the eastern edge of the Southern Rocky Mountains. According to the 2010 census, the city has a population of 416,613, but a total population of 645,613 people inhabit the entire metropolitan area. With all the amenities of a city, residents are conveniently located within miles of some of America's most breathtakingly rugged landscapes; or 'Purple Mountains Majesty' as coined by Katharine Lee Bates in her poem inspired by Pike's Peak.
Colorado Springs is considered one of the United State's premier military communities. Known as the nation's military space capital, it is home to Fort Carson Army Base, Peterson Air Force Base, Schriever Air Force Base, North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD)/Cheyenne Mountain Air Station and the U.S. Air Force Academy. With such a commanding presence, Colorado Springs certainly benefits from and welcomes the diversity and revenue these military communities bring to the area.
Those relocating to the Colorado Springs area will have no problem engaging in recreational activities. This region, boasting Pike's Peak as its main attraction, has long been a vacation destination that offers a host of parks, like the Garden of the Gods Park, Seven Falls and the Cave of Wonders. With the dry and clean alpine desert air and an average of 300 days of sunshine, residents often enjoy the many rivers and trails available within this region.
Those with a more athletic inclination will find themselves in good company as Colorado Springs is also home to the U.S. Olympic Training Center. Cultural and art enthusiasts can be appeased by the many museums and educational centers as well.
Finding a home within this eclectic area can be rewarding, but maximizing your VA Loan benefits can make it even better. Real estate agents who are familiar with the property qualifications and standards of the VA Loan are ready to help active duty military personnel and retired veterans alike find a home to suit their wants and needs.
Getting pre-approved for a VA Loan is one of the best ways to make the process as seamless as possible. As of August 2011, the median home list price in Colorado Springs was $222,000; very reasonable considering all the benefits the area has available to its residents.
