COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (PRWEB) OCTOBER 13, 2016
Colorado Springs is an enticing community for anyone, and is being discovered by people from all walks of life. It has more than 300 days of sunshine every year, majestic mountain views, an extensive hiking/biking trail system, easy access to skiing, low cost of living, low property taxes, great business development opportunities and a well-educated workforce.
“Colorado Springs features fantastic real estate values compared to nearby Denver, where home prices are 50% to 60% higher,” said Becky Gloriod, of The Becky Gloriod Partners and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. “It is also the ideal place for retired military personnel. Furthermore, Thrillist, in 2015, ranked Colorado Springs as the No. 3 Best Military Town in the United States.”
For veterans considering retiring to Colorado Springs, The Becky Gloriod Partners list the following three benefits:
No. 1: Military community. “Individuals transitioning from military to civilian life may find comfort knowing that they share a common bond with many others in the community who have either served or are currently serving,” said Jack, a Vietnam veteran and retired Army Colonel. “In fact, Colorado Springs is known amongst retired military as a great place to live.”
No. 2: Wealth of resources. “Individuals retiring from the military are still relatively young, and often decide to return to a city such as Colorado Springs that has a wealth of resources available for veterans,” said Becky. “The city is incredibly friendly to people wanting to start a small business, as well as a host to dozens of defense contractors.”
No. 3: Growth. “From 2000 to 2014, Colorado Springs saw a population growth of nearly 20 percent, and over the last year has seen a 20-percent increase in building permits for new houses,” concluded Jack. “Additionally, the Fort Carson Army Base, Peterson Air Force Base, and Schriever Air Force Base bring many new residents to the area.”
