Parts of Colorado Springs have appreciated at alarming rates, which is great for sellers. Real estate has been a strong investment for people in our city. Here is a chart showing just how fast our home sales have risen over the last few years.

We decided to study our local MLS to determine which neighborhoods are the most affordable in Colorado Springs today. Rather than making this an opinion piece, we focused on the data. We calculated the lowest price per square foot of each neighborhood in Colorado Springs and then organized the results below. These are the 5 neighborhoods that are the most affordable today.


Number OneCUMBERLAND GREEN

Cumberland Green in Colorado SpringsCumberland Green is a newer neighborhood in the Fountain area, which began development in 2007.

Cumberland Green's location, affordability, and new-development characteristics make it popular among the large military community in this area. It's a growing community that offers excellent value.

Number FiveSUMMERFIELD

$125 per square foot

Summerfield Neighborhood in Briargate Colorado Springs

Summerfield is a charming neighborhood in Briargate that was established in the early 1990s. It’s located right next to John Venezia Park, which is one of the most prestigious parks in Colorado Springs. It’s surprising that this neighborhood made the list, given its location. Briargate is not known as being an "affordable" area.

Many of the homes are large and need to be updated, which is most likely what’s keeping the prices down. Once this neighborhood gets a makeover from new homeowners, prices are bound to rise.
