Aspen View Homes 3D Virtual Tours

Recently we did a post highlighting Aspen View Homes and our favorite qualities about them as a builder. We recently had the pleasure of working with them again to shoot 3D Virtual Open House Tours for three of their model homes- and they were beautiful! We had so much fun shooting these and we can’t wait to show them off. Thanks to the amazing design team at Senger Design Group– they clearly have a very talented staff. So, without further adieu…ta da!

Downtown Sunday Market

There’s something really great about this time of year. The perfect weather, the plethora of local food being harvested, and the upcoming holidays make this one of the most desirable times of year, and the Springs shows off in impressive fashion. The Downtown Sunday Market at Acacia Park is one of the many ways that you can get the most out of the Springs around this time of year. It’s one of those rare finds in an outdoor market where you find truly high-quality craftsmen, produce bursting with color and flavor, and unique food and drink options made fresh locally or right there on-the-spot. Check out some of our most recent Market finds and then make sure to go see it for yourself!  Read more…

Colorado Springs on Forbes “Top 25” List!

Forbes top 25

Colorado Springs recently gained a mention in Forbes’ March article, The Best Places To Retire In 2015, and for good reason. With both gorgeous summers and stunningly beautiful winters, plus about a million ways to maintain a fit and active lifestyle, and spectacular mountain views from virtually everywhere in the city (seriously- my drive home from the grocery store is ridiculously picturesque), you’d be hard pressed to find reasons not to retire in the Springs.

Buyer’s Tool Highlight: Doorsteps

One of the things that we pride ourselves on here at The Red House Team is making a broad spectrum of valuable tools available to those considering buying a home. Certain tools lend themselves to helping everyone from those just starting to consider buying, to those about to purchase their third (or more) home. Enter, Doorsteps. This online tool and mobile app allows potential buyers, or those that think they may be interested in buying, to evaluate their readiness and potential purchasing power without the immediate need of a real estate agent or lender (though it can help you find both via our built-in suggestions).

Series Post #2: What’s Nearby?

Each series post we profile, “Why Colorado Springs?”. The series highlights the many awesome aspects of this city and the surrounding areas it gives you easy access to. None of the people, locations, or businesses have sponsored these mentions unless indicated in the article.

This week I get to do a brief overview of some of the awesome places within driving distance of Colorado Springs. In later posts we’ll go into deeper detail of some of the locales mentioned. If you’re a thrill seeker looking for the highest peak or a nature enthusiast seeking out a quiet refuge from the bustle of the city, you’ll be well accommodated either way. Read more…

We all know the standard sites you bookmark and apps you download when you’re house hunting. As Trulia, Zillow, and Realtor.com are the top three downloaded real estate apps (there are 1.4 million apps available in iTunes), I’m guessing that if you’re house hunting, these are already on your radar, or likely, your phone.
