Back to our very special construction project!

So in the past few weeks we got the drywall, taping, texturing and painting finished in our new house out west of here.

To give you some idea what it looks like now, check out the future living room:

IMGP3587It can’t be long before we move in now, can it?

Did I mention I am NOT a patient person? I probably should have mentioned that to our builder BEFORE we started… LOL!

Business is Picking Up In Huerfano County Colorado!

IMGP3555Ever since Mike and I “discovered” this rural section of southern Colorado in 2013, we’ve been wondering why others aren’t moving here. Come to find out, they are! The realtors in the La Veta area and here in Walsenburg are having record months lately. And why not? The beauty of this place in spring is astounding!

I asked Susie here at Acorn Realty about the local market when I saw that we had 12 home sales in the small town of Walsenburg in April, selling for everywhere from $20,000 to $200,000. She’s excited to see so much interest in our area, and attributes her improving sales figures to the baby boomers, who know a great deal when they see one!

DSCF0978At present this county is such a mix of welfare cases and hard-working families, rundown and well-kept homes. But the homes west of Walsenburg have fantastic mountain views, and with land and home prices so reasonable at present, I cannot imagine that it won’t grow quickly.
