Southwest / WestOriginally anchored by the iconic Broadmoor Hotel and reinforced by the War Department’s decision to construct Fort Carson nearby, Southwest has been a sought-after area to live in since the late 1800s. Its beauty, proximity to the mountains, diverse housing options, fantastic schools and the abundance of amenities are all factors that make this an area to check out. Families and wealthy retirees are attracted to Southwest. Climbing in altitude equates to climbing home prices in this affluent neighborhood. Dual-income families are common and mostly in professional occupations. Southwest is a less densely populated area of Colorado Springs and is characterized by a slower pace. A majority of the homes were built between 1940-1980, so you will find a mix of mid-century ranches and ‘70s-style split- level homes. Most houses are very well maintained and/or thoughtfully renovated, though if you are looking for a character-filled “fixer upper,” you can find those too.
