First Time Homebuyers – Location, Location, Location

Colorado is expanding at an incredible rate with neighborhoods quickly rising into the news as some of the best places to live in the country. If you are a first-time homebuyer, the idea can be daunting as you think about floor plans and number of bathrooms you need, but the truth is location should be your first major decision. Even if the home you buy is your dream home, if it is in the wrong location for your family and needs you won’t be happy later.

St. Aubyn has multiple options to fit the right first home for your family including different floor plans, pricing and most importantly neighborhoods. Colorado Springs, Johnston, Firestone and Berthoud all offer nature, community, and of course gorgeous Colorado sunshine.

Colorado Springs is set apart with Garden of the Gods and the flagship US Olympic Center, with numerous training facilities and resources for the best athletes in the world. The USAFA as well as the Fort Carson Army Base all call the Springs home and have a significant impact on the economy. Military-based discounts and services abound since so many people in the Springs are in the military. Outstanding schools and a flourishing economy all draw residents to live here as well.

One of our Northern neighborhoods, Firestone, has a rich history and was recently named in the “Top 25 Places to Live”,  offering families over 35 parks to enjoy within city limits. This includes the St. Vrain State Park with an extensive trail system for those that love the outdoors.

Berthoud, Johnstown and Firestone, all three of St. Aubyn’s Northern communities, are all on the rise in popularity because of safety, easy access to nature and quality homes at affordable pricing for families and first homebuyers that are seeking a place to put down roots. Local events that bring communities together like farmers markets, outdoor festivals and parades are a true bonus to living in areas such as these as well. Not to mention close proximity to ski resorts and outdoor music and film venues such as Red Rocks. The Front Range of Colorado is also not to be beaten in restaurants, an abundance of local breweries, wildlife, hiking trails and open spaces for families to enjoy.

If you have any questions or would like to come visit a St. Aubyn home in an any of these areas, please contact us today. We would love to show you all that our blossoming communities have to offer you and your family.
