I apologize I haven’t posted anything recently, it’s been a busy year so far. I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday season and have started off the New Year well! This post is more specific than some of my previous posts and we will be starting a whole series on owning investment homes or rental homes in specific areas in El Paso and Pueblo Counties. Today’s focus is Pueblo West.
Pueblo West is located approximately 10 miles west of the town of Pueblo, CO. Pueblo West is a separate entity of Pueblo Proper and is governed by a Metro District. I won’t go into too many details about the town specifically but it’s good to have at least a little bit of background for those of you who are not familiar with this area. Pueblo west offers a variety of living from single family homes on agricultural lots typically ranging from 1-5 acres, and residential lots averaging about .25 acres. There are hundreds of miles of equestrian and walking easements and plenty of outdoor opportunities. Desert Hawk Golf Course is a beautiful course to play 18 holes or spend a day at the bar/clubhouse, or whack a few balls at the driving range.
The Southern portion of Pueblo West is located in close proximity to Lake Pueblo which is one of the top 50 bass lakes in the country! The lake also offers tons of recreational opportunities from their 2 full service marinas, water skiing, jet skiing, and more! Pueblo West offers a multitude of restaurants from fast food to steaks. The shopping available includes Wal-Mart, Safeway, multiple gas stations and convenience stores, a general store at the west end and many other establishments.
The Northern portion of Pueblo West borders the south end of Ft. Carson and offers quick access to I25. Many Soldiers have found the prices to be appealing and the location quite convenient to Ft. Carson. There is an industrial portion of Pueblo West located in this area also with lots of shops and small businesses.
Now that the geographical areas are discussed lets look at the benefits of owning a rental home or investment property in Pueblo West, CO. The variations in lot sizes and lot restrictions will appeal to a large amount of people. The ability to purchase or rent homes with fencing and facilities for equine is a major bonus to anybody who enjoys the company of Horses, Mules, or Donkeys. Although Pueblo West has been established since the 1970’s much of the growth began in the 90’s and 2000’s therefore the homes are relatively new and should require less maintenance. Add to that the convenience to Lake Pueblo, the mountains outside of Canon City, and the amenities, and it’s hard to go wrong! Pueblo West has great potential for growth and is only approximately 50% built out.
