Waldo Canyon Fire of 2012 and Mountain Shadows 2013 Recovery

Waldo Canyon Fire of 2012 and Mountain Shadows 2013 Recovery

I recently sold a brand new Mountain Shadows home to clients moving to Colorado Springs from Texas. I have to admit, I was concerned about them living in an area that still shows severe burn scars from the Waldo Canyon fire of 2012, but they were happy to find a beautiful home in a well established neighborhood – with a view to boot.

They selected a newly constructed home that was about 80% complete. Through the two-month process to complete, I had the pleasure of driving through Mountain Shadows and watching the rebuilding of the community. I was surprised at two things, the fact that a neighborhood could be decimated of all but two or three homes and how fast the recovery is going in the area.

Many homeowners chose not to rebuild in the area and sold their lots to local builders, this is what my clients purchased. We are very thankful to have so many quality homebuilders in the area to step up and help the community recover.
