The fluidity of military relocation plays a big role in the housing market. So it is no wonder that home buyers find quite a variety of houses for sale in Colorado Springs. Military families come and go. And many return to Colorado Springs for retirement where Pikes Peak overlooks the beautiful city on the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains.
