Review of Colorado Springs, Colorado

Going downhill
Star Rating - 5/13/2019
I've lived here for 15 years. You need to update your average price of a home because it has gone up dramatically in the last two years. According to our local paper, the current average price of a home is $303,450. Apartments are unaffordable. The scenery and activities available are great, but it is getting very crowded and the crime has gone way up. I moved here from the south and one of the reasons was the low crime rate. Now it seems like there is a shooting every day, drug busts are rampant, and wrecks are increasing much so that they are putting in red light cameras at multiple locations (and they aren't helping.) The freak weather is so bad that insurance rates have skyrocketed. If I could afford to move, I would.
