Sand Creek is a newer neighborhood just Southwest of Airport Rd. and Powers Blvd., in the Southeast part of Colorado Springs. (Check out the MAP.) The Northwest corner of the neighborhood is home to Sand Creek Elementary School, and Sand Creek (the actual creek…) runs along the south and west borders of this neighborhood, setting it apart from neighboring communities.
The homes in Sand Creek were built from 1997-2000 by Richmond American Homes (national builder) and Keller Homes (local builder). Most homes are either 2-story or ranch style. The average home has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a 2-car garage and about 2,000 sf. But some homes have as many as 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and over 2,600 sf – probably due to a finished basement. The standard construction is wood frame and composition siding, but there are a few stucco siding homes throughout the neighborhood as well.
The Sand Creek housing market consists of homes ranging from the high $100k’s to the mid $200k’s. As of today, March 28, 2007, there are:
- 13 Homes actively on the market, with an average price of $209,403
- 4 Homes are currently under contract, with an average sales price of $189,450.
- 6 Homes have sold in the past 6 months, with an average selling price of $207,083
- The average “days on market” is about 3 months, or 99 days. This is lower than many other parts of Colorado Springs.
