Today we’ll answer that question and provide a thorough recap of our 2020 Colorado Springs real estate market. Whether you should be worried about your real estate prospects in 2021 depends on what side of the transaction you fall on. If you’re a seller, 2021 may turn out to be a very good year for you.
