Living at Altitude
If you live in the Colorado Rocky Mountains you have probably uttered the phrase “Living at Altitude” Most likely you live a mile or 5280 feet above above sea level.
As a real estate agent in Colorado I’m often asked what the elevation of a property is, especially from out of state buyers. My smart phone has an app for that! And I have no idea of course how accurate the phone is but the app at least gives me a number that I can fill in on the MLS sheet.
The altitude around Canon City and Fremont County varies quite a bit. For instance the difference in elevation between my house and my office is 176 feet. I live approx 9 miles from my office.
And if you are a buyer looking for a “mountain property” you need to get to use to the idea that the elevations change and that driveways will most likely slant either uphill or downhill. Welcome to the Colorado Rocky Mountains !
