ColoradoSpringsEstates.com is for sale.
A must-have domain name for a Colorado Springs real estate agency. Any realtor in Colorado would be well served to own this domain.
Colorado, the Centennial State, should have been called the Rocky Mountain State, the River State, or the Canyon State.
It's all of that and so much more.
Ranging in the top 10 by size, it proudly stands at number 8 with over 100,000 square miles, enough space for diverse geography ranging from the summit of Mount Elbert at 14,400 feet to its lowest point of 3,317 feet.
'Rocky Mountain High' so fittingly is the official State song, and it made John Denver, who wrote the song together with Mike Taylor, immortal for generations to come.
You can choose from a 19 acres custom home in Northeast Colorado Springs, with six bedrooms and nine bathrooms asking $7.200,000, to an estate in the Broadmoor Community on a quaint 2 acres with a pool and a fountain for just $5,700,000.
The price is somewhat lower than the one above because this Renaissance estate only has six bathrooms instead of 9.
Should you be inclined to decline to have to take care of so much land and maintenance, there are many tasteful and elegant brownstones available, too. Take Carriage Manor Point - just across from the Broadmoor Hotel - a 5-star Colorado Springs resort - this two-bedroom, four-bath residence is currently on the market for $2,175,000.
Select a licensed, Professional Colorado Springs Real Estate agent to get the most for your money. The choice is yours, and almost 3,000 agents are working in the area. A full-time realtor with many years of experience will undoubtedly be wise to find the best home for your needs.
Interstate 25 takes you right into the heart of Colorado Springs, with Denver only 65 miles to the north, Aspen 110 miles towards the NW, and Boulder 85 miles to the north.
While there is no plausible reason to leave Colorado and Colorado Springs in particular, here are some places that you could visit (if you must) to gamble, hear the blues on Bourbon Street, take the kids to Disney World or go shopping on Fifth Avenue.
Colorado Springs to Las Vegas is 598 miles, New Orleans 1039 miles, Orlando 1521 miles, and New York 1637 miles.
Before you rush off to get seats on a plane, let me remind you that those places on the planet will not give you this 'Rocky Mountain High' feeling you get right here in Colorado Springs. No matter what the season.

We all know .com is king. You've got to wonder if ICANN left things as they were and did not issue any more extensions. That would be like in a city where all you have are streets. It could not be visible.
Hélas, ICANN, with their continued expansion drive, has not and will not stop. No, 1000 extensions are by far not enough. The startups are rejoicing today because they can have just about any domain name they want because of extension galore. Be careful and think twice before ending like New Coke.
However, an extension other than .com often does make sense. For example, whole countries' tourism offices have taken to .travel extensions, much to the dismay of domain name collectors who held the .com version.
It sure makes much sense if you own a hotel and add a .hotel extension to your name. It probably does as well with a .hotel suffix, as the .com version. In addition, the purchase money saved over the .com version might make it easier for a startup to keep funds in its pockets.
While .me and .xyz still seem to struggle to find their place, other extensions, to mention a few, like .city. .pizza and .app seem to be doing rather well.
My all-time favorite non .com, of course, is Vacation .rentals. It is the ultimate in a non .com extension. Keyword loaded, not being used as the final URL, but forwarded—the perfect link example.
Any extension other than .com can be undoubtedly helpful when it fits the domain name, as long as the domain name and extension complement each other.
Make sure your website's title, name, and extension, ring a bell to your targeted audience. The right keyword domain with a content matching extension is the best for your website address.
The positive about ICANN is that it allows anyone to register any available extension they fancy, as silly as that might turn out.
AOL(.)com might not have been the last bummer that experienced domain name sunset.
