Mancos Real Estate

Real estate: availability and cost

In 2000, the median home value for a single-family residence in Mancos was estimated at $94,200 as compared to the U.S. median of $119,200. Before you jump into the fray and search for a house in this small town of 1100, be ready with a list of things you want in your new home. Tell Realtors specifically what you are looking for and have them present you with a list of options ? your research should be mostly into your own wants. Realtors have a better knowledge of the neighborhoods, schools, and home prices in the area than you do, so content yourself with narrowing down the selection with which an agent presents you.

Three-bedroom single family residences are selling from $150,000 to $6 million (with lots of acreage). Condos and town homes are very difficult to find on your own, and it would be wise to use a real estate agent who specializes in condominium or town home sales if you are interested in this sort of property. If you want to start from scratch, land is available from $35,000 for a single acre to $2.15 million for 320 acres. Mancos real estate is diverse in price and style, so you'll surely find something to suit your needs and wants.

Mancos, Colo.

If you're looking for small-town charm with big-town accessibility, Mancos might be the right place for you. If you're looking for countless outdoor activities, year-round beautiful weather and a wealth of amazing history, Mancos provides it. Located between the La Plata Mountains and Mesa Verde National Park in southwestern Colorado, Mancos has over 300 days of sunshine every year and many ways to spend time outdoors. Famous as the home of ranchers and avid horse-back riders, Mancos originally was the home for the Anasazi people, ancestors of the Pueblo Indians.

Such an incredible history provides a rich cultural background for this small town as well as countless historical sites you can visit when you look for houses. Some of the more notable sites include Anasazi Heritage Center, the Mesa Verde National Park and Hovenweep National Monument. You could spend time horseback riding and exploring the trails, camping underneath a pristine and star-studded sky, or maneuvering through white water rapids of the Mancos area.

Mancos has been spared the isolation many small towns face by being in the path of the San Juan Skyway, a scenic freeway often celebrated as "America's Most Beautiful Drive." Countless tourists come through Mancos every year on the Skyway, providing a steady source of revenue for Mancos residents. Living in a small town can be perfect for those who work from home, but commuters often find themselves cut off and irritated by the distance. In Mancos, you don't have to worry about it because of the Skyway. The city also has a very low unemployment rate ? well below the Colorado state average ? which should make you feel at ease with the local economy.
