With these top builders, I focus on these new home communities close to Fort Carson:
MESA RIDGE: My featured Saint Aubyn Homes community is Mesa Ridge, located at Mesa Ridge Parkway and Sneffels St. Mesa Ridge is just 3 miles to Fort Carson Gate 20, the closest new home community to Fort Carson. Its almost walking distance to the "The Markets at Mesa Ridge" shopping center.
PAINTED SKY at WATERVIEW: My featured Journey Homes community is Painted Sky at Waterview, located just south of Powers Boulevard at Grinell Avenue, about 10 miles to Fort Carson Gates 3 and 4 on the north side of Fort Carson. Painted Sky is even closer to Peterson AFB. Painted Sky's main attraction is convenience - closer to central Colorado Springs and all the stores and shops along Powers Boulevard.
CUCHARRES RANCH: My featured Challenger Homes community is Cucharres Ranch, located near Marksheffel Rd. and Drennan Rd. Cucharres Ranch is about 9 miles to Fort Carson Gate 20, and it's even closer to Peterson AFB. It has a "bedroom community" feel, in a quiet rural area. It's reasonably close to Fort Carson, Peterson AFB, and Schriever AFB, our three largest military installations.
FOREST MEADOWS: Both Saint Aubyn Homes and Journey Homes offer homes at Forest Meadows, located on Woodmen Road at Black Forest Road, on the north side of Colorado Springs. Some Army families choose homes here to be on the "north side" and also to be in the Falcon District 49 School District.
MERIDIAN RANCH: Saint Aubyn Homes offer homes at Meridian Ranch, located in the Falcon, CO area out Highway 24 from Peterson AFB. While this is a longer commute to Fort Carson, Meridian Ranch has special amenities that many Army families decide is worth the drive -- the planned community network of trails, parks, the golf course, and the outstanding recreation center.

To assist you in finding a home to fit your BAH, I provide you here with monthly payment estimates as follows: I start with the base prices and then add on the regular VA funding fee to calcuate your loan amount. (If you have partial or full VA disability your funding fee may be reduced or waived.) The monthly payments include principal, interest, and location-specific estimates for taxes and insurance, everything but utilities. The payments are based on 100% VA 30-year loans (with the builder paying all of your closing costs and prepaid expenses), 4.00% interest rates, and the balance of builder incentives applied toward price reduction.
Recently intereest rates have been fluctuating more than usual, in a range from 3.75% to 4.25% for military VA home buyers with good credit. Call me anytime at (800) 701-3965 for an update on rates and how to adjust the monthly payments shown here for today's rates. Or contact your VA lender for exact quotes. If you haven't applied with a lender yet, feel free to call me directly for quick answers! to your questions.
Base prices and standard features not only vary by builder, they vary by community. At every community, front yard landscaping and sprinklers are included. At some communities back yard landscaping and fencing are included, but at other communties they're not. Basic interior finish varies greatly from builder to builder. With one builder granite counters on the kitchen island are standard. With another builder, the island itself is extra. Just call me for details as I have this information and can give you much better estimates of real home prices and monthly payments than you will find anywhere else.
