Price Per Square Foot

This number is a good indicator of Market Health as well. It tends to strip away a lot of the Superfluous data that surrounds sales prices and reduces the area to a simple number. While we would never use price per square foot to price a home we were putting on the market, it's a good indicator for homebuyers to use when they are trying to figure out how much they're going to need to spend in a particular area. As of the end of January 2020, the Briargate Colorado price per square foot number sits at $156 per square foot.

The school district in conjunction with a growing list of amenities and great location for anybody needing to get to Colorado Springs or Denver makes Briargate a good bet for 2020.
