Buy a new home near Peterson Air Force Base with 100% VA financing!
The new BAH rates for Peterson AFB make it a great time to buy a brand new home with a 100% VA loan! I'll find you homes which fit your BAH just the way you like, with a home payment to match your BAH, or a home payment lots less, so your BAH covers your monthly payment plus utilities!
With VA Debt Reduction, the VA will pay off $8,000 to $12,000 or more of your debts!
Now, when you buy a home, the VA offers you DEBT REDUCTION -- the VA will pay off $8,000 to $12,000 of your Military Star Card, Omni Loan, car loan, or other debts -- to make your monthly payments more affordable. This is when you buy a home priced from $200k to $300k. You can add up to 4% total debt reduction to the home price, so for a $400k home you can add $16k in debt reduction.
With my Home Buyer Rebate program, I give you $2,000 to $3,000 or even more!
Use the money for DEBT REDUCTION, to pay for home UPGRADES and appliances, to pay towards loan CLOSING COSTS, or for CASH BACK AT CLOSING! Your buyer rebate amount will be approximately 1% of the new home purchase price, so for a $400k home, its $4,000. A $500k home = $5,000.
I've worked with more than 600 military families since starting this program in 2004, everyone from retired general officers to E-3's. While this site is devoted largely to homes in the $200k to $350k price range, I have many years experience also working mostly with Air Force officers with their purchases of homes in the $400k to $700k price range, at locations including Pine Creek, Wolf Ranch, Cordera and Flying Horse, and with builders including Saddletree Homes, Classic Homes, Vantage Homes and Keller Homes.
Whenever your report date, and wherever you are now, I'll make it easy for you to have a new home ready to move into when you arrive at Peterson. Choose from homes ready now or ready soon, or have a home custom built. Do all this with as little as $1 down, and sign all your purchase documents online.
It's my mission to provide you with the best help possible, knowing your special requirements. Here you will find more complete and accurate information about new homes here than you will find anywhere else.
If you're arriving at Peterson in the next 90 days, there are always fine new homes ready now and ready soon -- I'll help you coordinate your home purchase with your report date. If you have 90 days or more until your report date, you can customize your dream home via Skype.

My MORE NEW HOMES page features best-selling homes by the top builders in Colorado Springs, Saint Aubyn Homes, Challenger Homes, and Journey Homes. (I'll be adding Aspen View Homes soon.) There are many more new home builders in Colorado Springs. I will help you with any home you wish to buy from any builder.
With these top builders, I focus on these new home communities close to Fort Carson:
MESA RIDGE: One Saint Aubyn Homes community is Mesa Ridge, located at Mesa Ridge Parkway and Sneffels St. Another is Lorson Ranch, located a few miles further east. Mesa Ridge is 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, just south of 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 just a few miles south of Peterson's East Gate on Marksheffel Blvd. 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. Two other builders, Premier Homes and Creekstone Homes, offer homes here.
FOREST MEADOWS: Both Saint Aubyn Homes and Aspen View Homes offer homes at Forest Meadows, located off Woodmen Road at Black Forest Road, on the north side of Colorado Springs. Many Air Force families choose homes here to be on the "north side" and also to be in the Falcon District 49 School District. Challenger Homes and Keller Homes will be building homes here later this year.
MERIDIAN RANCH: Saint Aubyn Homes offer homes at Meridian Ranch, located in the Falcon, CO area out Highway 24 from Peterson AFB. Meridian Ranch has special amenities that many Air Force families prefer -- the planned community network of trails, parks, the golf course, and the outstanding recreation center.
Monthly payment estimates.
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.
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.
