Academy District 20 Homes.  A recent analysis of home values in the area suggest Academy District 20 homes maintain their value better than other school districts in Colorado Springs.


Earlier this year we conducted an analysis of the homes sold in the three largest school districts in Colorado Springs, D-20, D-11, and D-49.  At the time we conducted

the analysis, it was clear that Academy District 20 homes held their value better over the past 5 years than homes in the other two school districts.


We discovered that on average, Academy District 20 homes and price per square foot are higher than the other two school districts; Academy District 20 homes had 

fewer properties sold at a loss (distressed); and despite the local decline in the market, Academy School District 20 homes actually appreciated over the past 5 years.

During the 5 years of the analysis, both D-11 and D-49 decreased overall in price per square foot, while Academy District 20 homes actually increased.  The percentage of distressed properties for D-11 and D-49 were both significantly higher (over 35%) than Academy District 20 homes (20%).
