Why move to Northern Colorado? Great question! If 300 days of sunshine, mild winters, and beautiful mountain views are not enough, we also have some of the lowest unemployment rates nationally at under 4% as of September 2016. Still not enough, how about some of the lowest property taxes nationally at just 0.66%. This means that for every $100,000 of home value, the taxes are only $660. As of September 2016 the average price of homes in Larimer and Weld Counties were $319,000 and $251,800 respectively with annual property tax averages of $2105 and $1662. Still not convinced? In 2015 9 News Denver reported that Northern Colorado home prices are expected to double in the next 10 years. And this comes at a time when some areas of the country have falling home prices and rising unemployment.

Moving your family to a new state can be an enormous task. Many times your employer will help you greatly when it comes to selling your home and providing moving services. If you have to move on your own it is much more difficult. Even if you have help, there are still many things that are not covered such as student activities, the arts and sports. While the school year may not start until late August or early September, many programs have registration as early as January. If you do not want to hold back your young athlete or musical prodigy for a year, you need to start your search in October - November timeframe and be in your home by June in many cases. If you want to build, depending on your price range this process can take up to a year for some of the higher end homes and as little as 4 months for some lower priced high volume neighborhoods. We can work with the local builder of your choice to make this process easier for you. We are also parents and understand the local schools, neighborhoods, and extra circular activity requirements, qualifications, and timelines. Northern Colorado youth programs are very competitive and rank very high nationally. Many of our local athletes and arts students have won national contests, national championships and even have Olympic medals!
The Northern Colorado school systems are some of the highest rated public schools in the nation. Many schools offer school of choice and there are several charter schools that specialize in the arts, the sciences, core knowledge, and different sports disciplines.

If you do not really care about home prices, taxes, schools, the arts or athletics then you can enjoy our many outdoor activities. Would you like to golf in the morning and ski in the afternoon? There are several months in the year where that is possible.
