The amenities throughout the city included several pools, both indoor and outdoor. Union Reservoir, which provides many outdoor activities including sailing, camping, and fishing, is one of our favorites. Parks within the city include Skate Parks, Biking Obstacles Courses, and even an Outdoor Skating Rink. The kids love coming out on a sunny day to play with friends. While the kids are playing, there are also several public golf courses for the adults to enjoy.

Real Estate Market
The current real estate environment in Longmont reflects much of what is seen throughout the Front Range with exceedingly low inventory. There is about a 30% deficiency in inventory between 2015 and the average over the past 5 years. That said, this is still one of the best areas to find a house that is a fair price with the potential for the opportunity to negotiate. That is because overall there are by far more listings coming to the market in Longmont than in most other cities throughout Boulder County. In the Longmont area homes are selling for about 99% of list price, showing that there may be some room to work with the Sellers on price or other considerations.
