City Traits

longmont coloradoThe first thing I must mention as I prepare to write this Longmont City guide is the spectacular views of the Front Range including the majestic mountain, Longs Peak. The mountains serve as a backdrop for this family friendly and fitness conscious community. Located just minutes from Boulder, there are miles of trails for walking, biking, and running. From these trails, there is the chance to view wildlife, such as Bald Eagles, White-tailed Deer and reptiles. Most of the residents will be on one of those enjoying the amazing days in Colorado. 

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.

Any Longmont City guide must mention the many distinctive neighborhoods in Longmont. There is something for everyone. From Old Town Longmont, which is rich in history to Prospect which offers unique modern homes. An exciting addition that has begun in Longmont is the NEXTLIGHT Broadband Service.  Longmont is leading the way in offering high-speed, fiber-optic Internet to its residents, and is among just a few cities in the country that provide it.

Downtown Life

Every Longmont City Guide must mention the many opportunities for social interaction within the community. A big event that both former and current residence look forward to and attend is Cruise Night. longmont coThe event occurs in the summer, and is a great time to visit one of the many excellent restaurants; set up a chair on the sidewalk and watch the classic and vintage cars drive on by. The city is also known for it’s large number of Micro-breweries. Many which offer tours, specials events and concerts.

ARTWALK is another exciting event is Longmont that has been going strong since 1996. During the event a portion of Main Street is closed to traffic and open to pedestrians who can experience live music, performance artists, participate in children’s activities, and see the works of local artists.

In the heart of Downtown Longmont you will find the perfect spot for a date night! Modena Wine Café. They offer 150 wines by the glass, and excellent food in a laid-back, non-pretentious atmosphere. There is also outdoor seating to enjoy all those sunny, warm Colorado days. Just down the block, is The Pumphouse Brewery and The Red Zone. There, guests can enjoy great burgers, nachos and of course beer! It is a fantastic place to watch sporting events, particularly March Madness and NFL Football. A new mall is coming to Longmont in 2015.  It is called Village at the Peaks. It will feature a brand new movie theater, a gym, a members only big box store! There will also be a children’s play area and outdoor stage. As well as unique boutiques and restaurants.

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.
