Here’s what one of our Loveland real estate agents had to say about the area:
What’s it like to live in Loveland?
If you love art, you will love living in Loveland. There’s just something about the natural mountain beauty that attracts artists to our little community. With so many artists that call the area home, you will find something artistic to do almost everywhere you look. An art museum, an annual sculpture show, and three foundries are just some examples of this. Of course, with the community being so close to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park, you’ll also enjoy plenty of opportunities to hike, ski, and explore the mountainside.
Life in Loveland isn’t all fun, games and paintings, though. There’s also a thriving business community, and job opportunities are abundant. Also, with the city’s convenient location on U.S. 34, it’s simple to commute to Boulder, Westminster, and much of the Denver metro area for work.
What types of homes are in Loveland?
Loveland’s real estate market offers a number of home choices for you to consider. Many love the convenience of a condo or townhouse, with its maintenance-free lifestyle, and there are several communities with these available in communities like Arbor Meadows. Single-family homes are the most common type in Loveland, and many new developments are popping up in carefully planned communities like Meadowbrook Ridge and Thompson River Ranch. Whether you are looking for a roomy ranch-style home or a two-story model with a view of the mountains, Loveland’s market will deliver!
As you drive through the various neighborhoods in Loveland, one thing will stick out in your mind, and that is the sense of community. Sidewalks with mature trees lead from homes to neighborhood parks, where residents can congregate to let their kids play and enjoy the fresh Colorado air. Views of the mountains from the back porch or front lawn are also common, and life in Loveland is simply enjoyable as a result.
What’s unique about Loveland?
You can’t have a name like Loveland without having a tie in to the holiday of love: Valentine’s Day — and Loveland has certainly made a name for itself. Every year the city participates in the Valentine Re-Mailing Program. Because of the city’s name, people will send their valentines to Loveland to be hand-stamped with a commemorative Valentine’s Day stamp and postal cancellation. The city will then send the valentine on to the intended recipient with a holiday-specific stamp and postal cancellation. This captures the whimsical, artistic lifestyle that you will love as a resident of the community.
