    • January 2016 Market Update for Old Town Longmont

      December 2015, has not slowed down in Old Town. Granted, there may seasonally less home for sale, but the movement and activity is still there. The momentum would be more IF there was more inventory.

      The current listings are ones that priced too high. About 4 have been bought for the sole purpose of renovation, and while they look nice, they are too high for the area still.
      There are 11 active and 11 sold with 4 under contract.

      One thing you are able to see in new neighborhoods, that is you can’t really count on in Old Town is price per square foot. You can have a 4000 square foot home, next to a 1,500 foot home. I does not hurt the larger home to be next to a smaller home,

    • When Will Sunset Bridge Be Completed??

      Wow it’s been since 2013 that the 1,000 year flood took out our Sunset Bridge.

      I have used this forever as my cut thru going from Old Town to South Longmont, avoiding much traffic from Main Street or Hover Street.

      The city has taken (in my opinion), far too long to decide how to rebuild the bridge, all while having FEMA Funds delivered….. At any rate, here’s what we got:

      Construction began November 30, 2015. The project is expected to last six months, with the new bridge opening in May 2016.

      The bridge and surrounding work area will be closed throughout construction. Automobile traffic will continue to be detoured as it has been throughout the bridge closure. Bicyclists and pedestrians will be routed around the construction zone via St. Vrain Greenway to the Boston Avenue underpass. Access to businesses on either side of the bridge and Izaak Walton Park will be maintained throughout construction. The bridge will reopen to pedestrians, bi

    • First Snow Day!!

      Well, it might be a snow day, but that is not sleep in day in Old Town. Folks are jogging with their dogs, kiddos are out building igloos, and we have cross country skiers cruising down the streets.

      Last week, we had the Longmont Parade with over 85 floats!! 8z flashed our new Shasta in the parade and tossed out candy.
      There were awesome fireworks, horse and carriage rides, hot cocoa huts, ice skating at the rink, santas workshop for kids to build toys, santas reindeers and SANTA Parachuting into Roosevelt Park!

      Gotta love The Heart of Longmont – Old Town Longmont!!
      Happy Holidays!

    • Longmont Brewery Tour

      Longmont is fast becoming known as the Colorado’s Beer Brewing capital. Many of the breweries are within a healthy walking distance. Why not gather a few friends and take a tour! Too many to do in one night? Split them up. You could do east of Main St, west of Main St and then Hover. Let us know how you go! Have fun and be safe!
