Why you should consider Berthoud as a viable option!
For those of you living in Fort Collins, you clearly know that your Real Estate search is much more difficult than it was even two years ago. Less inventory, more expensive home prices, and the competition that just gets fiercer and fiercer every single year. We hope that you don't interpret this post as telling you not to look for a home to buy in Fort Collins. Rather, we hope that you look at this post and realize that there are other options that may be a bit easier both on your psyche and your wallet.
We spoke a bit about Johnstown in our last post, because we have been seeing more and more families look for affordable housing just south of Fort Collins. While we love living in the Fort, and will do whatever we can to help our real estate clients find the perfect dream home up here in Choice City, we have been getting quite a few requests to see some homes in the Berthoud area.
What do you know about Berthoud? We spend a lot of time there, from our involvement with Berthoud athletes, and of course as a sponsor of the Berthoud Sports Hall of Fame. Up until about two years ago, we had only sold a handful of homes in Berthoud, as we stayed around Loveland and Fort Collins pretty exclusively. But Berthoud has become one of our favorite cities, for a number of reasons.
1. Berthoud is a town of about 6,000 people, and it has an incredible small town feel to it. You won't find anyone in a hurry unless they are wizzing by on Highway 287, which is very accessible and close to downtown Berthoud.
2. The schools. Berthoud has two elementary schools - Ivy Stockwell Elementary, and Berthoud Elementary. Turner Middle School provides the education for the 6th-8th graders, and Berthoud High School takes care of everything through a student's senior year.
3. The proximity to everything in Northern Colorado. Berthoud is just minutes from Loveland, and about 35 minutes from downtown Fort Collins. Denver is easily reachable in under an hour via I-25, and Longmont is just 20 minutes south of Berthoud on CO 287.
4. There are some very nice new construction housing developments being built in and around Berthoud currently, and the PGA Tour just broke ground on a TPC golf course, to open up in 2018!
