Moving to Northern Colorado?

Here are 10 reasons why you will love living here

Northern Colorado is a term that is often used by local Coloradoans to describe the Northern Front Range towns that are north of Denver and east of the Rocky Mountains. If you are making the move to Northern Colorado, we know you are going to love it!  Here are the top 10 reasons why:

1. Location. Our Tralon communities are generally in smaller towns and provide easy access to larger cities like Fort Collins and Denver.

2. Affordable Housing. Housing demand in Northern Colorado continues to grow due to the quality of life that many desire. We offer gorgeous new affordable homes for you to choose from in Windsor, Timnath, Severance, Loveland and Fort Collins.

3. Stunning Views. The views in Northern Colorado are something to experience. You have the mountain views to the west and high plains views to the east. The sunsets are incredible and picture perfect! We also have beautiful trails, lakes, and streams in the surrounding foothills and mountains.

4. Amazing Weather. Did you know most people think that it snows all the time in Colorado? It is our little secret that winters are mild with an average daily high temperature of 45 degrees and even some 60 degree days are sprinkled in there. We receive nearly 300 days of sunshine, which makes Colorado one of the sunniest places in America. The snow doesn’t stay on the ground long in Colorado so golf courses and outdoor cafes are able to stay open all year.

5. Healthy Lifestyle. A recent study showed that Colorado is the second fittest state in America. Many cities in our area host Farmer’s Markets throughout the week with locally grown produce and goods.

6. Outdoor Recreation. Northern Colorado has plenty of options for things to do, regardless of the weather.
