East Side/West Side Ordinance Repealed!

Great news came on Tuesday night when the Fort Collins City Council repealed the East Side/West Side Ordinance that had been pushed through by City Council earlier this year with no thought to property rights or the opinion of the people. Through the efforts of many different groups and individuals in Fort Collins, it was brought to the City Council’s attention yet again that if this was put to a vote it would be knocked down by a huge margin. Turns out people do actually care about property rights in Old Town which is great to hear!

Although to avoid embarassing themselves further, the City Council has said that they will continue to irresponsibly spend taxpayer money on “researching” the issue. But for the time being, property rights of Old Town owners are safe.

The Northern Colorado Investment Market Is Only Getting Stronger!

It looks as though the ACE Technology Park in Loveland will be renovated, and has the potential to bring about 100 companies and 7,000 jobs to the area. While this is great news for the northern Colorado economy, it is also great news for the northern Colorado real estate investor! With vacancy in both Fort Collins and Loveland at all time lows, there will be even MORE people moving to town that will want to rent for a while prior to purchasing, or rent indefinitely if they are only temporary employees. The market around the Colorado State University campus for real estate investment has had increasing rents and quick sales, but the same possibilties exist around the new technology campus.

Renters will want to be close enough to work to not have a long commute, but also be close enough to the foothills to enjoy all of the outdoor activities that Colorado has to offer. I am already evaluating residential investment properties in the pertinent areas, and I would love to show you some of the numbers I’m coming up with.
