Louisville, Colorado is a growing Denver suburb that is also close to the University Town of Boulder. It has been going through a transformation of sorts over the past several years. Large companies, such as Pearl Izumi , have now located their corporate headquarters into our area. And many new shops, restaurants, and breweries have opened giving Louisville a some cool urban traits while still keeping the small, suburban atmosphere in tact.
Affordable Louisville Homes For Sale
One of the main reasons for Louisville, Colorado popularity is the proximity to Boulder. As Boulder housing continues to become more and more un-affordable, the average sales price of a single family home in Boulder after the first quarter of 2016 was $968,000. And, frankly that does not buy a particularly large or great home. Boulder is the highest priced Denver suburb on a price per square foot basis for homes for sale. And, with companies like Google expanding into Boulder, prospects for even higher prices are likely.
On the other hand, Louisville will continue to be seen as a great alternative to Boulder’s high home prices. The other main benefits in Louisville include great schools, proximity to both Denver and Boulder job opportunities and world class outdoor activities.
Small Town Colorado Charm
Another main trait that separates Louisville from surrounding towns is our “Old Town” It’s also known as Downtown Louisville. This area is rich in history, dating back to the coal mining era. Walking through Old Town you can feel the history and character from decades prior, but also enjoy modern updates and additions in the form of hip restaurants, breweries, and shops all locally owned and operated.
Once mid-June rolls around this Old Town area thrives. There’s the free Friday night festival called the Louisville Street Faire. This year the Street Faire begins on June 17th with March Fourth Marching Band (which I highly recommend) and runs for 7 weeks. Local companies have tents set up, there is an entire section devoted to wearing down our kids with slides, jumpy castles, and lots of fun activities for them. There are food tents and food trucks and a beer/wine garden for the adults. Plus, there are live bands which change weekly.
Pick A Local Real Estate Expert
Currently, our housing inventory is extremely low. Homes can be found but they sell quickly. And, not all home sales are even shown the local MLS. That makes working with a local expert even more important. I’ve been in the area 15 years now as a Denver relocation broker and am always happy to meet for coffee in town to discuss the market, schools, and your relocation timeline.
I suggest putting Louisville, Colorado on your shopping list if you are considering relocating to the North Denver suburbs. And, put me on your list as a knowledgeable local, Louisville Realtor who can help get you on the inside track to moving here. I work with Relocation Clients all the time and would love to hear from you.
