Relief is on The Way!

There is good news and bad news.
The good news is I-25 traffic relief is on the way. The bad news is we will have to live through three summers of construction before it’s done.
Did you know the 26 miles between Highway 14 in Fort Collins and Highway 66 in Longmont Interstate 25 serves more than 45,000 cars per day? Wow!
Part of that stretch of interstate will get a third lane starting this summer. Construction is set to begin next month that will add a third lane between Highway 14 and Highway 402.
The project is happening 14 years ahead of schedule thanks to additional funding from several sources including the Cities of Fort Collins and Loveland. The first step we will notice is construction on the I 25/Highway 34 intersection.
This is great news for our region that will bring much needed relief. We will all just need to be a little patient while the work is being done.

This just in…
For the month of April, the average price of a home in the city of Boulder was $1,247,000. This is according to the latest from our IRES MLS system.
If you want to own a home about an hour down the road in another really nice college town and get a 66% discount, you may want to check out Fort Collins 🙂
Yes, despite the recent uptick in prices here locally, we are still a bargain compared to Boulder. Here are median single-family prices for our markets and their relative price to Boulder:
• Fort Collins = $414,237 (66.8% off)
• Loveland = $360,150 (71.1% off)
• Greeley = $290,000 (76.7% off)
• Windsor = $306,450 (75.4% off)

Dramatic Increase of Water Tap Fee’s:

By Bianca Myers - April 25, 2018
Categories: Westmark Homes

We are reaching out to all of our current & past clients to help us stop the Fort Collins Loveland Water District from dramatically increasing water rates . The district will be voting on a new board of directors on May 8th  for election information & location CLICK HERE. This board will then vote on implementing a rate increase. This rate increase will effect a number of things, commercial tap fees, residential tap fee’s and every day domestic water rates.

We are asking for your support to help us elect Jon Turner (Highland Meadows developer) to the board and stop the rate increase from happening. WestMark Homes CO is counting on keeping our tap fee’s at a reasonable rate to help support the growth of our family business and provide our customers with a quality home building experience.
We appreciate your time and support!

Sincerely,
The WestMark Family

Most Active

Here’s a question we sometimes hear…
“What is the most active price range in our market?”
For most of Northern Colorado, the range of $300,000 to $500,000 is far and away the most active (no surprise there). For example, in Fort Collins there are more than three times as many sales in this price range compared to the range of $500,000 to $700,000.
The one exception is Greeley. In Greeley the most active price range is under $300,000. This price range has twice as many sales as the $300,000 to $500,000 range. Why is this true for Greeley and not other places? You guessed it – it’s because the other locations don’t have much inventory under $300,000.
It’s interesting to note that in Fort Collins there are more sales in the $500,000 to $700,000 range than the under $300,000 range. This was not the case even one year ago.
The market is changing right before our eyes.
