The Best Areas in North Metro to find land (and buy/build garages)

Denver is a forever-growing city right now, with more cranes sprinkled along the Denver skyline then we have seen in a long time, there is always buildings going up. But as everyone knows, as the city continues to grow the one thing that we will see less and less of is actual land and I have many clients who are looking for areas to live where they can still have some acres to themselves and not look directly into their neighbor’s windows. These same clients want to make sure their commute isn’t going to take up hours of their days either because no one wants to spend 1-3 hours driving every day when they could be spending that time working, with their family or enjoying other activities.

 

An area I tell these clients to look is North Metro, just a hop, skip and jump down US-36 and I-25 heading towards Boulder but not quite that far.  These areas are easy and accessible to the highway so for anyone who may work in downtown Denver, they have a fairly easy commute to and from the city. But these areas also allow homebuyers the opportunity to have some real land where they are able to either build or just own. My family and I live in Brighton Colorado, which is about a half-hour drive from Denver each way. The area we live in is called Todd Creek Estates, a wonderful neighborhood with lots of room between homes and plenty of space for a garage to hold a good car collection. One thing my wife and I are passionate about is our car collection. Something we look forward to every year together as a family is heading to the car show to find a new car to add to the fleet. Because we have a growing collection, we needed to find an area that allowed for us to have garages of a decent size and also the ability to build if need be. For those clients who are looking for areas that have space for land these are some of the neighborhoods I recommend:

 

Spruce Meadows - Broomfield, CO

Lexington, Westminster, CO

Erie Air Park - Erie, CO 

Mustang Acres - Broomfield, CO

Tiara Estates - Broomfield, CO

Todd Creek - Brighton, CO

Pony Estates - Broomfield, CO

Eagle Shadow - Brighton, CO

Lake Avery Estates - Thornton, CO

Glen Eagle Estates - Thornton, CO

Angel View Estates - Frederick, CO

These areas are all located in Broomfield, Westminster, Thornton and Brighton all part of that North Metro area. If you are thinking it might be time to head outside the city and find a spot with a bit more land and a little more privacy, one of these neighborhoods could be perfect for you.

Homes For Heroes

Through previous blogs, you may know that I am a volunteer EMT at highland rescue team. I really enjoy being able to give back to the community with my time and efforts to keep the city a safer place. Through doing this, I have met many wonderful volunteers, firefighters, military and law enforcement officers. Because of my strong connection with all of these amazing men and women I wanted to write today about an incredible program out there called Homes for Heroes.

 

Homes for Heroes was first established shortly after 9/11 and is the largest nationwide network of affiliate real estate specialists and local business affiliates who are committed to providing easy ways for heroes to save on a home and on every day home-related purchases. Along with that, every time a hero uses Home for Heroes, they give a portion of that money back to another hero in need.

 

i am currently working on several transactions with different Heroes and I have to say, it was a very rewarding experience. For the men and women who give their time, energy and efforts to help this county in so many different ways, I feel this is just a small portion of how we can give back to them to thank them for all their services.

 

As a real REALTOR, I take pride in helping my clients find the house to make a home and Through programs like Homes for Heroes, people in the real estate world are able to give back as well as help others through our way of work. If you know of anyone who fits the criteria to receive help from Heroes, please send them my way. I would love the opportunity to help more heroes with their real estate hopes and dreams.
