Generally, I would have to say that Loveland compares very well with other cities along the Front Range. It is considered one the top places to retire - and not just by AARP. Money magazine has written favorably about Loveland.
I didn't find information precisely on your points, but this site will allow you to look for yourself:
Best of luck.
I can't really say which area's you should stay away from in Loveland, but I can say if your looking for foreclosures, be for-warned that the majority of them need alot of work. It's very rare to see one that move in ready, and most need sanitized from floor to ceiling. Hope that kind of helps, let me know if I can answer any other questions.
