Downtown Fort Collins is a great area to invest in! There are several amazing loft properties available near Old Town. The biggest question to define is your budget, as their is quite a range of price points in Downtown loft inventory available. You will likely want to work with a Buyers Agent who is knowledgeable about the Old Town area specifically and perhaps has even lived in Old Town too, such as myself. Feel free to view ALL lofts available at my website or email me and I can send you some that would be a good fit! ... more

I'm sure there are people who rent to owners of pit bulls, but they will be relatively few and far between. Unfortunately, many insurance companies put provisions in their policies for homes that the home cannot have a certain breed or breeds of dogs living in the home. Pit bulls are typically one of those breeds, along with Dobermans and sometimes German Shepherds. This is because those types of dogs (and others) are statistically proven to be more prone to bite or otherwise attack humans and animals than other, similar dogs.

It's an unfortunate fact, and I know that, as a landlord, I won't risk losing my insurance over a tenant having a specific type of dog, especially when there is such an overabundance of renters out there. I would also avoid Wellington, as i believe that the town there has a ban on Pit Bulls.

Best of luck to you.

1) Have a high quality 'co-signor' lined up.
2) Offer to prepay multiple months rent to reduce risk to the landlord.
3) Have a very well constructed letter explaining your circumstances, reasons for moving, verifiable job interview status, etc.

Essentially, make it easy for them to feel comfortable with you vs. someone else.

One would assume you are talking about Hearthfire in Skyrim. Haven't played it but I love the music. This might help: http://www.gamespot.com/the-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim/forum/hearthfire-issues-help-needed-63959115/

Also this is the greatest question I've seen posted on Trulia.

Sean Dougherty answered:
As this is still a very new development, I'm not sure thatyou can tell if improving or declining. There are a total of 9 listings there, and 4 have closed, so 5 are still available. It seems that all that have been listed are either still listed or sold, so that is good news.

I would assume that you will have more owner occupied at this point, just due to the price point of these units.

If you'd like to get in to see some of them, I'd be happy to help you with that. Feel free to write me at Sean@HawaiianShirtGuy.com. Thanks for your time!

Inventory is low, but it has been that way for the last few years in Fort Collins. It is especially lower in the winter as sellers are reluctant to move during the snowy months. However, there are also homes that have been on the market for many months that were either priced too high and Sellers are getting impatient and need to sell. This is an advantage for Buyers, as there is more room to negotiate. I just showed a home in Wellington yesterday that is easily $10K beneath the market value because the Seller just wants to move on! Do you know the area, and what style of house you are looking for?

We will have properties available August 1, 2013. I am unsure which ones at this time as the renewal process generally starts after Spring Break and ends in May. Please contact us at that time.

Best regards,

Hi, IMHO if you want them go ahead and have them installed, it's not going to hurt anything. Your having the home built for you, so go ahead and do it the want it. I think the more lights in a home the better. Just have them wired on a separate switch from the fan. ... more

Linda, Ft Collins is pet friendly everywhere !!! We are fortunate to have parks and trails all over so we can get out and enjoy. There are several "doggie parks" and open spaces to let your dogs run free. There are several doggie day care facilities,too.
Ft Collins is also so fortunate to have world renowned Colorado State University Veternarian Teaching Hospital right here !!!! As a result , many graduates love NoCo, so after graduating they opened private practice here. So, we have many great vet offices,too. !!!
Get out and enjoy !!!

Suz A answered:
The little things count and it might be worth investigating what you will need if you buy a vehicle that has to be charged. Even if your are dead set against going electric, the next owner may like them. If you take up golf, you might need some accommodation for a golf cart. Make sure you have an adequate electrical panel. That goes for the basement, too.

Here are a few other suggestions:
Lots of outlets. With my last home, I made sure I had strategically placed outlets and light fixtures. Some builders offer packages and some let you pick and choose how many and where they will go.

The 220s. Absolutely have at least one 220 located in the garage (that is in addition to the kitchen and laundry room). A few 110s are good, too.

Outdoor outlets and fixtures. Have a covered outlet installed for the front yard and back yard. You might coordinate your electrical needs with the outside lighting that fits your lifestyle. If you're the Chevy Chase type who needs to light up the entire county at Christmas time, now's the time to install that extra outlet.

Energy savers. Florescent is good for laundry rooms, basement work areas and a few other places where you're going to be for short periods. But lavish on lighting for dining rooms and kitchens where you will be spending most of your time. The builder's designer or the builder will tell you the kitchen is definitely where you want to spend any extra cash.

While you're at it, you might want to investigate installing a thermostat that communicates with your computer. Smart homes are here.
