Hi my husband and I and our 11 year old daughter are strongly considering moving to Loveland. We are currently living in Northern Indiana and have all of our lives, we are looking for a change and have wanted to move to CO for a long time. We are looking at moving in the next within the next 9 months or so.

We are both self employed and my daughter is homeschooled so jobs and schools are not an issue for us, we are just looking for a change of scenery and a lot more opportunities for our family.

We will probably rent for a year or so to make sure its the area we want to be in.

So, I guess i would just like some comments, advice or any help you can give, what are some nice apartments to rent, we would like to be in the 800 to 1200 a month range. But we are flexible.

Thanks in advance for all your help and comments!!!

You can use our search tool to find threads in the FOCO forum that speak to apartments and rentals.

Meanwhile, use padmapper.com to get a handle on what's available and prices. If you end up looking at listings on craigslist (CL), be sure to read the warnings on that site as there are lots of scammers who pull pix of nice homes off realtor sites, slap them on CL and then try to get people to send cash deposits and/or provide all their info and credit card numbers on phony "application forms."

Albell, You will be able to find a rental in that range. Obviously the higher price will get you a lot better place, location and size. Loveland is a quiet, sort of sleepy town, but the rental market is fairly high demand. I own a renatl house in Loveland and always have a LOT of people wanting it and they tell me that it is hard to find anything available. This might be different with apartments though. Decide on what part of town you are interested in and search from there. Also, since you're not too familliar with the area, try to find a short term lease. That way if you decide that Loveland is not for you, there is the option to relocate. Loveland, Fort Collins and Windsor are all very close to each other, but each has a completely different vibe and you may find one better than the other once you have arrived. Good Luck!

Default Any part of Loveland to avoid?

BTW, we are also planning to move to Loveland as retirees.
We are interested in buying a small house. Sorry to add questions.

We'll visit in the spring and look around.

I like the fact it's quieter there but can access Ft. Collins quickly.

Loveland has a few spots to avoid, but like many towns, they are small and scattered. I have found that areas with a high amount of apartment complexes generally have more " issues" than those that don't. The farther you are from main streets seem to fare better. I am seeing that the neighborhoods near the old downtown are SLOWLY getting more desirable and a lot of people are revamping some of the older homes. I have also found that the inexpensive tract subdivisions built in the mid 2000's are going down hill a bit due to forclosures. Also, there seems to be a fairly large amount of Fort Collins people relocating to Loveland because of the quieter environment.

You'll soon find that these days you can barely tell when Loveland ends and when Fort Collins begins (at least along Highway 287). Loveland is a lot like other cities in Northern Colorado, but in order for me to help you more, I would like to know why Loveland specifically?
