Dog Daze at the Bay in Broomfield - 08/31/08 06:15 PM
If your dog loves other dogs and loves water just as much, you really must take him to The Bay on September 13, from either 9-11 a.m. or 11 a.m.-1 p.m. or 1-3 p.m. Note that the swimming isn't for the humans, just for the dogs. To ensure there is enough space they would like you to pre-register. It's $5 for residents and $7 for non-residents. For those of you who don't know what The Bay is: it's Broomfield's Aquatic Park that is normally open (for the humans) from Memorial Day to Labor Day every year and includes serpentine slides an (0 comments)
There was in interesting article in the Wall Street Journal last week about how home buyers are growing more and more interested in buying a home in an area that is bicycle friendly. If you happen to be one of those buyers you may be interested in Willow Run which backs directly to the Dry Creek Open Space path and has 8 homes available for sale with a price range of $226,000-$273,900.Columbine Meadow is located directly west of Willow Run and has 3 available homes in the price range of $219,900-$229,000.Crofton Park which includes both townhomes and patio homes (0 comments)
Still think blogs aren't important? - 08/18/08 10:01 AM
Of course you don't! That's why you're reading this. But for further proof, I just found out today that Google has a special beta (which means it's still in the "testing" phase but good enough to be tested randomly by the public) search engine for blogs http://blogsearch.google.com/. (0 comments)
It is just kind of one of those days where you want to lounge around the house. One of my favorite things to do while lounging about is watch movies online. Here are some great sources to do just that: iTunes: I love to download movies to my iPod. I know, the screen is so tiny but I still love it because I can take it anywhere and watch them. If you rent a movie it expires in 24 hours but if you buy it you can keep it and watch it forever on your computer or your iPod. Blockbuster: (0 comments)
This pretty home is in move-in condition with brand new paint and carpeting throughout. It measures 1650 square feet total (825 main and 825 in basement) with 2 bedrooms and full bath on main floor and 2 non-conforming beds and 3/4 bath in basement. The basement also has a huge finished family room area with built in book shelves. The house sits on a lot that measures nearly 1/4 of an acre, includes a 1-car garage, additional enclosed parking area, AND additional RV/boat parking as well. There is a covered patio out back, perfect for BBQ or quiet summer nights (1 comments)
Broomfield City Council Update - 08/13/08 04:52 PM
I received my unofficial minutes from the recent Broomfield City Council meeting and thought I would share some of the notes I found interesting. It appears that that service area for the ZIP Shuttle at the Flatiron Mall will be expanding. For those of you who don't realize it, mall shoppers pay for the ZIP via an additional tax that is automatically added on through each merchant. (Check youre receipt!) The shuttle has come under some fire in the last year or so for costing an average of over $7 per passenger to operate. A new chapter regarding Public Nuisance may (0 comments)
What are they building in Broomfield now? - 08/08/08 12:23 PM
If you're like me, you often drive by areas in Broomfield and note all the construction work going on and want to know what the heck they're doing. (Of course if you're really like me you keep hoping for another Taco Bell - the one at 120th and Sheridan is just toooo busy.) If you'd like to know about Broomfield commercial development click here for a map. It appears from this, that most of the new activity is taking place at the Barber Farm area (behind KMart at 120th & Sheridan) where the new WalMart and other whatnots will be built. (0 comments)
I don't know about you but I love to rent movies from the Redbox movie rental boxes for $1. I tend to frequent the boxes at the WalMart at 136th and Huron and the McDonalds at 120th and Sheridan. I found out today you can get FREE movies on Wednesdays in August by allowing them to text you a code on your cell phone. Great day!! You can sign up here for your free movies. (0 comments)
Ever driven down 128th towards Zuni and noticed the Willow Run neighborhood in Broomfield? It's a great place to live! There are no covenants or HOA and it backs to the Dry Creek Open Space area! For my most recent market report on Willow Run go here. (0 comments)
Vote early! Vote often Broomfield! - 08/06/08 09:13 AM
Okay, okay, I'm kidding about the "often" part. But you can vote early in the Broomfield County primary starting today. You know, as often as I complain about bloated and inefficient bureaucracies (which is pretty much every day) I do have to give props to the Broomfield Clerk & Recorder's office. They appear to do pretty well in matters of voting and registration. I know that when I changed from having a party affiliation to Unaffiliated last spring, I mailed it in and in less than a week everything was completel. They also have so great online resources:
According to Metrolist statistics, at the end of June for 2008, there have been 467 single family homes sold and 64 condos sold. At this same time last year, in 2007, 531 single family homes sold and 71 condos sold. As of June 2008, the average sold price on a single family home was $337,321, while the average sold price on a condo was $212,970. Pop back in time to June 2007 and the average sold price on a single family home was $349,536 and for condos it was $201,026. The average Days On Market for the first 6 (0 comments)
