Making the move-Oregon Coast to Longmont
« on: August 03, 2020, 11:30:04 AM »
Found out last week that as a remote employee (software engineer for a regional bank) the footprint for where we can live has been extended to Colorado.  We have a nice house 2 miles from the beach on the Oregon Coast (Nehalem). We are ready to move on!  No problem with getting new mortgage or the move, yet what are best resources for finding a new home there?  Thanks.

Seems like quite a downgrade in quality of life. Will you save a lot?

Wasn't there a post exactly like this about a month ago?

Longmont is an interesting choice.... It's not exactly cheap. And there isn't anything of note there other than being a suburb of Boulder that farther from Denver. Oh, and it's on the way to RMNP. Other than having lots of sidewalks and bike trails (pretty typical in the front range anyway), it's just another pre-HOA suburb town. Strip malls, developments, nothing special. If you chose Longmont based off the blog, I'd do some more digging around for alternate locales.

My sister-in-law is a real estate agent in Boulder County. I use her for my real estate transactions. Let me know if you want her info.

I love the Colorado Front Range (Fort Collins to Pueblo). If you rent first and don't like Longmont, just move to another city on the Front Range.

I'm very familiar with that part of the Oregon coast (we have a vacation house there), but not very familiar with Longmont. We enjoy visiting the coast a lot, but would never live there full time for a variety of reasons.

What's driving your desire to change, and perhaps we can way in on that?

This is a weird part of this blog.  Many people on here try to mimic everything that MMM does.  It appears they can't think for themselves or they simply think MM is some all-knowing god.

Original poster, was there any reason you decided on Longmont other than the fact that MMM lives there?  If not, look elsewhere.

Many? Really?

In several years of wasting a lot of time here, I think I've only seen one or two posters, none of whom I know as regulars, mention something about moving to Longmont, which I do agree is kind of odd, but not at all something that I've seen as common to this place or this community.

Odd? Yes. Characteristic of the MMM community? Not that I've seen.

I would actually say that most regular community members here are pretty openly critical of MMM and don't god-worship at all.
