Greeley is growing fast and offers plenty of opportunities for newcomers to the region with excellent Greeley real estate.
About 50 miles north of Denver, at the confluence of the South Platte and Cache la Poudre rivers, sits the town of Greeley, an agricultural development that has since attracted all kinds of residents working many different jobs in many different industries. While farming still forms the basis for the local economy, Greeley is growing fast, much like many of the other cities in Northern Colorado. People are flocking to Greeley houses for new economic opportunities, access to some of the most beautiful natural areas in the United States, and the feel of an old, small town without missing out on the amenities of a big city. Even with the new attention, Greeley still has many beautiful homes for sale.
Greeley is home to University of Northern Colorado, which was founded in 1889 as the State Normal School, a teacher’s education college. In the 128 years that followed its founding, however, UNC became known for its high-quality business programs, as well as its performing arts and nursing programs. UNC is uniquely involved in the culture of Greeley, drawing guest artists and speakers who brighten the cultural landscape of the town. UNC also hosts one of the largest jazz festivals in the United States every spring.
Over the past two decades or so, Greeley has experienced a renaissance, continuing age-old traditions like the Greeley Stampede, a community event over 100 years old featuring rodeos, concerts, and other opportunities for family fun, while investing in itself to create a vibrant arts and culture scene. This influx of new and old has invigorated the Greeley real estate market. Downtown Greeley has been recognized as a Colorado Certified Creative District, and the surrounding neighborhoods host community events, such as the First Friday Art Walk all year long.
