September Food Drive

remaxfooddriveforourcenter2009Thank you again Longmont for all your help with supporting the O.U.R. center through the food drive.  RE/MAX Traditions and the Longmont community provided an excellent contribution to the O.U.R. center during the month of September!

There was 630 pounds of food delivered, which was enough to fill a full size pick-up truck!  Donations included $34 in cash contributions as well as food.  Please continue to support our community with us and the O.U.R. center as the need for food is considerably higher this year than past years. 

Thank you again to our wonderful community! We are working hard together to keep Longmont the best place on earth to live!

September is Food Drive Month!

our_centerHelp the Longmont community and the O.U.R. Center by bringing in your canned food goods to the RE/MAX Traditions office on 18th and Hover in Longmont, Colorado (2204 18th ave). 

What is the O.U.R. Center?
“We help people in the St. Vrain Region move toward self-sufficiency by unifying community resources”

The O.U.R. Center helps community members get back on their feet to become self-sufficient productive adults by offering: food, clothing, utility, rental assistance, shelter, prescriptions, affordable child care, budgeting advise, transportation, help in finding a job, or advocacy in getting the help they need for their disabilities.

A significant portion of their funds go toward utility assistance, as utility shutoff is often the lynch pin that starts the downward spiral toward homelessness.

If you come on September 26th for the Shred-it truck, bring your canned goods too!

Are you concerned about your Adjustable Rate Mortgage?

Stop in to RE/MAX Traditions and talk to one of our Real Estate Brokers. We may be able to give you some guidance about mortgage modifications or refinancing. At the very least, we can refer you to a trusted mortgage professional. We are located at 2204 18th Ave in Longmont, Colorado.

Read your Deed of Trust. You should have received a copy of this document when you bought your home. It goes into detail about your obligations and the ramifications of not meeting those obligations. Call us if you need help reading this long document. We can also help you locate a copy of your Deed of Trust on file with the county.

Much of the time, home buyers don’t read these documents completely at the closing table because they are so excited to get the keys to their new homes. Take the time to read them now so you know exactly what to expect when that rate adjusts. Mortgage companies are starting to negotiate!
