Erie Colorado Homes for sale in Boulder County

The Town of Erie Colorado is unique in the fact that it lies in two separate counties.  West of County Line Road lies the Boulder County section of Erie Colorado. To the east of County Line Road, lies the Weld County section of the Town of Erie.   The homes on the Boulder County side of Erie, are not automatically in the Boulder Valley Schools however.  In fact, the majority of homes in the Boulder County side of Erie are still in the St. Vrain Schools.  Only a handful of Erie neighborhoods actually lie in both Boulder County, and the Boulder Valley School District. 

Contrary to popular misconception, Erie homes on the Boulder County side of town actually have lower property taxes than the homes on the Weld County side.  This is due in part, to the fact the Boulder County enjoys a broader tax base and doesn't have to tax each homeowner quite as heavily as the less populated Weld County. 

The Boulder County side of Erie CO, actually benefits from considerably higher FHA and VA loan limits than does the Weld County section.   FHA borrowers on the Boulder County side can obtain a loan up to $474,950, while borrowers on the Weld County side are limited to FHA loans of $290,950.   This can pose a particular problem in for FHA buyers in the Weld County section, since most homes in Erie CO start around an opening price point of $315,000.

VA borrowers have a slightly better set of options, with Weld County VA limits for $0 Down payment loans capping at $424,100.  Jumbo VA loans requiring a more traditional down payment, may go up to $1,000,000 in Weld County.  VA borrowers in Boulder County can obtain $0 down loans up to $529,000, with VA Jumbo loans to $1 Million.
