Erie, Colorado is a city steeped in history. It started out as a coal mining town and was home to the first commercial coal mine in Weld County. Erie has gone through several boom and bust cycles, but is currently thriving as a fantastic suburb with easy access to both Boulder and Denver.
Erie has recently been commended as one the safest cities to live in in the state of Colorado and that, along with a fantastic school system, has made homes for sale in Erie hard to come by. A Realtor with close eyes on the market and a willingness to quickly see homes and make an offer is a must. Still, there are some great deals to be found on real estate here and a variety of styles of single family homes to choose from.
A boom of new home development is currently ongoing in Erie with over 8,000 homes scheduled to be completed in the next few years. Notable developments include Collier's Hill, Erie Highlands, Flatiron Meadows, and the up and coming Compass development. Most new homes for sale are starting at around the $350,000 price point with fully configured options easily into the $400s.
Another great aspect of Erie is its state of the art community center which includes an indoor swimming pool, climbing wall, basketball courts, numerous classes and a full gym. Outside are several playgrounds for your children, baseball fields, and a short walk to the library.
Erie's recent growth is starting to attract new businesses as well. Just recently King Soopers announced they will be opening a new mega store in Erie and another smaller grocer is rumored to be in the process of putting a store closer to the center of town.
