The VA Loan Limits in Colorado for the most part follow the conforming loan limits, which mean a maximum loan amount of $417,000.  Unlikely FHA loans, the VA loan limit does include the VA Funding Fee, so that is an important thing to keep in mind.  However, in some counties, the VA Loan Limits in Colorado are higher.  For example, in Boulder County, the limit is $443,750 in 2013.  Below is a list of the "high balance" VA counties in Colorado: —  Boulder  $443,750 —  Lake $712,500 —  Pitkin  $1,094,625 —  Routt  $550,000 —  San Miguel   $1,094,625 —  Summit  $667,500 So if your VA eligibility only allows you to borrow up to $417,000, how can you borrow above $417,000 on a Colorado VA Loan?  I explain that in the short video below! We have been proudly serving Veterans in Colorado for ov...

Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse is located at 1770 13th St., Boulder, CO 80302. It is nestled against the Rocky Mountain Foothills in Boulder Colorado. Sitting alongside Boulder Creek in Central Park, the Teahouse is considered one of Boulder’s most attractive and popular tourist attractions, as well as being a local favorite for great food, tea, and atmosphere. Completely build by hand without the use of any power tools, the Teahouse was constructed in Dushanbe, Tajikistan as a gift to their sister city, Boulder. It was disassembled, crated up, and sent halfway around the world to be rebuilt in Boulder as a symbol of friendship and cultural exploration.
