Congratulations to my Buyers, we're Under Contract on their dream home! We knew we'd be competing against multiple offers on this one, but my Buyers were ready and wrote an offer that couldn't be beat! 

An incredibly well done renovation by a skilled owner/builder.


All of the 1940's character was retained while adding modern finishes for a new, fresh look and feel.


340 Vivian is in a beautiful section of the Historic West Side. Just a couple blocks from Sunset Pool and Golf Course, close walking distance to the St. Vrain Greenway paths, a short bike ride from Main St. and a quick hop out to Hover for shopping. 

Congratulations! I can't wait to be neighbors!

Where were you before planting roots down with Old Town Real Estate and The Winning Team Real Estate Group?

After graduating from The University of Colorado with a degree in Business Organizational Management, I became a national sales manager for an outdoor apparel company. My duties involved complete oversight and development of all marketing and sales activities. This included managing a national sales team and direct negotiations with national retailers like REI, The North Face and Eastern Mountain Sports.
 
After leaving the outdoor industry I became a successful regional sales manager within the material handling industry. Sales and account management included direct negotiations with local industry leaders like IBM, Anheuser-Busch Brewery and Hewlett Packard.
 
Lastly, prior to pursuing real estate full-time, I started a local firm called Boulder Executive Housing which soon became one of the largest providers of Short Term Corporate Housing in Boulder County. Accounts included the University of Colorado, Sun Micro Systems, Level 3, IBM, Seagate and Amgen just to name a few. I sold the company in 2004 and dedicated myself to residential real estate sales and never looked back.
 
 
Tell us about your family!

My family includes my beautiful wife, who teaches for the Saint Vrain School District, and my beautiful baby girl to whom my sun rises and sets! We own investment real estate within Boulder County and feel fortunate to call Longmont our home.

 

What are a few of your hobbies?

Pretty much anything that is outdoors and in an alpine setting... Mountain biking, hiking, climbing (and working!)

 

 

What most motivates you to do your best and be a success?

Goal setting and being a dad!

 

What do past clients have to say?

"Thank you, Cory,

For once again helping us to sell our home so quickly! High end homes tend to sit on the market for too long. But, your research and knowledge of the Boulder County real estate market translated to quick (very quick!) success in the sale of both our homes, even in tough market conditions. Your professional approach, work ethic, attention to detail and aggressive follow up with prospects was above all else. You totally exceeded our expectations. We wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell a luxury home in Boulder County. Thank you!"

"Facing family health issues, we decided it was time to downsize by selling our home and purchasing something smaller. Having been involved in real estate sales some years back, I had a good idea of the type help I was wanting from a Realtor. In talking with Cory Dudley and his staff at Old Town Real Estate in Longmont I quickly found him to be very knowledgeable of the local market, but even more important, acutely focused on our expressed needs rather than simply what the market had to offer.

Over a period of several months Cory and I discussed how best to prepare our home for sale.  Cory decided early on to have a professional photographer prepare marketing photographs of our home during the summer months in preparation for the potential of a wintertime sale. Another example of his attention to our unique needs was his suggestion that the initial showing of the home not occur until the first open house to be scheduled a week following entry of the property into the local MLS. That suggestion significantly limited the disruption which frequent showings would have caused us as sellers. Through the marketing efforts of his team that open house was extremely successful leading to multiple offers each at a price somewhat above my expectations. Selling price, however, is not always the key to a successful transaction.  The flexible terms of the sale allowed us to make a smooth transition into a new place which was under construction without a firm completion date.

Cory and his capable staff were similarly focused on the resolution of issues that often arise when purchasing new construction. I found their guidance and management of the documentation requirements to be helpful throughout the process. His entire team was readily available when contacted and quick to communicate with us when appropriate. They kept us well informed of the progress throughout both transactions.

We are pleased to provide Cory and his staff at Old Town Real Estate our strongest recommendation to anyone seeking the services of a “Top Notch Realtor.”

5 Homeowner Deductions YOU Should Know About!

by Cory Dudley

With tax season upon us and the April 18th filing deadline fast

approaching, here are 5 deductions that every  Colorado

homeowner should take advantage of!

 

1. Mortgage Interest Deduction

Your largest write off will be the monthly payment you make on your mortgage. This is because (for most people) the majority of your payment goes toward interest - and guess what? All that interest is tax deductible up to a $1 million loan.

Be sure to think outside the box and include every form of mortgage interest that you pay. Many owners don’t realize that the interest deduction applies to any loan secured by your home. That includes a second mortgage, a line of credit, or a home equity loan. Do you have more than one property? It also applies to a second or vacation home as well as your primary residence!

The best part is that you don’t need to calculate your own deductible mortgage interest. Your lender will send you a copy of Form 1098 at the end of the year that will show the amount of interest you paid. Simply save that form and file it with your tax return!

2. Property Taxes

Property taxes paid to state and local governments can be deducted from your federal taxes in the year in which you paid them. If you pay your property taxes via an escrow through your mortgage lender, your lender will send you a statement, which you can then file with your return. Property taxes are usually paid twice a year. If you are missing statements, contact your state or local taxing authority to get a statement for your records.

3. Loan Points

Homebuyers have the ability to pay points in order to get a loan with a lower interest rate. Most of the time the buyer pays for the points, each of which is equal to 1% of the loan amount. Loan points that meet these IRS qualifications are deductible.

4. Home Office Deductions

Every entrepreneur knows that there are huge financial benefits to working for yourself - and from home. If you use a portion of your home for business purposes you can likely deduct expenses for the use, including but not limited to a percentage of your mortgage payments, of all upkeep and maintenance costs, of home improvements, and of your utilities.

Deductions are usually based on the percentage of your home used solely for business. So, if you use a whole room or part of a room for your business, you'll need to calculate out the percentage used for personal versus business use.

5. Home Improvement Tax Credits

If you made energy efficient improvements to your home, you likely qualify for the Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit. It allows for a tax credit up to 30 percent of the installation costs of the equipment into your home. Qualified equipment includes solar hot water heaters, solar electric equipment, wind turbines, and fuel cell property.
