Another Good Reason To Sell - More Tax Talk!

by Pedal To Properties

Just sold or looking to sell?  Here's some good news:

  • Up to $250,000 in sales gain ($500,000 if married filing jointly) is Tax-Free as long as the homeowner owned the property for 2 years and lived in the home for 2 of the 5 years prior to selling.


Our Professional Team can assist you with all of your questions if you are thinking of selling.  For a free market analysis or to discuss your plans to sell, contact a Pedal To Properties agent for expert advice!

Oh...No - NOT the Tax Bill!

by Pedal To Properties

Owning a home IS part of "The American Dream"!  Then, the tax bill arrives...

This year marks the 12th year in our current home.  I remember getting our very first tax bill and not knowing what to think or do.  Thankfully the mortgage company was handling it!  Today I am grateful to be a homeowner and take full advantage of all the tax incentives allowed.  Owning a home has so many rewards!

With the 2011 Boulder County property tax bills arriving in the mail this week, I thought I would share some good news:

  • You can deduct many home related expenses on your personal taxes including:
    • Mortgage Interest (on up to $1M home mortgage debt on a 1st or 2nd home)
    • Interest on Home Equity Debt (on up to $100,000 of home equity debt)
    • Real Estate Taxes - The bill that you just received!

Tamales A Hit! - At Pedal To Properties Winter Bike To Work Day!

by Pedal To Properties

The 2nd Annual Tamales Station at Pedal To Properties was a hit again this year at the Boulder Winter Bike To Work Day!  This morning, we had over 70 people stop by and enjoy these tasty tamales and warm up with hot cocoa.  Despite yesterday's snow and high wind reports, the weather was great and fearless bikers came out for another great cause.


Plan on stopping by the Pedal To Properties Summer Bike To Work Day station this coming June for our Annual Fruit Smoothies.  For some fun games, music and yummy smoothies, be sure to put us on your summer route.

That's all for now,
