A short sale in real estate is not always a pleasant transaction.
SoCal Superior Properties can negotiate relocation assistance
There are many ways to lose a home but signing away ownership in a manner that destroys credit, embarrasses the family and strips an owner of dignity is one of the hardest. For owners who can no longer afford to keep mortgage payments current, there are alternatives to bankruptcy or foreclosure proceedings. One of those options is called a "short sale."
When lenders agree to do a short sale in real estate, it means the lender is accepting less than the total amount due. Not all lenders will accept short sales or discounted payoffs, especially if it would make more financial sense to foreclose; moreover, not all sellers nor all properties qualify for short sales.
SoCal Superior Properties is advised by a licensed Broker, Financial Advisor & Legal panel. Always consult a CPA for personal tax consequences. There are certain conditions pursuant to the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act of 2007. Be Aware the I.R.S. could consider debt forgiveness as income, and there is no guarantee that a lender who accepts a short sale will not legally pursue a borrower for the difference between the amount owed and the amount paid. In some states, this amount is known as a deficiency. It is very IMPORTANT to determine whether your loan qualifies for a deficiency judgment or claim as these laws are changing daily.
