If you are looking for a great deal on a home, then considering a short sale in West Valley is the way to go. But you may be asking yourself, " What is a short sale?" A short sale means that the seller's lender is accepting a discounted payoff to an existing mortgage. Lenders agree to a short sale and take a moderate loss in order to avoid going into foreclosure which is more costly, and since the proceeds from the sale of the home fall short of the principle, it is referred to as a short sale. That is why they are marked down because lenders are losing money the longer the home is vacant, so buying a short sale in West Valley can really be a great deal.

There are many common ways of getting extra money from your home such as renting out an extra room or selling some of your clutter. But what about using your home exterior for advertising? Offering your home as a location for magazine or film shoots? Or even renting out your driveway? These are some of the creative ways homeowners are pulling extra cash from their home.

In many situations, when you have a debt cancelled or forgiven, it is considered income and can be taxable. When you short sale your home, the amount of debt forgiven can be quite substantial. Because most Short Sales are the result of hardship, it would be very difficult to meet this extra tax burden. Thankfully, the Mortgage Debt Relief Act of 2007 was established to prevent this.

The Debt Relief act allows those who have had to short sale their home, to exclude the debt forgiven from their income. This requires that the short sale be on the seller's principal residence. Debt can also be reduced through mortgage restructuring or loan modification. This debt forgiveness also qualifies under the Debt Relief act to be excluded from income.

How does a short sale or foreclosure affect me and my credit?

That is the question that many people are asking. Times are statistically tough for many during this recession and people want to know what their options are and what they need to do. Im not a lawyer but this is what I am seeing in the loan world and in the credit arena.
