Short Sale Debt Forgiveness extended!

By Frank Valente | January 3, 2013

Many have been wondering  about will the  Short  Sale Debt Forgiveness act be  extended through 2014? .  Will the current law be extended or changed?  For the past several weeks are “Leadership in DC” has been locked in a major battle over the so called “Fiscal Cliff”.  Prior to that, most of our ‘leadership” was concerned about being re-elected. Short Sale Debt Forgiveness is extended! The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 was passed late in the evening on January 1st and is expected to be signed by President Obama.  While much of this contentious Bill was disappointing to all and, in effect, kicked the can down the road for more negotiations in the months to come,  the act is a blessing for  blessing for upside-down homeowners. Today I personally  called Congressman Tom McClintock’s office  (His office covers a large part of south Placer county)  and received the following information…… “When a homeowner experiences a debt reduction through mortgage principal forgiveness – such as through short sale, foreclosure, or even loan modification – the amount of debt forgiven is considered taxable income. In 2007, Congress passed the 2007 Debt Forgiveness Relief Act which exempted up to $2 million of debt forgiven on…

Short Sale Debt Foregiveness 2013

By Frank Valente | November 28, 2012

Short Sale Debt Foregiveness  2013?  A key tax provision set to expire at the end of the year could trip up the Obama administration’s push to have banks forgive mortgage debt more often for borrowers who are underwater. Five years ago, Congress passed a law, the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act, that would prevent households from having to treating certain types of forgiven mortgage debt as taxable income. If the provision expires as scheduled on Dec. 31, it could throw a wrench not only into efforts to trim loan balances for underwater borrowers, but also for short sales, where banks allow homeowners to sell their properties at a loss. How does the relief provision work? Without the measure, a homeowner who owes $300,000 on his mortgage and sells his house for $250,000 would owe taxes on the $50,000 balance that’s forgiven, because it would be considered income by the Internal Revenue Service. This could take away some of the incentive for homeowners to seek a short sale. Will the relief provision get extended? Will there be Short Sale Debt Foregiveness for 2013?  Earlier this month, the Senate Finance Committee passed a one-year extension, as part of a broader tax package,…

Placer County Real Estate – Median Home Price Up 19% in October Over 2011…Really????

By Frank Valente | November 17, 2012

PLACER COUNTY REAL ESTATE UPDATE! Median prices for homes sold in the Sacramento region rose by double digits in October compared with the same month a year before which was recently reported by DataQuick. For Sacramento and Placer counties, it was the largest year-over-year price increase since the height of the housing bubble in late 2005, according to data supplied by the San Diego-based DataQuick. Sacramento’s median home price rose by more than 16 percent from $155,000 in October 2011 to $180,000 in October 2012. Placer County’s median home price rose by nearly 19 percent during the same period, going from $252,500 in October 2011 to $300,000 last month, DataQuick said. But Why? What is causing this change to Placer county real estate?  This increase in median prices is simply an example of the basic laws of Supply and Demand. At this time we have a very low inventory of homes on the market. Actually we have less than a 45 day supply of homes.  This means that if no other home came on the market, then our region would be out of re-sale homes in less than 45 days!  If you have a 3-6 month supply you have a…

Short Sale Debt Forgiveness

By Frank Valente | October 30, 2012
how to price your home to sell

Short Sale Debt Forgiveness Information Here are a couple common questions and answers on Short Sale Debt Forgiveness What is Cancellation of Debt? If you borrow money from a commercial lender and the lender later cancels or forgives the debt, in other words Short Sale Debt Forgiveness, you may have to include the cancelled amount in income for tax purposes, depending on the circumstances. When you borrowed the money you were not required to include the loan proceeds in income because you had an obligation to repay the lender. When that obligation is forgiven, the amount you received as loan proceeds is normally reportable as income because you no longer have an obligation to repay. Here’s a very simplified example. You borrow $10,000 and default on the loan after paying back $2,000. If the lender is unable to collect the remaining debt from you, there is a cancellation of debt of $8,000, which generally is taxable income to you. Is Cancellation of Debt income always taxable? Not always. There are some exceptions. The most common situations when cancellation of debt income is not taxable involve: Qualified principal residence indebtedness: Bankruptcy: Debts discharged through bankruptcy are not considered taxable income. Insolvency: If…

Short Sale Debt Forgiveness… Will homeowners get relief?

By Frank Valente | October 30, 2012

Short Sale Debt Forgiveness…?????  Are you considering doing a short sale?  Have you exhausted the possibilities of a loan modification? One major concern for most homeowners is the tax consequences of doing a Short Sale. By definition if you owe a debt to someone else and they cancel or forgive that debt, the canceled amount may be taxable. The Mortgage Debt Relief Act of 2007 generally allows taxpayers to exclude income from the discharge of debt on their principal residence. Debt reduced through mortgage restructuring, as well as mortgage debt forgiven in connection with a foreclosure, qualifies for the relief. This provision applies to debt forgiven in calendar years 2007 through 2012. Up to $2 million of forgiven debt is eligible for this exclusion ($1 million if married filing separately). The exclusion does not apply if the discharge is due to services performed for the lender or any other reason not directly related to a decline in the home’s value or the taxpayer’s financial condition. This law expires DECEMBER 31, 2012!!!! What will  happen to Short Sale Debt Forgiveness? The good news is that the law is expected to be extended.  However, I think all consumers should be informed of…

Real Estate Housing Report for Placer County, October 2012

By Frank Valente | October 27, 2012

Home prices continue to rise risen!!!! This is truly historic numbers for our real estate housing report. In Sacramento county we have seen a 10.5% price increase in home values compared to October 2011(over 12 months ago). Placer county has seen a 7.3% rise in home values over the same 12 month period.  This rise is due to the extremely low inventory of homes available to buyers. In Sacramento, Placer and El Dorado counties, there is now less than a 45 day supply of resale homes.  In a normal or balanced market, we look to have a 3-66 month supply of homes for sale   Real Estate Housing Report!! Foreclosures are down! We have also seen a change in the make up of the Real estate market for areas of Placer, Sacramento, and El Dorado counties. The percentage of non distressed sales is up from 39% of the resale market to now 50% of the real estate housing market.  In other words, at least half the sales are not short sales and not foreclosures!  At least 50% of the sales, are back to traditional real estate sales, ie, one family sells to another family!!!! Why is this trend? And why is this trend going to continue?  The simply…

“Frank helped me find a perfect house for me and my family and it was a very simple, easy process. He followed up often, we talked on the phone or via email. He made sure that the underwriter was doing everything on time so we could move in on time.”

“They were super helpful and walked me through purchasing my first home and were always available, always responsive which made what could have been a really intimidating process very easy, pain-free, and smooth. I asked him a ton of really dumb questions because as a first-time buyer I didn’t know what I didn’t know and rather than pointing me to the answer he went the extra mile and got all of the detailed information for me.”

“We were very happy with it. They advised us that we were asking too much and so we lowered it which they didn’t think was enough yet, but we wanted to try it. So we tried it for several months and it didn’t work so we lowered it again and got a bite. They were honest with us and Mary was very personable and she showed us many homes. We are in our eighties and we had some restrictions at the time so they were always very careful to see that they didn’t take me any place that I couldn’t get around. They have become very dear friends.”
