Selling your property as a Short Sale

There are numerous questions you may have when it comes to selling your home as a “short sale”. First and foremost, a short sale refers to a property with a mortgage, where the mortgage amount exceeds the proceeds from it’s sale. Because the real estate market has been hit so dramatically over the past several years, many sellers are in the position where they must “short sell” their home because they no longer have any equity in the property. There are a number of advantages and disadvantages both when it comes to short sales. As with any major financial decision, the decision is ultimately yours, but your consultant at the Advani Real Estate Group can assist you in making an informed decision.

1) Mortgage Debt is forgiven by your lender and IRS (if the property is owner occupied)
2) Save your Credit
3) Avoid Foreclosure!

1) May have tax implications
