Just last month we noted that the number of foreclosures in Crow Canyon Country Club had tripled over the previous month. Today, we’ll look at foreclosure and short sale figures in Crow Canyon Country Club – we’ll be following up in a day or so on how short sales and foreclosures impact normal home sales.

Despite the name, Short Sales are not always a short process! Nor is it always an easy or smooth process, even in Danville CA where we are weathering the storm better than many communities. A short sale can be a frustrating experience for both the seller and the buyer. One of the mitigating dynamics in regards to the frustration factor is the number of lenders involved with the property.

Short Sales Potential Positives

  • Eliminates negative equity burden
  • May qualify for a new mortgage sooner than with a foreclosure or bankruptcy on their credit file
  • Repair finances by reducing housing payments

Short Sales Potential Negatives

  • A tarnished credit history and score
  • Diminished financing options on real estate for a minimum of two years
  • Lenders may pursue the so-called deficiency balance after the sale (** An experienced short sale agent can usually get this waived and in certain government sponsored programs like HAFA they can’t pursue a deficiency)
  • The approval process can be time-consuming and frustrating

Part of the educational process should be consulting your accountant and attorney. While many Realtors have great experience and knowledge of the short sale process, few are licensed to give financial or legal advice on the implications of a short sale.

Income Tax Consequences:

California state income tax on forgiven debt resulting from a short sale, foreclosure, or loan modification will no longer be imposed on homeowners in California. Senate Bill 401 makes California’s tax treatment of mortgage debt relief income the same as federal law. Be advised, however, that only the debt stemming from the loan secured by a “qualified principal residence,” will be exempt from both federal and state income tax consequences. While the federal exemption amount is up to $2 million, the California exemption is up to $800,000 and forgiven debt up to $500,000.

Basic Qualifications for a Short Sale:

  • The Home’s Market Value Has Dropped
  • The Mortgage is in or Near Default Status
  • The Seller Has Fallen on Hard Times
  • The Seller Has Limited Assets
