Why Would My Banks Agree To Short Sale MY Home?

  • When lenders agree to do a short sale in real estate, it means the lender is accepting less than the total amount due. Why they allow you to short sell? To foreclosure a home is a very costly event. The average short sale nets a bank 24% more than they would have gotten in a foreclosure.

The Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act:

When completing Short Sales you’re obviously owing more than your home is currently worth. Therefore, there’s a negative difference between what you actually owed on your mortgage and what your home will sell for – we’ll call it a dividend. For example: You owe $200,000 on your mortgage and your home sells for $150,000 – the dividend is $50,000.

After successfully completing your short sales, you can expect to receive a 1099 from your former mortgage company classifying that $50,000 dividend as taxable income for the year in question.

Here’s the good news: As a result of the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act, that dividend is not currently taxable for most homeowners. The act currently extends through December 31st, 2012.

As mentioned, the provision doesn’t apply to all homeowners. For instance, if the property isn’t your primary residence, it’s possible that you’d be taxed on the difference. Additionally, the maximum amount you can treat as qualified principal residence indebtedness is $2 million ($1 million if married filing separately for the tax year), at the time the loan was forgiven.

What Is A Short Sale?

A Short Sale is a real estate that sells for less than the balance owing on its mortgage. If there is a mortgage balance that is greater than the market value of the home, that property is a short sale. Basically, a bank accepts less than what is owed to them when a home is sold.
