2013 "fiscal cliff"Stop the Sheriff Sale!

Senate 'Cliff' Bill Retains Mortgage Cancellation Relief - Mortgage Debt Relief Act Extended for Another Year

A number of what lawmakers call extenders are in the bill. Extenders keep in place expiring tax provisions. Of most interest to real estate, the bill would extend mortgage cancellation relief for home owners or sellers who have a portion of their mortgage debt forgiven by their lender, typically in a short sale or foreclosure sale for sellers and in a modification for owners. Without the extension, any debt forgiven would be taxable, which, for underwater households, represents a financial burden.

You Have Options

Did you know the bank may consider allowing us to sell your home for less then you owe?

Normally, debt forgiveness results in taxable income. But under the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act of 2007, enacted Dec. 20, taxpayers may exclude debt forgiven on their principal residence if the balance of their loan was less than $2 million. The limit is $1 million for a married person filing a separate return. Details are on Form 982 and its instructions, available now on

Here Are Some Things You Should Know

  • You may get absolutely nothing from a foreclosure sale, even if you have equity. The bank holding your mortgage only cares about getting back the money they are owed.
  • Beware of scams. Solutions that sound too simple or too good to be true usually are. If you are selling your home without professional guidance, beware of buyers who try to rush you through the process.
  • Your lender does not want your house.

What is a short sale?

A short sale is a sale of real estate in which the sale proceeds fall short of the balance owed on the property's loan. It often occurs when a borrower cannot pay the mortgage loan on their property, but the lender decides that selling the property at a moderate loss is better than pressing the borrower. Both parties consent to the short sale process, because it allows them to avoid foreclosure, which involves hefty fees for the bank and poorer credit report outcomes for the borrowers.

Short sales are negotiated by a Real Estate Agent whose fees are paid out of the proceeds not by you, the seller.
