Lenders are working with many homeowners by cooperating in a short sale on their property. A short sale is where the lender is willing to allow a sale and accept less than what is owed to them. Why would they do this? In the long run, financially this is a sound decision because a short sale costs the lender less money than a foreclosure. So if you qualify for a short sale, this may be the step you take before you let your house go into foreclosure. The good news in light of the alternative.
A foreclosure is too costly to your credit, job, and checkbook! Should your property go into foreclosure, your credit will be negatively impacted more than a short sale and it takes much longer to establish a good credit rating and longer to be able to purchase a home again. Your job may be in jeopardy due to a foreclosure if your company has any government contracts, is involved in financial planning or a myriad of other reasons.

You may also have to pay the taxes on the deficiency that the bank absorbs at your tax rate. There has been legislation to eliminate this “phantom income’ however; there are conditions that must be met to qualify. Consider the lender selling your home at auction for $100,000 less than is owed on the home (this is a common loss for a lender to absorb in AZ). If you are in a 20% tax bracket you will owe the IRS $20,000 for letting your home go into foreclosure. If you have a second mortgage on the home, that lender will most likely file a lawsuit for its losses as well. Often a short sale specialist can negotiate with the lender(s) to release you from ALL future financial liability as well as the tax liability.
