San Diego Short Sale Process-My Credit With A Short Sale vs Foreclosure

San Diego Short Sale Process

So, what about my credit after I do a short sale my San Diego home?

What would be worse on your credit score, a short sale or foreclosure? In many cases, there can be a real benefit to doing a short sale on your San Diego home instead of a foreclosure. Both will have a bad effect on your credit score, but most credit experts agree that a short sale is less damaging than a foreclosure. Plus it may be easier to get a home loan in the future with a short sale.

If you are not sure how long it will take to get back to a positive equity position in your San Diego home, check out our website www.ShortOrStaySanDiego.com.  Or, call San Diego short sale specialist Gary Kent at 858-457-5368 for a quick confidential analysis of your situation.

What is worse on your credit, Short Sale or Foreclosure?

The key credit element that most lenders use is the FICO score. Designed by the Fair Issacs company, this is a complex score based on all of your credit history, credit diversity, credit balances vs. available credit. In short, they are using it to predict how likely you are to go 90 days late. By definition, the California foreclosure process takes longer than 90 days so automatically you will prove the worst to Fair Isaacs and your score will reflect it.

San Diego Short Sale Process-Avoid Taxes on your San Diego Short Sale

San Diego Short Sale Process

Act Quick To Avoid TAXES

The Mortgage Debt Forgiveness Act of 2007 is set to expire on December 31st, 2012. Here’s what this act addresses… When you owe money and don’t have to pay it back, that’s called forgiven or cancelled debt. The IRS treats this cancelled debt as taxable ordinary income. Prior to the Act, many San Diego home owners who did short sales or lost their homes to foreclosure were actually forced to pay taxes on this “ordinary income.” This was considered punitive and unfair, so the Act was passed and changed the rules, making most homeowners exempt from taxes due on a short sale or foreclosure.

Unfortunately, the Act expires 12/31/12. And because short sales often take months to complete, anyone considering a short sale would be wise to start immediately so they can avoid paying taxes on their cancelled debt. There is the possibility that the act will be extended, but as of this writing, I’m not aware of a serious effort to do so.

San Diego Short Sale Process Question-Is Your Bank Laughing At You?

San Diego Short Sale Process

Is Your Bank Laughing At You?

As a San Diego home owner, does it feel like your bank is laughing at you? It sort of does, doesn’t it? I mean when you compare your mortgage payment to the amount it would cost to rent the same home… YIKES! And what about when you owe more than it is worth? The bank knows that you have no equity and they are hoping to keep you paying.

Even if the bank isn't laughing at you, some San Diego home owners face a dilemma. What do I do when I owe more on my house than it is worth? What are my options? Should I try a loan modification? Will the bank work with me? What is my tax exposure if I do a short sale on my San Diego home? What is the short sale process? Will the bank approve my short sale?

Here are three steps to learn more about the San Diego Short Sale Process:

1. Go to our website www.ShortOrStaySanDiego.com to see how long you will have to pay on your San Diego home before it is worth more than what you owe.

San Diego Short Sale Process- How long before I have equity again?

San Diego Short Sale Process

How many years until I have equity in my San Diego home?

San Diego short sale process duplexMany San Diego home owners have been hard hit with the down turn in home prices. Even though the San Diego real estate market is very strong now, it may be years before some San Diego home owners have equity in their homes.

For years in San Diego real estate, we were used to always having positive equity. Since the housing recession some San Diego home owners have found that they are "underwater" (they owe more to their lenders than the home will sell for in today's market.

Have you ever figured out… just how far “underwater” your San Diego home is and how long it will take to start having some positive equity? The easiest way is to check out short sale expert Gary Kent's San Diego website www.ShortOrStaySanDiego.com. With just a little information, Gary's website will generate a report that estimates the value of your current San Diego home  compared to the amount you input that you owe. Then we'll email you a report that outlines an estimate of how long it might take to get "above water."

For some San Diego home owners considering the bank short sale process, this is a good place to start, or, call San Diego short sale specialist Gary Kent at 858-457-5368 for a quick confidential analysis of your situation.

La Jolla Short Sale Report for La Jolla CA 92037 Short Sales

La Jolla Short Sale Report

La Jolla CA 92037

La Jolla Short Sale Home Image - SANDICOR The upscale San Diego community of La Jolla may be one of the new homes of Republican candidate Mitt Romney but it is not exempt from the bank short sale process. La Jolla short sale specialist Gary Kent 858-457-5368 reports that according to the San Diego MLS system,  for the first eight months of 2012 there were a total of 45 homes that were short sales in the La Jolla zip code of 92037.

A short sale occurs when a homeowner owes more than the market value on their home and hires a short sale expert to sell it for them. According to Gary Kent, this is when the real work starts. "We’ve closed over 220 bank short sales and we know that Bank of America, Chase, Wells Fargo and Citi bank each have their own short sale process. We start by determining the value of their La Jolla home. Then we work with the home owner to accumulate the various financial documents that the short sale lender will require. Then we actively market their La Jolla home to find a well-qualified (and patient) home buyer.

The short sale process after the offer has been accepted is the toughest part and that requires constant attention to the details of a normal escrow while adding the complexities of negotiating with one or more bank short sale departments."  



Here are some of the key statistics for La Jolla short sales from January 1 to August 3 2012.*

Total La Jolla Short Sales 45 La Jolla Homes (SFR) 22 Condos (Attached) 23
Highest Price: $2,290,000 6 bedroom / 6 bath 5,319 s.f. SFR home
Lowest Price $170,000 1 bedroom / 1 bath 623 s.f. condo
Average $829,456
Median $717,500

San Diego Short Sale Process

Do you owe too much to sell your San Diego Home?

San Diego home owners are facing some tough questions, such as, what to do if you owe more than your San Diego Home is worth?

After all, the payment made sense when they bought it and they don't have a pressing need to sell their San Diego home.

What if you don’t have that time? Perhaps you are facing a hardship such as death, divorce or a job transfer. Then you may want to consider meeting with San Diego Short Sale Specialist Gary Kent to discuss your short sale options. Even if your hardship is not a dire as death, divorce or a job transfer call Gary Kent at 858-457-5368 to discuss your short sale options with a real estate agent who is a bank short sale expert for a quick confidential analysis of your situation.
