Among the changes, borrowers who are struggling because of debt beyond their mortgage will be eligible for a secondary evaluation with more flexible debt-to-income criteria, and eligibility will be extended to investor-owned homes that are used as rental properties.

Is 2012 the best year to Short Sale? - 01/16/12 08:01 PM
If you are struggling with the question of whether or not to walk away from your "underwater" home, you may want to decide before the upcoming year. If you're trying to put off a short sale or foreclosure, you just may want it to come sooner than later. Come January 2013, the amount a lender forgives in either a short sale or foreclosure will become taxable on federal income taxes. So if a house sold $50,000 short of what is owed on the mortgage, then the selling homeowners will owe federal income taxes on that $50,000. Homeowners would owe $12,500 in (1 comments)

"Strategic Default"??? - 01/10/12 04:00 PM
With many homeowners currently underwater with their mortgages, many are turning to a "Strategic Default" in these hard economic times. A Strategic Default is when a homeowner owes more on their mortgage than the property is currently worth, and they simply turn over the keys to the home and walk away. This move, while difficult economically by causing blemishes on credit reports etc., is also posing ethical questions. Is it morally wrong to pack up and leave a home one still owes money on? "Guilt and morality are one side, and objective financial analysis are on the other side," said David (4 comments)
