¿Cuánto tiempo vive la mayoría de las familias en una casa?
La Asociación nacional de Realtors (NAR por sus siglas en inglés) mantiene datos históricos en muchos aspectos de la propiedad de la vivienda. Uno de esos puntos de datos que ha cambiado radicalmente es la tenencia mediana de una familia en una casa, en otras palabras, cuanto tiempo una familia se queda en una casa antes de mudarse.

A California homeowner whose home was underwater asked her bank to approve a short sale of their home and the bank agreed… but under one condition.  The borrower would have to agree to waive her anti-deficiency protection, which means that she would be responsible to pay the difference between the sales price of the home and what was owed.

 Assembly Bill 1393 (Ch.152) was passed retroactively extending California’s partial conformity to the federal exclusion of income from the discharge of qualified mortgage debt to tax year 2013. Specifically, the bill includes the following:
