Fairfield CT 06824 Homes for Sale MORTGAGE DEBT RELIEF - EXPIRES

Fairfield CT 06824 Homes for Sale




Homes for Sale Fairfield CT 06825




We all know that our economy has been in distress.     Are you facing stress or hardships?     Feel lost and don’t know what you’re going to do? If you lost your job, or simply cannot afford to make your monthly mortgage payments, there may be relief.


66 Homes for sale in Fairfield , CT were foreclosed since June of 2007.    20 of those homes for sale were foreclosed on in the last year.    Do not become a statistic, save yourself the grief of large amounts of debt.      You can be protected.





If you have a home for sale and are not aware of the benefits you may be eligible, I do recommend you educate yourself, and educate yourself immediately.

The Mortgage Relief Act was passed in 2007 when President Bush was in office.    It is scheduled to expire the end of this year.  That’s right - you have less than a half a year.

The Mortgage Relief Act may save you from having to pay taxes on the money you owe.

How does this work?

I first would advise that  you find yourself a Realtor that you trust, to help you navigate through this process and help you understand it further.     If you are in the Fairfield , CT area with a home for sale, and have any questions, you should contact me at  (203)  858-4853.

When you sell your home in a short sale, your lender will waive your deficiency, or debt. That means that the bank would forgive and cancel the debt you owe them.    At the end of the year, you would have to claim that money as income.   The Mortgage Relief Act has been put into place to help avoid paying taxes on income you MUST claim.

If approved, you and the IRS will be given a 1099c (cancellation of debt)

So, if you are "underwater", and live in the Fairfield , CT area with a home for sale. Please feel free to contact me.

This is a quite a long complicated process and it takes a long time (6-9 months from when an offer is received on your listing.) 

I don’t want to frighten any sellers but this Act is due to EXPIRE on December 31st 2012.

After this year, short sales/ foreclosures will be taxable in your income taxes.      Although your lender may allow you to forgive/ cancel the debt owed,  it will be taxed.

So if you are "drowning," please do yourself the favor and get educated.      Information is power.      See if this is right for you.

Dagny:  Great information you offer here!  The modern-day potential home buyer AND present homeowner simply must be educated as to ALL the options that are available to them.  Resources are everywhere on the internet.  You just proved that with your blog post.  Local advice and assistance, in this situation, is the best candidate for that education and help.  In Fairfield CT, and the surrounding area, Dagny Eason is that local advocate that the public should be seeking out ... she cares and has the facts ...

Dagny - Great information on the Mortgage Debt Relief Act in Fairfield, CT. This could potentially save buyer's money on taxes they may owe, but  December 31st will be here before you know it so it's time to act (pun intended, lol) and call Dagny Eason of Dagny's Real Estate!
