Underwater Homeowners Breathe a Sigh of Relief as Congress Renews Mortgage Debt Relief Act!

On January 1, 2013, Congress passed an extension of the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act. This extension of this act, which has saved homeowners more than $1 billion dollars in taxes[1], is great news for struggling homeowners nationwide.

The Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act was originally passed in 2007 to aid the millions of homeowners who suddenly found themselves in danger of losing their homes to foreclosure following the housing market crash.

Under the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act, any debt forgiven in a short sale, foreclosure, or loan modification, is exempt from federal taxes on primary residences. For homeowners facing foreclosure, this exemption saves them from paying thousands, or even tens of thousands, in taxes on top of losing their homes.

Now for another year, homeowners can take advantage of this exemption and avoid foreclosure without the fear of an impossible tax liability.

As a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE), I am specially trained to help homeowners escape the threat of foreclosure. If you or someone you know is facing foreclosure, contact me for a private consultation. I can help find a solution.

" Marina helped my family out during a very difficult and confusing transition. My dream home had turned into a nightmare.  Marina took me by the hand and led me out of the mortgage mess I was in.  Furthermore Marina was able to sell that property within a few months giving us a chance to start from new.  Marina advised me to find a CPA for my taxes instead of filing them myself.  I am now in that process of finding a CPA to help me with my short sale issue. Anyone out there looking to sell their home or buy a new property I would recommend calling Marina. "

Marina Hauser Earns Real Estate, Short Sale Designation to Help Homeowners in Danger of Foreclosure - Boston

Boston, MA – April 11, 2012 – Marina Hauser, Owner of South Shore Home Solutions, LLC in Boston, MA has earned the prestigious Certified Distressed Property Expert® (CDPE) designation, having completed extensive training in foreclosure avoidance, with a particular emphasis on short sales. At a time when millions of homeowners are struggling with the possibility of foreclosure, the skills and education amassed by Hauser will help benefit Massachusetts residents and communities.

Short sales allow the distressed homeowner to repay the mortgage at the price that the home sells for, even if it is lower than what is owed on the property. With plummeting property values, this can save many people from foreclosure and even bankruptcy. More and more lenders are willing to consider short sales because they are much less costly than foreclosures.

Today, more than 13 percent of homeowners are delinquent on their mortgage or in the foreclosure process. This is occurring across all price ranges, and the fastest-growing category of homes in foreclosure is the luxury home market.

“The CDPE designation has been invaluable as I work with homeowners and lenders on complicated short sales,” said Hauser. “It is so rewarding to be able to help families save their homes from foreclosure.”
