Appleseed Home’s history dates back to 1977, when it was founded as an independent real estate office on Staten Island by broker/ owner Henry Setaro. During that time, our organization was the recipient of multiple awards for excellence in productivity on the local, national, and international levels, as well as being recognized for superior customer service.
When housing prices in many parts of the country were booming a couple of years ago, there wasn’t much national attention given to short sales. But with the current subprime debacle and increasing delinquencies, many people are wondering if the short sale process is a way to avoid foreclosure. During a short sale, our mutual goal is to get an offer accepted as quickly as possible by your lender to prevent a foreclosure. The effects of a short sale are far less damaging then a foreclosure or a bankruptcy.
Key point in a short sale:
A Short sale is the difference between what you owe and what the home finally sells for. This was normally considered income, and would have been taxed as such…until the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act was passed in December 2007, and applies to debt forgiven in calendar years 2007 through 2012. as such because this is not considered income, you may not have to pay taxes on it — please consult with your CPA to get the complete and right answer.
