Why You Need a Realtor Who Specializes In Seller Representation To Sell Your Home

Las Vegas, NV - May 9, 2013 - (RealEstateRama) -- There are many Realtors out there. Who will do the best job for you? Representing a Seller in a real estate transaction involves much more than negotiating the highest sale price. Did you know that most real estate contracts are designed to protect the rights of a Buyer, NOT the Seller? Each state uses a different real estate contract, and each contract contains numerous safeguards allowing Buyers’ the ability to exit the contract without penalty. For example, in a Nevada Real Estate Contract, unless otherwise amended, the contract is contingent upon the Buyer’s ability to qualify for financing.

Can I Short Sale My Home and Buy It Back?

Las Vegas, NV - April 22, 2013 - (RealEstateRama) -- One of the most common questions we're asked is, "Can I stay in my home after the short sale is complete?" Many Realtors and even some Attorneys claim they can sell your home to an investor (i.e. Cash Buyer, Hedge Fund Buyer, Non-Profit Buyer etc.) who will allow you to "lease back" your home as "tenants" after the short sale is finalized...or possibly "Buy It Back" after three years. Who wouldn't want to take advantage of an opportunity like this? Staying in your home would avoid the inconvenience of moving, costly moving expenses, etc. This seems like an attractive solution, however, is it really an option? Is there a catch?

Short Sale in 2013 To Avoid a Large Tax Bill

Las Vegas, NV - January 14, 2012 - (RealEstateRama) -- As part of the fiscal cliff deal, the Mortgage Debt Forgiveness Act of 2007 has been extended for one more year and will now expire on December 31, 2013. The relief act's extension was seen as vital to the recovering housing market. Under normal circumstances, debt forgiven as a result of a short sale or mortgage modification would count as income for tax purposes. For instance, if somebody owes $250,000 on their mortgage and their lender agrees to a $200,000 short sale, $50,000 in debt is forgiven. This would have been taxable without an extension of the law.
