Scottsdale Short Sale Newsflash

Scottsdale Short Sale Newsflash!

Many Scottsdale homeowners facing foreclosure mistakenly believe that they have "All the Time in the World" to make a decision and take action.



The reality is that there are 24 short months to complete a Scottsdale Short Sale - as in list, sell and close escrow, before Uncle Sam - aka the IRS - will tax you for the privilege!

In fact - they will tax you if your property goes to foreclosure after that time!

The Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act expires on December 31st, 2012.

It's time to evaluate your situation, and decide whether your best option to avoid foreclosure in Scottsdale is by doing a Scottsdale Short Sale.
