You need to contact an attorney and a CPA. This is not in the scope of what real estate agents can answer.

You need to consult your tax advisor and your attorney to get specifics regarding the repercussions of a foreclosure on an investment property as well as their recommendations.

Please talk to an experieced Real Estate Consultant to verify the current value of that property and value projections based on current market activity. There are lots of buyers out there nothwithstanding all the negative news the media lives for!

You possibly can rent the property and hold on to it until the market turns. At that point, you can go ahead and sell outright or consider a 1031 tax deferred exchange. The rental market in San Diego is very healthy as many people who have lost their homes, are moving into rentals. Feel free to contact me at your covenience.

Instead of foreclosing, try to do a short sale, atleast you will get a chance to negotiate the terms of any repayments after the sale of your property. You need to contact a local real estate agent who is experienced in short sale to list your property and consult your cpa for any tax implications.

You should consult a real estate attorney regarding your question. Foreclosure on a non-owner occupied property or investment is very different and is much to complex to answer in this forum.

I have provided a link to the Lawyer Referral Service sponsored by the North County Bar Association. They offer a free 30 minute consultation.
