Dear Loriemi,

If you would like an evaluation of what your property might be worth in San Fernando we can certainly help you with that.
For Tax questions, I must refer you to a qualified Tax Consultant or CPA.

Realtors do not answer LEGAL nor TAX questions.

Well, the market has certainly changed in two years. The place to start would be to have your realtor do a new estimated value and perhaps consider getting a pest inspection done to see what repairs would cost. Then you would have some figures to give your accountant to discuss your options and compare the tax deductions vs costs.

Agree with Guy - this is a question for an accountant.

This is really a question for your CPA, not an agent who knows nothing about your personal financial situation.
