I am going to assume you are new to Trulia and not completely familiar with the rules. This forum, the Q&A forum, is for consumers to ask questions of professionals, or for professionals to ask advice from other professionals. It is NOT for self-promotion. In fact, if the administrators see your question, they will pull it down. I would recommend you remove the question and, instead, write a blog explaining how you help people get their homes sold. Blogging is a great way to promote yourself here on Trulia, I highly recommend it. ... more

Good Evening,

Looking at the historical data available from our multiple listing service, and taking Fontana (Single Family Residences) as a whole your looking at approximately 15-20 days on the market.

Let me know if you want more specific information for your neighborhood.

Hi Mark, we are talking here about 2 different things, because even if the lender approves the short sale the owner was still liable ( before the new law was approved) to pay taxes on the credit or short pay amount given by the lender,
In other words it pertains to the IRS to collect the money on the capital gains (in a form of a %) that the lender reported to the IRS as a credit or short pay amount, and that percentage varies whether you are self employed or wage earner.
Make sure you always as your CPA for tax advise. I hope this makes things cleare for you.

Hi Paul,
In answer to your question, yes, your credit will be ruined for a while if you do a short sale. It can ruin your FICO scores by 80-160 points depending on various circumstances with your short sale. It is better than a foreclosure thought which I have seen make FICO scores go down 300 points or more. So, your credit will get ruined either way, but the short sale is a better way to go. It shows that you at least tried to do something instead of letting it get to foreclosure status.

If you only have a first deed of trust on your home you have a better chance of doing a short sale than if you have a first and a second or even a third. You have to get approval from all three banks at that point which can really be a nightmare.

And, you must prove you are having a hard time financially making the payments in order for the bank to even think about accepting your house as a short sale. Short sales can take a while as well, so it is important that you pick a good real estate agent that has done them before. If you pick someone that does not know what they are doing, then it can really take a long time. If you get an offer and it does take a lot longer then most likely the buyers will walk because they get tired of waiting for the short sales to get approved by the negotiator of the banks. The banks are bogged down with short sales and really do not have the man power to service them which is just making things take even longer. So, be prepared, they are not that easy to do. Make sure you have a professional to handly this for you. I wish you good luck with your decision!
