What is a Short Sale ?
When you sell your property for less than what you owe your bank(s). A short sale home is when the lender(s) on the property agrees to allow the homeowner to list, and sell the property for the current market/appraised value which, is lower than the amount owed on the mortgage. Even though it is not enough to pay off the mortgage loan(s) you can still walk away with your dignity. Homeowners, hope to sell their home as a short sale to avoid penalties associated with going into foreclosure. At the end of a short sale your bank will report the debt has been settled, and the negative credit reporting from your mortgage lender(s) STOP and you will be 100% debt free with your underwater mortgage. Short Sales are usually the best alternatives to foreclosure. Short sales allow homeowners to minimize financial damage, and move on from a burdensome, unaffordable mortgage. In many cases, short sales allow borrowers to qualify for a new mortgage in as little as two years, as opposed to five to seven years or more after a foreclosure. Short Sale is generally considered the most viable option for the majority of homeowners struggling with their mortgage. The following are some of the benefits of a short sale:

Why is a Short Sale better than a Foreclosure?
In a Short Sale, the bank releases you from the loan. There is no further obligation to pay. Short Sale homes are still owned by the home owner. After a short sale, your debt will be considered paid in full or settled. You may qualify to buy a house FHA again within a short time after the short sale. There are many ways to lose a home but signing away ownership in a manner that destroys credit, embarrasses the family and strips an owner of dignity is one of the hardest, and that's what foreclosures tend to offer. For homeowners who can no longer afford to keep mortgage payments current, a short sale is an alternatives to bankruptcy or foreclosure proceedings.
In a Foreclosure, the bank can SUE you for the short fall. The bank(s) has 6 years to collect the full amount you borrowed, plus fees. As you rebuild your life and income, the bank can garnish your wages & seize money from your bank account.

Canceled Debt & Mortgage Forgiveness for Owner Occupant Short Sales
Most individuals who short sale their home will not have to pay income tax on the amount of mortgage debt that was forgiven or canceled. The tax-free exclusion applies to canceled mortgage debt of up to $2 million (or $1 million is married and filing a separate return). There are additional details to consider to qualify for this tax exclusion. The house must have been used as a main home, which means it was the principal place of residence for the debtor.
Other Exclusions for Canceled Debts
You Will Most Likely Also be Exempt from Paying Taxes for Selling your Non Owner Occupied, Investment or Rental Properties by Short Sale. Besides the provision for mortgages on main homes, the tax code provides other ways that canceled debt can be tax-free. Canceled debts do not need to be included in taxable income if the debt was canceled if the individual is insolvent, or if the canceled debt was intended as a gift. The insolvency exclusion is particularly relevant, as it will likely apply to borrowers with home equity loans or mortgages on second homes and rental properties. This insolvency provision will prove helpful to individuals who don't otherwise qualify for the mortgage debt relief. To be considered insolvent, the person's liabilities must exceed the fair market value of their assets. This is will be especially true of borrowers who's properties have dropped in value and who now must restructure their loans or surrender their properties through short sale or foreclosure. "A debtor is insolvent when, and to the extent, the debtor's liabilities exceed the FMV of the assets. Determine the debtor's liabilities and the FMV of the assets immediately before the cancellation of the debtor's debt to determine whether or not the debtor is insolvent and the amount by which the debtor is insolvent."
