Distressed Ohio Homeowners May Qualify for Ohio's Save the Dream Ohio Transition Assistance Program (TAP)
If your financially distressed Ohio clients can no longer afford their homes and are pursuing a short sale or a deed in lieu of foreclosure, they may be eligible for financial help with their relocation to alternative housing.
The funds come from Transition Assistance Program (TAP), part of the Save the Dream Ohio Program.
The state of Ohio is providing up to $5,000 in transition assistance to qualified homeowners who can no longer afford to stay in their homes.  You can help by advising your distressed clients that they must:
  • Apply for the funds through their state's website or by calling 1.888.404.4674.
  • Maintain their property until their house is sold or returned to the lender via a negotiated deed in lieu of foreclosure.
For qualified homeowners, these state funds may be used in addition to any other transition assistance that the homeowner may receive by participating in the Federal Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives (HAFA) program or in any other pre-offer short sale program.

To learn more about the Transition Assistance Program's guidelines, and how your clients may qualify, please visit that program's website at

The 2007 Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relieft Act has been EXTENDED!!!!!

Congress passed a bill yesterday, The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (Sec. 202) which extends the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act through December 31, 2013. This legislation extends dozens of other tax cuts that have expired or are set to expire at the end of the year, including one that extends homeowners’ ability to deduct the cost of mortgage insurance on a qualified personal residence.

Under the federal tax code, all types of forgiven debt are treated as income, subject to regular taxes. Because of the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act, homeowners who get their mortgage debt forgiven through either a short sale, loan modification, deed in lieu or foreclosure won’t be taxed on the amount forgiven up to $2 million. This has been a huge incentive for sellers in a distressed situation!!! This act has helped distressed homeowners move on and get back on track faster!
This law was set to expire December 31, 2012. If it hadn’t been extended, any forgiven amount of debt would be considered taxable income, which would be devastating for homeowners who are already experiencing a financial hardship.

If you or someone you know is facing foreclosure please do not hesitate to call me! I am an experienced short sale agent who can help you avoid foreclosure!! I am a FREE service to you if you qualify for a short sale!!!  There are options available to you, don't just walk away!!!

FHFA Announces Short Sale Assistance for Military

On June 21,2012 the Federal Housing Finance Agency is announcing changes to short sale polices that will make it easier for military homeowners with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Mortgages to honor their financial responsibilities when they are issued ta Permanent Change of Station (PCS) order. 

This program will alleviate the tough issues that the average home owner is facing when they sell their home in this tough economy.  When a member of the armed forces receives a PCS orders it requires them to move to a new duty station under short, strict time lines.  If their homes have declined in value, they may be unable to sell the home and obtain sufficient funds to pay off the mortgage debt obligating them to continue making monthly payments after relocating to a new duty station. 

What this program will do is allow these service members with PCS orders eligible for a short sale immediately, even when they are current on their existing mortgage.  Once they receive permission stating they are eligible they will be exempt from deficiency judgments from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.  They will be relieved of any request or requirement for a cash contribution or promissory note so long as the property was purchased on or before June 30, 2012. 

To be eligible the person must be in the military and have a PCS order.  Their current mortgage must be owned or guaranteed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.

If you think you may be eligible for this program, please call me today!!!  I am a short sale expert in the Central Ohio area and if you qualify for this program you can hire me for FREE to assist you!!!
