Press Release from C.A.R:

"Forgiveness Debt Relief Act, which will for one more year exempt the taxation of mortgage debt that is forgiven when homeowners and their mortgage lenders negotiate a short sale or loan modification (including any principal reduction).

However, the California exemption expired at the end of 2012, so forgiven mortgage debt is considered taxable state income for now.  A C.A.R.-sponsored bill, SB 30 (Calderon, D-Montebello), passed out of the Senate Governance & Finance Committee this week by a 6-to-0 vote.

This is the October 2012 article for the Carlsbad Business Journal.  -Tyson Lund


Fewer homes for sale amidst falling mortgage rates has left North County San Diego’s real estate market in a temporary seller’s market.  A 'sellers market' is defined as a time period when buyer demand for housing exceeds available supply.  A sellers market gives those selling property an opportunity to secure a higher price, sell faster and/or negotiate superior terms than compared to recent comparable sales.   And although only a fraction of the strength of the extreme sellers market 2004-2005 and possibly only temporary, the current sellers market is being confirmed with several key metrics used daily by real estate practitioners..

We here at The Lund Team continually look at the ever-changing reams of data for home sales in North San Diego County. Personally, what I find most interesting is the ever shrinking number of REO property during 2012. REO means real estate owned and is an acronym for a foreclosure home.  Short sale homes continue to be a significant part of the coastal real estate market.  find out what a short sale is here.

Carlsbad and General Market Summary:

Tyson Lund - Broker Associate , The Lund Team, Inc
