“The Truth About Short Sales” Seminar Set for Dec. 7

Jo Ann Koontz of Yesner & Boss and David Rothermel of Keller Williams offer free short sales seminar in Sarasota, Florida.

Sarasota, FL, December 04, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Attorney and CPA Jo Ann Koontz of Yesner & Boss, P.L., and Realtor David Rothermel of Keller Williams Realty will present a free seminar entitled, “The Truth About Short Sales,” Tuesday, Dec.7, starting at 7 p.m. The seminar will be held in Suite 201 of the Keller Williams office, 6710 Professional Parkway, Sarasota, FL 34240.

“The short-sale market is rife with scams and misinformation,” said Rothermel. “This seminar will help inform home sellers so they can make appropriate decisions.”

"The tax consequences of a short sale are complex and confusing, and depend on individual circumstances,” said Koontz. “My focus is in helping sellers reduce or even eliminate the tax that they will owe as a result of a short sale. This process is much less intimidating when people understand what to expect."

The seminar will touch on borrower and property qualifications for a short sale, required documentation, short sales vs. deeds in lieu, the application process, tax consequences, the effect of a short sale on credit, credit repair, and how to get started. The seminar addresses primary residences, investment properties and commercial properties.

To register, email shortsalersvp@yahoo.com or call (941) 915-5056. The seminar is open to the public.

Koontz practices in the areas of real estate, business organizations and taxation. She focuses on negotiating short-sale transactions for financially stressed homeowners who owe more on their homes than the homes are worth.
