madgonad: The house doesn't have mold - and even if it does it isn't a problem.

The guy wants to move and the value of the property has dropped to less than his equity. A loophole in the tax law allows him to 'donate' the house to the fire department at full value and get a complete write-off on his equity loss. So he is getting a big tax credit to cover his real estate loss. This loophole only exists for high-earners with high-value homes with negative equity.

I'll believe the fire department over you, thanks

Just goes to show you that any dwelling, no matter how costly & opulent, can get fubar'd by one little patch of mold.
