Home Sale ?<p>Looking at selling, and moving into a rental location for 12-18+ months (Travel for work). When I sell the home/townhouse and I walk away with money is there a way I can avoid paying taxes (Capital gains) after the sale. I'm not ready to build just yet still working things out with lot/home etc. Could I use the money to buy the lot and thus avoid the Capital gains, or do I have to move it into a construction loan to avoid (C.G. tax).</p>September 19 2012 - Perryville0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
