I recently bought a primary house (less than 1 year back) and need to sell it. If I take a loss on the house ($35K after sales commission and closing cost) and buy a new house within 30 days, can I carry that loss on the new house. The buying and selling of the house will be in california. I was told alternate way is to rent the house for 6 months and take capital gain loss.
