My husband built it before we were married so the mortgage and title are in his name only. I am purchasing our next home with my VA benefits and the mortgage will be in my name only.<br/><br/>My questions:<br/><br/>1. Am I correct in assuming that we qualify for the CGT exclusion because we have lived in it for more than a year?<br/>2. Do the exclusion mean that we won't ever have to pay tax on the gain or is it really just "deferred" for a period of time?<br/>3. If we have to put the gain into a new property within a certain timeframe, can we essentially put the money from a property he owns into a property I own?<br/><br/>Thanks so much for any help you can give.<br \><br \>1 reply Tue, 08 Oct 2013 15:04:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Capital-Gains/514564/ 2013-10-08T15:04:00Z How is it best to get a bid for a kitchen renovation? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-is-it-best-to-get-a-bid-for-a-kitchen-renovation/478678/ We are getting the survey and architect's work, but then what do we do to find a construction manager or??????<br \><br \>8 replies Thu, 14 Feb 2013 23:01:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/How-is-it-best-to-get-a-bid-for-a-kitchen-renovation/478678/ 2013-02-14T23:01:00Z I could rent for what I pay in monthly taxes, insurance and interest.
