Yes, there are rules about capital gain. You are better off asking your CPA about it. Also here's a link from the IRS about it:

I keep finding places I like, but then I scroll down to see that they only accept small dogs. It's really frustrating, and a total waste of my time.

Hi Cissy,

I can do FHA & VA loans down to a 600 score BUT with a situation like this I would work with you on getting your scores up to qualify for a conventional loan so you have some options to pick from.

Take a look at the recommendations from some of my past clients on my Trulia profile by clicking the link below my phone number.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or help.

Darby,

It looks like it will be hard to find a rental property with your evictions, credit, and 4 dogs. Landlords are very picky and many limits the amount of pets a tenant can have in the property. You may want to pick up the phone and call a local realtor to discuss what you are looking for. My thought is for your to work on improving your credit score and then purchase a home. ... more
