The first thing I would recommend is to double check with your accountant. However, most likely if you lived there most of the time for the last 2 years you would not have to pay capital gains tax on the proceeds. ENJOY!

Next, the time of year depends on several factors. Right now is an AMAZING time because of the shortage of inventory paired with the low interest rates for buyers. It's a perfect storm. In general, there are more buyers looking in the Spring/Summer, and theoretically there are more homes on the market at that time which increases competition for your home. In practice, I find another big sales time is actually 4th quarter because while there are fewer buyers, the buyers are serious because they typically need to move before January. All of these tid bits are good to know, but the truth is a really good agent would be able to look at the market and look at your home and put a strategy together that is right for your property and your personal goals. Every one of my marketing strategies have been different for every home and client I have represented. Find the agent who takes the time to tailor fit it for you!

If your realtor is a member of the MLS in Charlotte, and lists your home in the MLS, it should be syndicated to Trulia. Because over 90% of the buyers find their home online at websites like Trulia, it is really important to have maximum exposure to as many sights as possible. There is a service called "ListHub" which will send hundreds of websites the information from the MLS, and some agents have more bells and whistles on the internet than others. GOOD LUCK and happy selling!! ... more

I am retired Army...My advice is to use your VA benefit. It allows you to purchase a home with no money down and if you are disabled the funding fee (insurance they charge is prorated down depending on the disability percentage). it is a great way to get into a house.

I help veterans everyday realize the home ownership dream...if I can be of any assisitance to you please do not hestiate to either call me at 704-519-7895 or e-mail me back at

No, as long as you are 100% upfront with the lender regarding your intentions. Since it is going to be a rental property, you'd likely need more of a down payment (last I dealt with one, lender wanted 20% down for investment properties) to purchase it. I just purchased a property from a family member, and all the lenders I talked with had no issue with this. All they cared about was my credit score, income and ability to repay the loan. ... more
