Yes, you can sell it pretty much anytime you want. There are certainly considerations in selling in a short time after purchase, though. There are additional costs that a seller must pay at the time of selling their home: taxes to the town and taxes to the state (conveyance taxes), attorney's fees, real estate commission (if you use a real estate agent), and you need to check with your lender about your payoff figure. Most loans nowadays do NOT have pre-payment penalties, but you should check with your lender just to be sure. Beyond all of that, in most areas, the market has not recovered sufficiently to allow you to do all of this without bringing money from your own pocket to the closing table. The other consideration is that many lenders require that you live in a property as owner-occupied for at least the first year after purchase, or the lender may have recourse regarding your interest rate (owner-occupied loans are typically at better interest rates than "investor" loans--which is what they consider any property that is not owner-occupied).
