Valuation modeling. 250k capital gains waiver

Post by TomCat96 » Fri Apr 27, 2018 5:03 pm

This is a complex question because it is so ambiguous.

As many of you know, every 5 years up to 250k of capital gains on a sale of real estate may be excluded subject to the requirements disclosed in the link.

A few financially savvy individuals therefore move every 5 years capturing capital gains that are not taxed. The question is this, what is the opportunity cost of not taking that option? Needless to say assumptions will have to be made. But I want to know if other people have thought about this.
