Q: I have a contract offer for my primary residence that is about 10 times what I thought the home was worth. The county I live in is changing the zoning from agriculture residential to commercial. The entire community is most likely becoming a data center campus. If I sell the home, I would have a sizable capital gains tax to pay. I was hoping with the change of zoning designation I can convert my primary residence to a business. Then as a business I could sell the home using a 1031 like-kind exchange to roll over the entire sales proceeds into a different real estate investment. Does this sound possible and if so who should I get to help me?
