so here's the deal. i'm trying to buy a new home. problem is i haven't been in my current home two years yet - two year date will be next april. when we asked the builder when this phase would be done, they told us june. so, no problem. now we're being told it may be done as early as march. big problem. capital gains tax is about 23 percent - which i can't afford - since i'm relying on my profit to put down on the new house. so my question is, what are my options? i've been told i can sorta delay the closing date by stating there's problems that i'm not happy with, etc. i don't want to be a jerk to the builder, but i certainly can not afford to close early. ---- the home seems to be coming along pretty well. they have all the framing (including roof and windows) and plumbing up (they're using that cool new flex tubing stuff instead of traditional pvc pipes) -- but that's about it. no roof shingles, electrical, sheetrock, etc. they just wrapped the vapor barrier and put up the chicken wire stuff (lathe?). can you guess i'm hoping for a *very* rainy winter?
