I am trying to sell as much of my investment property as I can before the end of the year. I placed it all on the market last October with an agent(except of the home I just had built) when I had a feeling Obama would win reelection. I don't mind paying the 15% on Capital Gains but I'll be damned if I am going to pay more. Same for the few stocks I bought last month. Market is up and all was sold today, same reason. And, I won't be reinvesting any of it!
