But you'll have the income -- surely the house sale will generate enough $ to pay the tax on your gain.

I'd get to a good tax attorney or CPA and get some advice -- for one thing, I'm not sure what your cost basis in the house would be. Have your records in order; property tax is deductible, for example.

Your purchase of a franchise is a separate matter.
