The background info....
I bought a house in LA in 1999. I moved to TX in 2001. I owner financed the house in LA at that time. The person that "bought" the house in LA didn't make payments in a timely fashion and I recently repo'ed it and re-sold it.

If I use the money from the sale of the LA house to pay for the house I am currently in, do I still pay capital gains?

Thanks,
Ginger
