Once you've made the decision to sell your home, chances are you'd like to do it as soon as possible. While some houses sell almost as quickly as they hit the market, others sit for a considerable amount of time without generating any offers from prospective buyers. Fortunately, there are several steps that you can take to increase the odds that your house is in hot demand and sells quickly.
If you sell your family home and are lucky enough to make a good profit to help with the purchase of your next family home – don’t worry about it – if it’s all straight up and uncomplicated and the time factor is reasonable and you are doing what you say you are doing the IRD won’t be interested as the profits from the sale of a family home are generally not taxable. You will need to declare it on an IR3 – as an individual tax return and tell the IRD what you are doing and how all the figures are worked out.
