Hi from just answer. I'm PDtax, and will assist.
You are a few months short of the holding requirement to exclude the second gain. You must hold it as your principal residence for 24 months plus. You also have to be more than 24 months away from the previous sale.
You can sell, but schedule the second closing to go past the 24 months to save the taxes on the second sale.
Thanks for asking at just answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'm PDtax.
