Hello, my name is***** goal is to give you a complete & accurate answer. I am working on your request now & I will respond as soon as possible.
Why are you moving to St. Louis?
What you do with the proceeds of your Nashville sale won't have anything to do with the taxable capital gain.
How much do you expect the capital gain on the sale of Nashville to be?
Well, the good news is that due to the primary residence exclusion and the fact that you are moving to St. Louis because of your job, you will most likely have no capital gains tax to pay on the sale of your home in Nashville. The reason is that when you move in connection with a job location change you get to prorate the exclusion and since you said "we" I presume you are married which means even the reduced exclusion will far exceed any gain on the sale of your Nashville home.
