I have a condo in San Diego that I have owned since October
I have a condo in San Diego that I have owned since October of 2008. I lived in it from that time until October of 2009 when I joined the military. Upon joining the military I was moved around the country from October 2009 to July 2011. During this time I rented out the condo as a long-term rental.In July 2011 I was stationed back in San Diego and I returned to live in the condo from July 2011 until October 2012 when I bought a single family home and moved there. Since October 2012 until the current time, May 2014, I have been renting out the condo as a short term rental. If I were to sell the condo right now would I be subject to capital gains tax?

My husband lives abroad due to a work assignment (less than 30 days in the US in 2011). I live and work in the US. He pays foreign income tax and I pay U.S. tax. His entire income is under the foreign income exclusion amount, however, if filing jointly, the resulting tax is much higher than what I would have paid filing separately. Can i claim foreign tax credit in addition to foreign income exclusion since we're filing jointly? Or are the two mutually exclusive? If so, can I use his foreign tax to offset my US liability (assuming filing jointly)?
