If you sold the house on Dec 31 2016, you would report the sale in 2016. Even though you did not get the cash, you got a note receivable. That note has value, therefore you received value for the sale in 2016.

I hope this answers your question. If you have any more, please feel free to ask and I will be happy to answer.

Thanks! Have a great week!
