Has your home increased in value more than $250,000 since you purchased it?  If so you could be leaving money on the table by not selling it now as any future equity growth over $250,000 ($500,000 for a married couple) might be taxed.

I'm a Realtor and therefore am not qualified to provide tax advice.  This information should not be taken as tax or legal advice. With that said, I'd encourage you to read this article and contact your tax advisor for further advice.
