How does it work?
The federal government allows homeowners to accrue equity in their primary residence tax-free up to a certain amount: $250,000 if single, $500,000 if married. Keep your home beyond these limits and you’ll be paying more in taxes when you sell. Selling when you reach those limits and transitioning to a new primary residence allows you to accrue more wealth tax-free.
Who should use the TooMuchEquity method?
Those that want to grow their wealth through real estate and pay less in taxes while doing it.
The TME method over time
Below is a visual of how the TooMuchEquity method works if you were to sell your home each time you near your capital gains limits.
If a homeowner follows the TME method by selling when they reach their capital gains limit, they will dramatically increase their equity and lower their tax basis with each new home purchase compared to a homeowner who does not sell their home.
