Real Estate Capital Gain

A real estate capital gain refers to the difference between the sales price and purchase price of a property.  That difference is a capital gain.  In reality, the difference in purchase and sales prices may be adjusted for improvements, depreciation taken and other influences for income tax purposes.

The converse of a capital gain is a capital loss.  When the sales price is less than the purchase price (adjusted for certain items, of course) the result is a capital loss.

Capital gains and losses can also refer to other assets such as securities and personal property.  Capital gains can be offset by capital losses for income tax purposes.  Capital gains have their own income tax rate which is separate from ordinary income and usually more favorable due to the usual duration of many years of ownership.
