This is by far the largest trade I've made to this point. One has to think of the housing market as a trade. The wife and I have somewhat more than $200k in profits if we were to sell our house. There are a ton of nice condos for rent on the water here in Tampa for very reasonable prices. My question is, what would be a tax effecient investment strategy for our proceeds. I'm thinking 2 yr cd but I'm not all that creative. We hope to buy again in that time period. Are there tax benefits from a basket of preferred stocks? Are there moderately safe 7% returns out there? I appeal to my fellow traders for ideas Thx in advance.
