No, you don't have to spend or reinvest the gain if you meet the below requirements of the home being your personal residence. You are thinking of a 1031 tax deferred exchange, which only concerns investment property, not your personal residence.
You can exclude up to...

You can sell all or some of the timber and defer your capital gains taxes via a 1031 exchange.
You would have to re-invest the sales proceeds in anther investment property, but it only needs to be like-kind and considered an investment property.

I believe Stout is correct on the personal residence.
Regarding the business and business property, you have an adjusted basis in the property due to depreciation and/or any capitalization . Take your sales price and subtract your adjusted basis in the property, and that is your capital gain. Yo...

The title company will order a title history(abstract). The attorney will review and make sure the title is clear. If...

A title attorney is liable for their title opinion for three years.

In regards to title insurance, it's about your risk tolerance. To me, a relativel...

I am not sure when you must designate as an S-Corp with the IRS. Maybe Poodle or someone else can chime in. I'm sure any CPA's office would know off hand.
Remember, you can not switch back and forth from one to the other. I believe after several years, you can go back to filing as an LLC, but t...

I think I could have worded that differently.
If you have a single member LLC or a multiple member/manager LLC, you are taxed as a sole proprietorship or as a partnership. Both of these are taxed at year end when you file a 1040SE, self-employment tax.
If you file as an s-corp, you do not pa...

You can pay yourself a normal "fair" salary and also through distributions.
Your salary will have taxes taken out of it.
The distribution portion will not have the self-emp. tax and will be taxed at your person income level.
I believe that rate is still 15.3%, so you can save yourself a sign...

File the LLC prior to closing. It would help to have it before the purchase agreement is signed so that you will not have to assign the purchase agreement to your new LLC. You can literally have the LLC set up in a day or two on the internet.

Create the LLC and then do an act of contribution to your new entity. Any real estate attorney can do that for a minimum fee.

Also, are there any current encumbrances against the prope...
