Do I have to pay capital gains tax if I made no profit?

Taxfilter: I sold a condo in April. I sold it for $5,000 less than I bought it for, but I walked away with some money because I had owned it for 10 years and paid down the principal. I had been renting it out for 4 years before I sold it because I moved to a city nearby. I also put about 10K into renovations over the past few years. Do I have to pay any capital gains taxes? Is it worth it to try to get any kind of credit for the loss I took when I sold it for less than I bought it for?

If I stay in a new home while selling an old one, can I still avoid capital gains taxes?

CapitalgainsFilter: I bought a new house and my old house is set to go on the market on Monday. I'm just two months shy of the 2 years minimum residence requirement for avoiding capital gains taxes, and will make sure the old house isn't sold before that cut-off date. But do I really have to sleep in the old house all the way up to the end date? [more inside]
