Don't type in CAPITAL LETTERS as it is considered as shouting on the internet.
From APRIL 2009 to NOW when you Sell it you can claim a part Capital Gains Exemption as your main residence.
The part of the capital gain that is taxable is calculated as follows:
If using a real estate agent there is sales commission of about 2 – 3 %
of sale price
If using solicitor there will be the legal fees charged to sell and settle transaction
There may be advertising costs if using an agent
You may need to get selling contract signed at Police station (like a stat dec sort of requirement)
If buying another property there is stamp duty
If borrowing you may be up for mortgage insurance if LVR >80%
