Four years ago (year 1), he bought a new york city condomimium apartment for$4,000,000. His work schedule made it impractical for him to lease the premises to others. While he enjoyed significant appreciation in its valueduring the first two years of ownership, the recession dramatically affected its value. Fearing that he might sustain an actual loss on hisinvestment, after months of advertising, he finally sold the apartment for $4,500,000, which closed on new year?s eve, december 31, year 4.In the first year of his ownership he utilized the apartment periodically and was present therein for 120 days. While there, he and his spouse andtheir child enjoyed the city?s cultural attractions, while also conducting business from his home, a ritual which he followed annuallly, in parthoping that his child would become bilingual. Given the child?s eight-month presence in Riyadh and education at one of the best private schools inall of saudi arabia, Abbar felt that the four-month immersion in American culture would better prepare his child for the future.During years 1-4, Abbar followed his same pattern of living and working during his 120 day stay.
