Capital gains is a profit from the sale of property or an investment. It is a rise in the value of a capital asset that gives it a higher worth than the purchase price.

 

A good example of this is selling a real estate, as time goes by its value can increase twice or triple depending on its location and condition. It’s an investment that can gain you money if handled well.
