I do not know if the rules have changed but used to be the answer was no; however there is a way to do it; if you rented the property and used it as a rental for over six months showing intent to rent , you could take the loss off  on taxes . this was a great loophole for loss on sale at one time,,,,dont know if the rules have changed in last several years
