Is my home considered Personal Property?

Yes. Personal use property is a capital asset. At the time of sale, there may be a gain, but you can't take a loss. There is also and exclusion for profits on the sale of your personal, primary home if you owned and lived in it for 2 out of the last 5 years as of the date of sale.
