Is it worth down sizing now or next year?I had purchased a house about 24 years ago, and as the price has never gone up, I kept making additions and improvements till it has now grown from the original 1800sft to 5200 sft occupied space. Lot size is 1.25 acres. Property is located in northern Mass close to Nashua. My realtor keeps mentioning that the house prices have fallen rock bottom. As I am planning to retire and am too old to maintain by myself, Is it worth moving to a smaller house near Marlboro this year or next year? House has been paid off since last year. The 1100 sft sunny walk out basement is very convenient for tenants. But being in a rural part of Mass we don't get many tenants or much rent. We have several energy saving features such as radiant floors, deep well yard irrigation, town water/sewer, sun room, etc. Will the prices for housing come back to its orig values next year?April 29 2012 - US0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
