Should I sell my home now and purchase an affordable home that I can pay off in 10 years?I am 55 years old. I have a 30 year mortgage. I purchased my home in 2004. The purpose of buying this home was so that I could sell it and purchase something else at a lower mortgage price. Hopefully enabling me to have my final place of residence paid off by the time I am 65 years old. The bust in 2008 has kind of squashed my plans and now I am wondering if I should go ahead and sell it now and purchase an affordable home that I can have paid off in 10 years.It is taking so long for it to increase in value and I am putting all this money into a home that I will not be able to pay off.July 19 2012 - Lomita0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
