invest02 asks,

How much of your total worth should be in your home? Is it wise to sell & invest the money or hold the house? 50% of my worth is in my house. I guess I'm wondering if housing prices will fall or continue to go up.


There's an article in the October 2004 issue of Money magazine that advises downsizing to a less expensive home if your home represents more than 20% of your net worth.
