What a timely post. For my wife and I we like owning a home. I have a question about trading up to a larger house.Our current home is nice. Our Equity is about $40k of a value total of $160K. We are thinking about buying another home that is a lot larger. This would be a house that would be our final home. We plan on retiring in 10 years. This house is $260k and we would put down 20%. Looking at what it would cost us in future investment earnings is about $220K over the 10 year period. Looks like our projected investment portfolio would be $750k at the end of the 10 year period.My question really centers around is it wise to make that plunge now or wait til 10 year point? I think about the higher housing cost and that bigger point further out in the future.ThanksJDW
