any experiences? basically we have the house that we want later in life, now. work will most likely take my housing needs somewhere else so we don't need all this space for one person most of the time. we could get away with a much smaller space here for the time being while i work elsewhere. selling is not the greatest option right now as the market here has been flat since we bought and depressed since '08 with a brighter outlook in the next 3-5 years. if the house is getting paid off quickly by tenants, and we're able to buy a smaller place that would serve as a good rental down the road, it might make sense. i know the take on canadian real estate right now but markets are localized and there are deals around here when using rent/purchase ratios.
