Should Condo Renters Facing Ever Higher Costs Just Do What it Takes to Buy? + Is it the Right Time to Downsize? — ‘The Situation’ Consumer Q&A

In our regular Move Smartly feature, "The Situation," lead contributor John Pasalis responds to the questions that real estate consumers are asking right now.

This month, John responds to home buyers who wonder if it’s the right time to downsize and another who wonders if they can upsize and hold onto their current property as an investment. And a frustrated renter asks whether it makes more sense to pull together a downpayment buy a condo right now as rents continue to rise.
