I also think your timing on going into a child friendly area is the right decision. Population charts show 3 distinct groups, the baby boomers ('45-'64), the gen Xers('65-'78), and the echo boom( '79-'90's). Boomers are retiring and selling their extra space homes, gen X doesn't have the numebrs to keep up demand, and the echo boom is still in condo phase. This should translate into higher supply of kid friendly homes, and lower demand for them, which should equate to a lower price. And by the time you're ready to sell, the echo boom will be getting into their family phase respuring demand.
Condos are traditionally difficult to sell...BUT...that is just one part of your larger goal! I'm sure you are aware that the housing prices are low and that it's a great time to buy! It's a math equation...and it depends on where you want to be in a year or five years.
I would be more than happy to discuss the market value of your condo but I would need more information on the property. Please give me a call or drop me an email. I am in Marlborough myself and can be very flexible.
