Good Day Elieen,
Sorry for your families loss. The market in 2013 showed another year of rising home prices. I have lived in SLO North County for 42 yr and work for a local Brokerage in Atascadero. Atascadero is unique in that it is not your typical layout of a town. It is limited in space to grow. In the North County the home prices are 2nd highest only to Templeton. Your decision to sell is best based on your families needs and wants. I would suggest a conversation with an estate planner to see if what your tax liability will be and if you would like to sell in Atascadero. and move the funds to another investment closer to you. Please feel free to call or email with any questions you may have. I am happy to be of service.
