Interesting question. Best way to approach it may be to buy it as a 2 family using the equity you have in your unit. You can also use any rental income that you will be getting from the 2nd towards your ability to afford the mortgage. Depends on how long you've owned your unit and how much equity you have in it.

Depending on the footage that needs to be installed. The size of the system and if you are handy enough to do some of the lay out prep work the cost is approx $7,000. plus.

Good luck.

Belmont is a very nice town that is close to Boston, I feel pretty confident in saying that you've already seen the worst of the declining prices.....
