This not a question that can be answered with National Archives records. I would suggest that you contact the Massachusetts State Archives. You should probably also try to more fully fill out the life of the person you are researching, this might provide the best answer to your questions.

Even today people can be land rich and dirt poor. Think about farmers as an example.
To learn more see what similar sized properties sold for during the same time period. Good luck with your research.
