According to a new survey, this is the number one regret of first time home buyers about the house that they bought.


That it is too small


Most first time home buyers say they have no regrets about their house, but among those who do have regrets, the house being too small is the top one. Once your family starts growing you need more space than you initially thought. What’s funny is we bought a house that we thought would be big enough for a growing family but, after only having one child, we started thinking it was a little too big. It’s not huge but we have four bedrooms which is more than we need. The second most common regret among first time home buyers was not having saved enough money for a down payment and having a larger monthly payment as a result. Did you have any regrets as a first time home buyer?
