Asked by Lisa, Brooklyn, NY • Mon Aug 25, 2008
My boyfriend and I have started to look for our first homes and have begun to attend open houses in the area. After seeing a few coops and condos, we started to wonder if it was a good idea to look for a 1 bedroom now, or look for something that was a bit bigger since we know we would want to start a family in the immediate future, (say within 3-4 years).
Within our budget we can either buy a 1br in a prime neighborhood, or get a 2br in a good neighborhood.
I guess what I'm asking is whether or not to buy a home that is suitable for now, when we don't have any children, (and think about selling/renting that first home in 3-4 years), or to buy a place with enough room to grow. Is there anything I should take into consideration at this point when we are looking?
Any and all advice is highly appreciated!
