Home Purchase? Size DilemmaHello,We are first time home buyers that are facing a dilemma on the selection of a house in an upscale community. Below are some of our facts- are a professional couple with one toddler. Expect to have one more kid- will have extended family visiting us from time to time and will stay with us 4-6 months in a year- Good credit scores (720-730) - Decent Pay (250 combined family income)We are looking at a certain plan with the upgrades that we need at $$$K range. The square footage of the home with upgrades is about 4200 sft. However, we found another plan that pretty covers everything we want at the same price point and even gives more. However that house is 4900 sft. We really don't need 4900, even 4200 but the plan that works is that.Our current dilemma is if we should buy the bigger home as it gives more for same price OR buy the home we customized at the same price. Some of the considerations we are going through are- Bigger house mean more property tax- Bigger house mean more energy costs (heating/cooling)+ Bigger house may be easier to sell at same price point (??)? Will bigger house with not many options be a problem (??)Please post your commentsNovember 13 2013 - Northville Township0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
