What size house should I buy?

We are starting to look at houses to buy. I only have one baby right now, so should I just get a 2 br for now and move bigger if I have more kids? In the area I'm looking the 2br houses are from 29,000. Too good to be true? NOPE we already looked at a few they don't really need much work just paint and carpet. Even if I have another baby they could share a room for a while. right?

  • I guess it depends on if you're willing to move again if you have another baby.
    I'd go ahead and look for a house with at least 1 extra bedroom.

  • OMG $29,000?!!! Where do you live? Average "cheaper" homes where I live (Northern CA) start around $250,000. Anyhow, if you can afford the mortgage, I go for a 3 bedroom. Might as well have the extra space, right?

  • Ditto dannydawna. OMG! At that price I would buy the 2br.

  • I would go for a 3 bd, Also, where do you live? In SE Wisconsin, you can't even get a mobile home for $29,000. The average house is probably over $150,000.

  • Unless you want to move again, I would go ahead and get a 3 bedroom. Especially with housing prices the way they are right now.
