I've noticed this on real life, on here, and on those house buying shows. So many people buy more house than they can afford, or barely afford, and become house poor. Most of the time the home they pick is their first home too! Why not start small and build a little equity and work hard to pay the mortgage down, THEN work up into the dream home?
Part of me wonders if this is the reason so many foreclose. Are you house poor?
