Nope, didn’t love my house when we first saw it, and it’s still not the perfect house, but it was (and still is) the right choice. We weren’t buying our forever home, we were buying our starter house; something to get us out of renting, provide stability, and help us start our lives together. We needed a certain geographical area, didn’t want a large yard, didn’t want a fixer-upper, and were on a budget. Our house fit the bill. Do I wish we had more space? Yes. Could we have afforded more space? No. The good news is that our house as appreciated in value, and between it and our growing savings, someday we’ll be able to have the luxury of picking out a house we love. Until then, we’re very happy in our home, and feel incredibly lucky to have found it when we did. I know it seems crazy to spend that much on something you don’t 100% love, but this has to be a logical decision as well as an emotional one.
