For your first home, would you go with a lower quality new build(LGI Homes) to save money to enable you to buy your second property sooner, rather then spending a lot more on a more quality new built home?

As the title states, I am going back and forth with my fiancé on if we should go with LGI homes or not and the main sticking point for her is that it doesn’t look as nice (Glamorous in her words) as other builders. The house for example will have the cheap looking textured dry walls, basic carpet, basic lvp, 4 foot cement pad out back etc. however it is about $40k-60k cheaper then comparable size new build homes that have more laid out features. Another benefit of LGI homes is that if I use their lender they cover all closing costs and they also include all stainless steel appliances which other new builds are not including fridges for example. Savings out of pocket here I estimate to be between 8k-13k with having no closing costs and not having to buy a fridge. Our plan regardless of which home builder we go with is to live in the house for 3-4 years and then buy a bigger house and turn this first home into a rental. Does anyone have any advice on either LGI Homes from experience with them or advice on if going with the less laid out house would be a bad or good decision? Thanks!
