My bf and I are house shopping. We’re kid free, and plan to stay that way, so we don’t need a huge house, but we do need space for an office, reading nook, music room, and home gym. These things plus a 2 car garage and a decent sized kitchen are our must-haves.
Our budget is $250k, which is lower than the cost of most of the houses we’ve seen and really loved (they’re closer to $300k, which we can’t comfortably afford.)
For $250k we’ve found that we usually have to compromise on 1 or 2 things in any house we look at.
We found a house yesterday that we really liked, except for 2 things-
1.) The full bathroom is tiny with almost no counter space
2.) There’s no dedicated dining room (the kitchen does have enough space for a table, but not a big one).
We don’t usually eat at a table currently, but did want some dining space for entertaining.
We’ve looked at close to 30 houses and this is the first one that’s checked all the major boxes? Are we being too picky for thinking about passing on it just because of the dining room and bathroom?
