Re: How Big is Your McMansion?
I'm in similar situation to you....just sold our house in DC suburbs and moved south. We'd only lived there five years but house doubled in value. We bought a 3700 sq ft house that is still under construction. It seems bigger than we need as well (just 2 of us plus pets), but it seems that most of the new houses being built are on the larger size, and we were thinking of resale in case we don't stay here.
This house will have a lot of niceties that our Northern VA house didn't have, and we will bank +$300 k. If we end up staying here that will be fine, or we may decide that downsizing is in our future?
I'd been feeling guilty about all this space, but I think we will use most of it except for the formal living room. I tried to find a house without one, but unless we were to build from scratch it just wasn't available in the areas we wanted to live.
I hope you enjoy your new house!!!!
