What does your first home look like?

My husband and I have a Real Estate business in South Florida and I just wanted to get this question out there to get an idea of how South Florida newlyweds think about purchasing their first home.

When we were married in 2006, we possibly thought too small and bought a two bedroom condo. Now we have a two year old and are thinking of baby number two. The good thing is that we almost have the condo paid off. Once we pay it off, we will have some extra income to do things we like to do: travel, even work less. The bad thing is that if we have both a boy and a girl, we will probably have to get creative and convert the garage into a third bedroom (even though it is already an office)!

My question is what are you and your spouse looking for in your first home? Or what did you look for if you already bought it? Do you try to stretch your budget to the max and maybe cause a little more stress or do you buy something smaller and make it work? Even if you have loads of money to spend, could buying something smaller or simpler allow you to work less, spend time with your spouse, travel more, or just sleep better?

 I would love to hear your thoughts!
