Trulia survey finds biggest regret among homeowners is buying too small

Jed Kolko, chief economist for online real-estate website Trulia, stopped by the Wall Street Journal earlier this week to discuss some interesting findings from a recent survey of homeowners. During a recording of “Lunch Break” (above), Kolko joined the growing number of economists who now believe the market has shifted and sellers now have the upper-hand.

The Trulia survey found the No. 1 regret among homeowners is buying a house that’s too small. And second? Not investing in remodeling projects right away.

See the video above for more from Kolko and Trulia.

Absolutely; I've always known this. Especially among families without children hoping to have them or families looking to expand. Older buyers are looking in the other direction as they become empty nesters.
