Thinking about buying a bigger house?
Well, you never just buy a bigger house.
You also buy a bigger light bill, heating bill, water bill, insurance bill, decorating bill, remodeling bill, lawn care bill. And if you happen to move into that nice upscale neighborhood, you might also tack on to all the rest a larger set of expenses for a more upscale lifestyle (food, travel, entertainment).
None of this is necessarily good or bad. It’s just reality.
