MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Most people are thrilled when they buy their first home. However, other people have regrets.

Now, a new survey from Porch.com shows the biggest regrets of first time home buyers.

Number one: buying a home that was too small. The second most common regret was not saving enough money before buying. The third biggest regret was underestimating how much home buying requires.

Only 52 percent of those surveyed said they planned for home maintenance for their first year.

    You can always squeeze more room out of the inside of the house. And if your house payment is hard to make, just quit wasting money on stuff you don’t need, like groceries and more clothes. But if you buy a house with too small of a garage and no place to expand, you’re pretty much locked in to where you’re at.
