Anyway, we value a smaller space overall for various reasons. There are a lot of condo communities down here, and we're kind of leaning that way. However, most of them are 2 bedroom condos. We have 1 DD and one on the way--we're waiting to find out the gender. Is it a bad idea to go with a 2 bedroom condo? From our perspective, it seems to make sense to stay within our price range that would allow us to just pay cash, so that we can free up our rent money to save up for a condo/house that has more bedrooms, should that become a necessity in the future. We're thinking that realistically, though, the necessity of more bedrooms would only happen if we have two kids of different genders, and not until they are much older, since we cosleep and all that jazz. At what age does it become inappropriate for two different gendered children to share a bedroom?
Also, people that we've mentioned the possibility of a condo to have said that we would regret not having a yard with little ones. Any yardless people want to weigh in? The city we live in has a ton more to do with little ones, (including a lot of low and no cost options) and with me staying at home while our kids are young at the very least gives me the flexibility at least to get out of the house.
