Almost Half of Americans Have Regrets About Their Home Purchase

Forty-four percent of homeowners have regrets about their most recent home purchase or the process they went through when buying it according to a survey by Trulia.

The biggest regret was not buying the right home size according to 42% of the 2,000 people surveyed, with a third of homeowners wishing they had bought a bigger home.

Fifteen percent of those polled wished they had more information before deciding on their home and 26% wished that they had done more or less remodeling after their purchase.

The top regret for renters (41%) was wishing that they had purchased instead of rented and 33% said that they wish they would of chosen a larger residence.
