1st sailboat advice

I am again very close to purchasing my first sailboat, which will be used almost entirely for coastal cruising. I need to decide how long is too long. My experience is limited. This boat is the one on which I will learn how to really sail. What is holding me back is the idea that I will sail more and more over the coming years and will want a bigger boat if I start with a 27 or 28 footer. Would like to buy a great boat now and skip the selling of it in a
year or 2 in order to buy a better one. I am not loaded at all, so I'd like to do this right. Is a 30 or 32 foot boat too big to start with? Appreciate all advice. Thanks
