You’ll need some upgraded building once you’ve got a higher level of the population but do that slowly since it’ll require money and you need money for so many different things than just upgrading the buildings.
Moreover, whenever you upgrade a lower level building, for example, a Farmer’s House, to a higher level building, make sure to make another building for the farmer, otherwise, they’ll become homeless and unhappy before leaving.
