MAGI: Why they saw Infant Jesus at a house and not a stable?

According to Matthew 2:11, the Magi went into the house and saw the child Jesus. Why does the Evangelist mention house and not a stable?

According to the scholars, by the time the Magi arrived, Jesus might have grown a few months, and the Holy Family might have found someone’s house for their temporary stay in Bethlehem until Mary could travel back to Nazareth with the baby. So, Matthew writes the Magi entered not a stable, but a house.
