Question about English (US)

"If I had had enough money, I would've bought that house".
Back in school, I've learned like that sentence above. But I just heard on a video lecture that native speakers avoid saying "had had" and they usually say like "If I had enough money" instead. If that's true, it gets me confused. As far as I've leaned, If I say like "If I had enough money", this implies I don't have enough money NOW. But I just wanna say I didn't have enough money BACK THEN.
Can you help me to get it clear?
