我去。。。他家,知道他住在哪里.

I do not know what to choose in this sentence: 了 or 过. In my opinion:

(1) 我去了他家,知道他住在哪里. (I had been to his house)

(2) 我去过他家,知道他住在哪里. (I had had the experience of being in his house)

Question: Is what I think correct? If wrong, please explain it to me.

2

了 indicates the verb is 'completed action'

过 indicates the verb is 'experienced action'

我去过 他家,知道他住在哪里. (I had gone to his house before, so I know where he lives) is the correct one

去过 = had gone before

去了 = have gone to
