Small is the New Big

The average size of new homes is dropping.  This is after a two-year period that saw size increase significantly.  This is according to the National Association of Home Builders’ Eye on Housing.The COVID-19 pandemic changed how much time people spent in their homes and also how they used their homes. Homeowners discovered a need for more residential space as work-from-home became more prevalent.  This caused a demand for larger space.Now, as housing affordability has become more important, that trend is reversing.  Median single-family square floor area fell to 2,203 square feet during the fourth quarter of 2022, and is now the lowest it has been since 2011.
