Well I could run the stats for the communities I serve but not sure how useful that would really be. It certainly varies by community. Not sure that folks are looking for smaller homes as a general trend, the bigger issue is amenities and upgrades

Our market encompasses two states, well over a dozen counties, urban, rural, suburban.... just too hard to generalize and a generic average would be useless.

Jack - That is very difficult to determine in my market, since we have homes built in the 1980's that are just around 1,000 sq ft; right next to homes built in the late 90's, that range from 1,600 sq ft to 3,000 sq ft; and right next to those, are homes built in the early 2000's that are 4,000 sq ft to 5,000 sq ft plus. These neighborhoods are all right next to one another, and it is like that all over my service area.

Different buyers want different sizes of homes.  Some condo builders are now building projects with units as small as 300 sq ft.  Some properties have several thousand sq ft.  I don't know if anyone has calculated the average size of a home across my market.

There are homes and townhomes here Jack Lewitz, and the range is between 1100 to 2000+ sq. ft. - so 1500 to 1700 sq. ft. would be our average size.
