Median Size of New Single Family Homes | By: Nicolas Zepeda

The NAHB’s Eye on Housing is reporting that the size of new single-family homes continued their trend of decreasing in size during the fourth quarter of 2016.  According to the report, the median single-family square floor area was 2,453 square feet, and the average (mean) square footage for new single-family homes was 2,661 square feet.  Bottom line; over time, houses are just plain getting bigger…

“The post-recession increase in single-family home size is consistent with the historical pattern coming out of recessions. Typical new home size falls prior to and during a recession as some home buyers tighten budgets, and then sizes rise as high-end homebuyers, who face fewer credit constraints, return to the housing market in relatively greater proportions.”
