"Real estate website Trulia.com recently reported 
that slightly more than half of Americans say 
that 1,400 to 2,600 square feet would be their 
ideal home size. According to the NAHB, nine of 
10 builders are planning or constructing smaller 
homes than in the past.

In 2010, the average new home size dropped to 
2,377 square feet and by 2015, the average newly 
built home is predicted to measure just 2,140 
square feet. Even in more affluent areas, 
builders are beginning to construct model homes 
that are one-third smaller than what they were 
building just a few years ago.

" 'Small is beautiful' is back in vogue," remarks 
Andrew Gates, a Sotheby's International Realty 
real estate broker in Salisbury, Connecticut. 
'The simplicity aesthetic is more prevalent after 
what we've been through the past few years.'"
