The median size of new homes in the U.S. increased from just over 1,500 square feet in 1973 (the first year the Census Bureau began tracking new home size) to 2,309 square feet at its peak in 2007. The median size has declined almost 10% since then. Will the trend to smaller-sized homes persist? Let's consider the changing demographics.

I have read several articles regarding this topic in the past several weeks. Trey provided his Top Ten Reasons to buy the right size home (as opposed to a McMansion) in his blog on October 10th. It was also the subject of NAHB?s Chief Economist David Crowe?s article in the October edition of Builder magazine and it was the cover article in the November edition. Will the trend to smaller-sized homes persist?

The following article appeared in today's edition of Big Builder Online. Hey, maybe I can file a federal lawsuit against Ford Motor Company for building and selling too many F-150 pickups that get less than 20 mpg causing their values to plummet. Or maybe I can file a federal lawsuit against all of the major oil companies for raising the price of gasoline causing the demand for any low mpg vehicles to plummet.
