Does Size Matter?

Posted: March 10, 2017 by Global Administrator
Bigger is always better – isn’t it? This popular saying has morphed into reality as the bigger, badest, best trend has permeated almost every aspect of our daily lives. Take our homes for example. The median house size in America is approaching 3,000 sq. ft. (2,491 sq. ft. to be exact)! This extra space comes from formal living and dining rooms (which are redundancies of family rooms and eat-in kitchens), offices, laundry rooms, guest rooms and the like.

You’re probably thinking, “But my family really needs that space!” However, if you stop and think about where you and your family truly spend most of your time, you will probably come to the same conclusion The Center on Everyday Lives of Families at the University of California came to in their 4-year study of 32 middle-class families. The study showed that more than half of life in the home (68%) happens in the kitchen and family rooms.

“Bigger Is Better” Is Costing You Money
What’s happening with the other 32% (or less if you remove the bedrooms and bathrooms) of space that you might be using only a couple of times a year? You’re paying for it every month. In addition to a higher mortgage for your bigger home, you also have more home to heat, cool and maintain.

Downsizing
To save money – and a lot of it – consider downsizing to a smaller house that is closer to the square footage you are actually using in your current home. Modular homes and small manufactured homes are great options when downsizing. If you are able to pare way down, or if your home is already smaller than the national median, then manufactured homes are worth exploring. The layout of small manufactured homes is typically comprised of an open kitchen and family room area with bed and bathrooms off to the side – truly all that a family needs according California University’s study.  

Modular homes get their name from being built in sections and put together on-site, making it easy to customize the space in your home to exactly what you need – no more, no less. Floor plans for either type of home range from 500 sq. ft. to 2000 sq. ft.
