Home Sizes on the Decline

The square footage of homes in the U.S. continues to decline, according to a new survey.

In 2007, at the height of the housing market's boom, average home sizes were about 2,300 square feet.

"Today, the median home size has dropped to about 2,100 square feet and more than one-third of Americans say their ideal home size is actually under 2,000 square feet, according to a survey by real-estate site Trulia.

'The whole glow of bigness kind of wore off all of a sudden,' said Sarah Susanka, an architect and the author of 'The Not So Big House' book series."
