When it comes to buying real estate, size matters. It’s one of the largest factors in price, and a huge factor in overall happiness with your home. Alternatively, some research suggests that Americans don’t actually need nearly as much space as they buy.
Before deciding what size home your family needs, consider the following:
Remember — if you’re buying with small children, you need to factor in additional space they’ll take up down the road in the form of individual rooms, storage and recreation areas. Conversely, buying a house when you have teenage children who’ll be gone soon can also be tricky. Ultimately, you’ll need to incorporate additional factors to make the best decision

Generally bigger than a condominium and smaller than a single-family home, the townhouse is just right for some buyers, averaging between 750 and 2,000 square feet.
Most condos are only between 600 and 800 square feet, but what they lack in size, they often make up for in security and free repairs.
Although they’re generally more expensive, new single-family homes generally offer more space than townhouses and condos, averaging around 2,600 square feet.
Although your family size, lifestyle, location and preferred home type will all factor into your decision-making process, you don’t have to decide your ideal house size all on your own. An experienced realtor can work with you to find a house that’s just right.
