New Trend in Real Estate – Buyers now prefer smaller homes

New Trend in Real Estate – Buyers now prefer smaller homes
Real Estate Trend: Studies over the past few years have shown a solid trend regarding home sizes. Buyers today want smaller homes with smaller price tags. Recent global recessions have made many families rethink their budgets and lifestyles.

So, this question is posed. How much space does your family really need? This isn’t a simple cut and dry question. Every family has different needs and dynamics.

Let’s put things into perspective, though. Having a large, show-stopper home doesn’t equate with family happiness. Many families in centuries past lived happily in one room cabins and small-scale homes.

There are social benefits to sharing tighter quarters. Some families feel that smaller homes force more together time, which means more time for bonding and strengthening relationships.

Smaller homes mean reduced costs across the board. Let’s examine these for a moment. Property taxes are based on the value of your land and home. While more prestigious neighborhoods and homes within city limits typically pay higher taxes, remember that a smaller home in that same prestigious neighborhood will pay a smaller  amount in taxes each year. Maintenance costs are also lower. It costs much less to replace a roof on a 100 square meter house than it does on a 600 square meter one!

The same goes for home insurance and, let’s not forget, the actual purchase price of the home. Reduced size means reduced costs.

Perhaps the most important item is reduced energy costs. Smaller homes take less energy (and money) to heat and cool. Plus, there are fewer rooms and that means leaving on fewer lights!

These standard houses have 2 baths and 3 bedrooms for medium level of category while 2bedrooms 1 toilet & bath for the low costs. Can your children share a bedroom? You bet. It can teach responsibility, sharing, and how to get along with others. These are all great lessons to learn as a child.

These standard houses also feature a garage, separate dining room, and three rooms.

Just 60 years ago, when many people’s grandparents or parents were first entering the housing market, the average home was just 100 square meters. Quaint and charming, these houses made warm and loving homes.

If you’re thinking of entering the housing market and are feeling trapped by shrinking budgets, just reaemember that a smaller house can be just as charming, functional, and full of love!

This is a new real estate trend.
