Recent census figures reported in USA Today reflect that home buyers are once again seeking larger homes. The report states that while the size of families is shrinking, home buyers are demanding bigger and better homes. Even couples with no children are purchasing homes with four or more bedrooms.
An earlier report in 2009 also in USA Today stated that buyers were snapping up smaller homes creating a boom for builders in the small home market.
The more current large home trend reflects the improving economy as buyers continue to ignore the cost in non-renewable resources to build and maintain homes much larger than needed to live comfortably. It is apparent that many of us are continuing to enjoy today with no thought for the future of our planet.
