U.S. - Overall, city-living is more spacious than ever before—pulling in data for properties across 32 United States cities, Property Shark determined the local building size trends for each decade since 1910.
With a few exceptions, the average size of homes—including houses, condos and co-ops—has gone up significantly across America, with Las Vegas and San Diego leading the pack in terms of growth.
U.S.-wide, homes built in the last six years are 74 percent larger than those built in the 1910s, an increase of a little over 1,000 sf.
The average new home in America, be it condo or house, now spreads over 2,430 sf.
Nowadays, the average number of people in a household is 2.58, compared to 4.54 in 1910.
This means that today the average individual living in a newly built home in the U.S. enjoys 211 percent more living space than their grandparents did, 957 sf in total.
