Bigger in Texas: Austin homes among largest in U.S.Bigger in Texas: Austin homes among largest in U.S.https://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=20682015-01-06T10:43:00Z2015-01-06T06:53:00Z

AUSTIN - Houses in Austin on average are among the largest in the U.S., according to 24/7 Wall St., a financial news and commentary website.

24/7 Wall St. culled data from Realtor.com and the U.S. Census for its analysis of "Cities with the largest homes."

Austin ranks No. 9 nationally for largest home sizes, with a typical house being 1,837 sf.

That compares with the No. 1 market for home sizes — Provo, Utah — with a typical house of 1,980 sf.

Houston ranked No. 2 on the list with a median size of 1,900 sf, and Dallas ranked No. 10 on the list with 1,828 sf.

The common saying that everything is bigger in Texas seems to hold true, although Colorado had the most markets on the Top 10 list — Colorado Springs (No. 2), Boulder (No. 6), Greeley (No. 7) and Fort Collins (No. 8).

The statistical analysis included median estimated price — $207,000 for Austin and the expanded metro area — and a median household income of $61,750.
