A big house isn’t for everyone. Many of the buyers I have been working with in recent months are looking for smaller homes. By smaller I mean 600 to 1100 square feet.
You won’t find many homes that small in the burbs but you will find them in the city.
There are some advantages to owning a small home:
- The heating and cooling costs are lower.
- There is less to clean
- Less Maintenance
- greener – they leave a smaller carbon foot print
- Smaller homes are less expensive to buy.
The down side is there may not be enough room for all of your stuff. The truth about houses is there is almost never room for all of the stuff because we tend to fill up the space we have.
