The average home size in Florida is approximately 1,694 square feet or less, depending on the source. This is slightly lower than the national average of 1,760 square feet, but Florida is still a popular housing market. According to Mashvisor, this year will be a seller's market in the state, as the number of active properties is not keeping up with demand. For example, a Minnesota couple was surprised to find that the house they bought had 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and a garage for 2 cars.
It had 1800 square feet under air and 3700 square feet of total living space. The patio had space for an outdoor living area, an outdoor kitchen (or a chef type barbecue with four burners), an outdoor dining room for eight, and several Chase Lounges. The cost of building a new home in Florida is approximately 5% lower than the average cost of building a home in the rest of the country. This could be due to people wanting to keep up with others, which is a real phenomenon in the United States.
Arkansas has an average home size of 1,792 square feet and a small housing market that accounts for just 1 percent of residential addresses in the United States. New Jersey has an average home size of 1,740 square feet but the state average is much higher at 2,040 square feet. Maine has an average home size of 1,663 square feet and Ohio has an average home size of 1,620 square feet. Oklahoma has slightly more space than their friends in eastern Massachusetts with an average of 1,746 square feet.
In Portland, new homes are 20 percent larger than they were in 1910 and have higher prices within city limits. The smallest U. S. average is much higher than that of most other countries.
Hawaii has limited land and ranks last in terms of home sizes with an average of 850 square feet. Texas ranks first in terms of housing size with an average home size of 2,000 square feet. Louisiana has medium-sized homes at 1,786 square feet and a housing market that isn't particularly competitive which should keep both size and prices low.
