Homes Are Shrinking In The US

Bloomberg reports that for the first time in over three decades the size o1000x-1f the average new built home is shrinking. After climbing by half for three decades the square footage of the average house topped out at 2520 square feet in 2015. Through June of this year, the national average has been but 2420. Here in central Indiana the numbers are oh so similar. 2530 two years ago and 2426 in 2017.
