For Week Ending October 10, 2020
According to a National Association of Home Builders analysis of Census Bureau data, the lot size of new construction homes is getting smaller. The median lot size for single-family homes sold in 2019 was 8,177 square feet, or .188 acres, its smallest on record. While lot sizes vary by region due to population density, the availability of land, and local regulations, shrinking lot sizes is one way to help partially offset the increasing costs of building a new home.
