Economists' Outlook

Housing stats and analysis from NAR's research experts.
For over three decades, the National Association of REALTORS® has collected data on the size of homes purchased, most notably the square feet of detached single family homes, in its flagship Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers report. Since 1981 the median size of homes purchased has increased rapidly in the first decade and then remained relatively similar and steady over the last 15 years.
