Of all the home design trends that can shape your effort to buy or sell a home, house size is one of the most inflexible. You can remove crown molding or install a kitchen island, but adding or removing square footage is a serious undertaking. However, if you have a larger home, our real estate agents would like to talk with you, as after the tiny home trend, big homes are back in a big way.
Home trends can lean toward greater square footage for a number of reasons, including suburban areas increasing in popularity and technological advances making large homes easier to maintain. But in 2020, the lockdowns and quarantines have left some homebuyers feeling cramped in homes that now must be ready to accommodate multiple functions. Millennials have expressed significant interest in larger homes and are moving out of apartments and starter homes for something ready to accommodate their next steps. Help potential homebuyers see their future in your home by staging and showing the best uses for the space you have.
