We can envision a tiny house or a sprawling mansion. But how big, exactly, is a “midsize” home?
According to the latest available data (PDF) from the Census Bureau, the median size for a U.S. single-family house is 2,306 square feet. This means that half of all homes in the country are smaller than this size, and half are larger.
What this kind of home costs, however, varies greatly by city.
Here’s a look at homes for sale are or near the median home size in 15 parts of the country.
