Trends in real estate change from year to year. Back in the 50’s, many felt they could live quite well in a home with 2 or 3 bedrooms and perhaps 900 square feet.
Then people began thinking they needed more space. They decided that children shouldn’t have to share bedrooms and that perhaps they needed a “family room” in addition to a living room – so the kids could entertain their guests separately.
The houses for sale in Los Angeles became larger and larger.
Many families felt they “needed” at least 2,000 square feet, if not 3,000.
Now it seems the trend is moving back a bit, so that houses for sale in Los Angeles that are 1,200 to 1,600 square foot range are becoming more popular.
Of course, cost is an issue. First the cost of purchasing a larger home, then the cost of maintaining it.
So how much room do you actually need? That’s a good question to ponder as you begin your search for houses for sale in Los Angeles.
