Thinking Big—and Small: 5,000 sq. ft.

Trend: Square Footage

It’s not just the size of the home, but how the square-footage is used. More space can accommodate an expansive master suite, which may appeal to a couple or be used for additional bedrooms,which could attract multigenerational families, says Irvine-based real estate agent Michael Dunn. “It all depends on lifestyle.”

Home size and rooms that meet specific needs are the primary factors in 65% of buying decisions, according to a recent National Association of Home Builders study. So while some buyers may find everything they need in 1,000 square feet, others might require 15,000.

This Coto de Caza home has tile floors throughout the dining room, family room, and kitchen which also has granite countertops and adjacent bar. The 1998 two-story Oak Canyon Trail house has five bedrooms, five baths, and covered loggias over looking the pool. The 2-acre-plus property with views of the surrounding hills comes with four garages spaces.
