Everything is bigger in Texas. The Lone Star state boasted three of the top five cities with the largest homes in the country in new rankings released by LendingTree, an online lending resource.
In fact, Southern cities in general tend to have larger homes than elsewhere across the country. Houston topped LendingTree’s list with a median size of 1,952 square feet, followed by Atlanta at a median of 1,914 square feet.
Researchers from LendingTree assessed the median size for single-family homes. They also calculated the median value you get as cost per square foot.
The cities with the biggest houses in the country, according to the LendingTree study, are:
3. Washington, D.C.
5. Austin, Texas
6. Las Vegas
On the other hand, cities with older housing stock tend to have some of the smallest homes in the country. The smallest homes can be found in Detroit (a median size of 1,333 square feet); Minneapolis (1,360 median square feet median); and Milwaukee (1,388 square feet).
