The Shrinking Aussie Dream

The Shrinking Aussie Dream - blog post image

Australian houses have been distinguished for much of this century by being the largest in the world. Interestingly, though, this mantle has now shifted elsewhere.

The average size of a new-build free-standing home in Australia peaked in 2009 at 247m2 and has now shrunk to 231m2. The United States now has the biggest houses in the world – at 249m2.

An explanation for the shrinking Australian dream could be many; a fall in the number of people living in homes, growing diversity of family units - including an increase in couples with no children,and one-parent families.
