While the average size of a single-family home may be larger than ever, it remained effectively unchanged from the third to fourth quarter of 2015. However, the average home size is expected to dip a little bit as more first-time buyers return to the market, NAHB’s Eye on Housing reports.

Between the third and the fourth quarter of 2015, the median single-family home grew ever so slightly from 2,440-sf to 2446-sf. Meanwhile, the mean square footage increased from 2,649-sf to 2,694-sf.
