Point2 Homes surveyed over 29,000 people across 9 different target countries (U.S., Canada, the U.K., France, Germany, Spain, Mexico, Brazil and Australia) on their housing realities and what they consider to be a good-size home. Here are the key findings:
– Americans enjoy the second-largest homes among surveyed countries, second only to Australians; home sizes among U.S. respondents are 30% bigger than what European respondents have;
– The U.S. dominates space per person: American respondents enjoy 45% more personal space than the Brits or the French, and 70% more space than the Spaniards;
– Though homes in America are bigger than ever, US respondents still want more space—but how many can actually afford it? High prices are pushing homeownership out of reach in cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles.
– Our survey was made in Google Surveys, and was accessible to visitors on Point2 Homes and other real estate websites in the 9 surveyed countries, as an optional pop-up.
– Answers were tallied and analyzed in-house.
