Sometimes bigger isn’t better. Small houses (less than 1000 sqft) are well suited for many types of homeowners. From newlyweds to retirees, a small house is typically the best bet to maximize the benefits of homeownership while keeping a low overhead. Smaller houses are typically cheaper to heat and easier to clean than their larger counterparts. They also make excellent cottages for intimate getaways to beautiful surroundings. Finally, a small house typically has a small footprint, which allows you to make the most of a small lot, maximize yard space, or leave room for a garage.
