According to US census data, the size of the average American home in the 1950s was a modest 1,000 square feet. Today, the square footage has more than doubled to nearly 2,500.

It’s easy to get trapped into thinking that you need a bigger house.  The thing is, we’re like goldfish.  We expand to the size of our living space.  Because of this, it won’t be long before you feel like you’ve outgrown your new apartment or house.

Buying a new house and moving is so incredibly expensive.  So, if the only reason you’re moving is to have more square footage, be sure to give it a lot of thought before signing on the dotted line.

  10. financial-reader said: Our first place was an apartment. People urged us to to buy instead of rent. However, we knew that renting a small apartment was the right move for us at the time. One of the unexpected benefits was that space was so limited that we didn’t buy much.
