Finding a home that fits every want and need on your wishlist is always a challenge. Large living spaces, open concepts with floor to ceiling windows and every bell and whistle imaginable—after all, why not go big and go home, right?
Or maybe not?
A recent Redfin survey found that most buyers are choosing single-family homes over multi-family options, but they aren’t always opting for the biggest home their budget allows. As it turns out, first-time and repeat home buyers alike are more interested in having a cozy entertaining space or private back yard over a sprawling home that drains their savings account and their time. Think: quality over quantity.

These homes are focused on quality and craftsmanship over square feet, and offer comfort that doesn’t feel cramped.With three floor plans to choose from, the Cottages at Nexton collection gives homebuyers exactly what they want at a price that they can afford.

It peaked at 2,467 square feet for the typical home in 2015 and has dropped since then to 2,386 square feet in 2018.”
