What is the max sq foot place you like? I mean house apartment condo.

On the low end I think 500 sq foot and on the high end I think no more than 3000 sq foot . Now remember you cant have someone to take care of the place. As long as there is a bedroom , bathroom kitchen, Small can be OK for a bit. I stayed at an extended stay, it had all of that, But after a while you can go bananas .. A back yard of .14 acres is good sound small but you can have a very nice garden. I need at least two bedrooms and two bath . How big or small can you go?

  • smallest would be about 1000 sq ft and biggest would be about 2500. I just want a simple house with 3-4 bd rooms, nice living area, dining rm, and a good size kitchen. I have to have a yard for my dog, so living on about an acre would be nice. If only!!!! Maybe one day I will have that, but as for now I am day dreaming... lol

  • I bought a two-bedroom condo that has no yard, but about 1100 square feet. It was perfect when I lived alone, but now with three other people and pets, it's tight. We could double our space and the number of bedrooms and be about right, I think, and a yard for the kids would be nice.

  • Now that the kids are gone and grown. Lowest 1000 sqft. The highest 2000 maybe 3000. Depedns on what was in the house.

  • with the stuff we have- 12oo would be rough...and at this point 3000 would be a bit much since daughter just moved out
    we have lived in apaprtments that were like 700 -when the kids were little and we didn't have the stuff we have now
    and in Utah our house was 3100- we went from that house to a 17oo square ft house when we moved and it was tough
    kinda depends on the house...I like big kitchens and living areas and not so worried about bedroom size

  • My kids & I are in a 975 sq ft apt & it's too small. I wouldn't want more than 2000 sq ft though. I lived in 3200 previously & that was too much. I think somewhere around 1600-1800 would be perfect for me & my girls.

  • I like what we have now. 1000 sq ft house for 2 of us, with enough yard space.

  • With 7 of us, 1500 is about as low as we could go, 5000 on the upper end. .25 acre is as small yard as I would want.

  • Right now I'm in an 1100 sq ft a bit small and most of my things still in storage and no yard. I do plan on getting something larger with a lot more yard. Now do I make it two story or one.
