Downsizing?














NPR’s Marketplace is asking if Americans are moving away from the trend of large houses. They cite a number of reasons for the move, including rising interest rates on adjustable rate loans, increased energy costs, and high-maintenance costs created by the shoddy construction materials used to build big homes on the cheap. They forsee a shift towards smaller homes, but not a decrease in housing costs.

I think we just need to re-define 'large.' Large shouldn't have to mean 'mansion.'
