You would think that everything is bigger in Texas. While that’s true with many things, it’s not true for the lots that new homes are built upon.
Lot sizes have been getting smaller for many years. Why? Land costs have risen dramatically in the area. In order to keep housing prices affordable, developers and builders scaled down lot sizes in an effort to control costs. Larger lots in the city are still available but at premium prices.
Many buyers prefer large lots so they are not on top of their neighbors, have room to put in a pool, build a larger one-story home, or simply room to enjoy the outdoors. While the average new home in Allen Texas sits on a one-eighth acre lot, there are homes for sale on larger lots (one-half acre or larger) in Allen Texas.
While many of these homes are higher priced, there are homes available at more reasonable prices.
