Why small homes matter

From the 1980s to early 2000s the large “McMansion” home was considered the ultimate sign of success. Over time however, the wants and needs of the average Australian looking to buy or build a home has changed – but many new home builders have not adapted to meet this.

The benefits for living small are immediate and long lasting. It is clear to see why so many are starting to move away from the traditional and unnecessarily large homes; here’s just a few to get you thinking:

  • Australia’s current housing affordability crisis
  • Increase in the average cost of living
  • The rise in popularity of eco-conscious living
  • Australia’s changing demographics

With a focus on long term sustainability, the reduction of the country’s environmental footprint and the rising price of the average Australian home, home buyers are looking for smaller, greener homes that remove the excesses of the previous decades. The small homes movement is gaining momentum across the world and Smart Footprint Homes are excited to bring it to the Newcastle market!
