The average home size in Australia is said to be one of the biggest in the world, but is that still the case?
Things are beginning to change in Perth, Western Australia’s economic capital, at least. The Planning Department reveals that in the Perth metropolitan area and the Peel region, the median lot size for 2014 is pegged at 410sqm, a stark contrast to the 564sqm in 2004. Young families and seniors who’ve chosen to downsize make up the majority of buyers of small lots. Insiders predict that this small lot trend will continue in the years to come.
Small blocks equal small backyards. As a result, homeowners will have to carefully plan their outdoor living space design. There are several ways for them to make the most out of what they have. For instance, plunge pools in Perth would allow them to enjoy their small space.
