It’s not always clear as to which is better – is a bigger house a better house, or do smaller houses do just fine?
It’s more than just a question of vanities. There’s a practical reason to be asking that kind of question, and it has everything to do with the fact that larger houses tend to cost more money than smaller houses.
We don’t mean to say that a larger house is necessarily made out of more expensive or better materials or anything like that. What we do mean to say, however, is that larger houses have more going on in them than the smaller ones do.
Larger houses have more space. That means that they have a larger central unit for heating and air conditioning. That unit has to work harder to maintain an equal temperature over that greater space.
That ends up costing more money in the long term than a smaller house does.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though. Keep in mind, if you’re looking at a bigger house, it probably means that you have some roommates to stay in some of those rooms and absorb some of those costs. If you have enough roommates, you can get by without any difficulty at all, and the issue of smaller versus larger simply becomes irrelevant.
