When I was younger it was a big home on a big lot, then it went to average home on big lot, then it went to big home (with caregiver apt) on a small lot. If I were to ever move again, it would be small home on no lot (condo).  LOL

So, my answer is... it changes over time.

Nathan,

It really depends on the situation.  We both love the great outdoors, so a big lot is preferrable providing the lot has lots of trees and vegetation.  I remember looking at a home with a big lot that looked like a pasture, and it seemed so strange to us.  A

I prefer a smaller lot - and a home that is just the right size!  I like to be able to have something that I can maintain myself if need be as far as the lot goes. As for the house - I am all about ENOUGH space; I don't need more space than I can manage but, the space I do have, I want it to be 'perfect!'

I prefer 100 acres with farmstead, or 100 acres of property listing wrapping around the country home. The realtor.com home portal, the Z and the T cover housing, but not much on the "lot". The land is in square feet not acreage which rural properties offer. So often the large land is hard to convey with the yes, no, maybe, number blanks to fill but not room for soil type, species of woods, etc.

At this point in my life, I would take a small home big lot since the home is in my care, I don't want a big maintenance & cleaning task each week, but Peroni needs a big yard. But having had both in the past, I do enjoy my Townhome the most, we're in a great neighborhood and near lots of trails for Peroni...I'm done with single family homes for me, I keep them for my tenants now.
