So...how much can $1 REALLY buy?
Zillow recently explored how much house you can buy for one dollar. Currently, a dollar will buy you 1.07 square inches of space in a typical US home. That’s down slightly from 1.2 square inches a decade ago and less than half of what a dollar would buy 2 decades ago, at 2.1 inches. If you’ve been thinking about selling your home, now is a great time to do it because a dollar buys less house today, which means potential buyers need to spend more to purchase your whole home.
