What is the Average Apartment Size in the U.S.?

Average Apartment Size in the U.S.

Across the U.S., the overall average size of an apartment was approximately 882 square feet as of 2023, but this varies quite a bit between markets. Avg square footage fluctuates based on several factors, including the location (urban vs. suburban areas), the apartment building type (high-rise vs. low-rise), and market trends. Apartments in densely populated cities like New York or San Francisco often tend to be smaller than those in cities with more space available for development. Additionally, there has been a trend towards smaller apartment sizes in many urban areas as developers focus on efficiency and affordability.
