At Reilly Realtors we strive to keep you informed about real estate, both locally and often on a national level. Today, we have a fun infographic from Quicken Loans that is full of interesting stats about the housing market that you may or may not know. For example, did you know that homes in the South are on average just 31 years old, while the average home in the Northeast is over 50 years old? Or did you know that the average size of a home in 2007 was nearly 2,300 square feet? That’s more than 700 square feet larger than the average home in 1982. For more interesting facts on the average American home, be sure to check out this infographic…
