Are Households Really Getting Smaller?

Recommended Posts

There are a lot of statistics that show that the size of your average household is getting smaller and this provides a basis for many of the models on house price increase, and housing demand.

But are average houses getting smaller due to affluence, eg. cheap and easy credit and if so will this be reversed when people start to have to tigthen there belts.

Are joint mortgages for instance a sign of this?

All the government models seem to be based on this prediction that is attributed to a variety of factors such as:

Higher divorce rate (Stress? Freedom?)

Young moving out earlier (too university? and Multi Occ Houses?)

Smaller families?

I think if we can provide a reasoned argument against this concept of smaller households in the future and thus can push to have this removed from models.
