Fat Houses Fare Better

The only place where thin isn't in is the Manhattan townhouse market, where homes skinnier than the coveted 20-footers are rapidly losing market share. According to one broker, "The challenges are, really, 100 percent a mental thing," in skinny houses, but buyers apparently don't agree. According to New York, "In 2010, the average price per square foot for sixteen-footers and less was $1,013; seventeen-to-nineteen-footers, $1,105; 20-to-24-footers, $1,375; and 25-plus-footers, $1,997."
