SIZE MATTERS… And When It Comes To Real Estate…
In Chicago, our standard lot size is 25 feet wide by 125 feet deep, so the length is literally 5 times the width! So intuitively, width is clearly more valuable. Inside the properties widths are about 19 feet, but keep in mind you have staircases eating up lots of space, so on narrower lots you start seeing dining room tables encroach on fireplaces. With narrower spaces, it can start to look and feel like a bowling alley, and less like a home.
