The American Dream used to include a house with a white picket fence, but some point that the dream home grew larger and more grandiose, some being referred to as a McMansion which was 3,000 square feet+.  

It appears that the popularity of these large and often over-sized homes might be waning.  Consumers are moving away from opulent homes in favor of smaller, more streamlined abodes.

According to a survey by Opendoor:

60% have changed their definition of a dream home

52% want a smaller home

81% want a simpler style/design

57% say the top priority is a quiet and secluded location.
