Single-family home size
City role: indirect
| Three measures: number of single-family homes permitted by unit size; total number of housing units; number of housing units permitted that are cottages, accessory dwellings, size-limited, senior, or mixed-use.
. The median new single-family home (attached and detached) in Redmond measured 2,730 square feet in 2013, an increase of 161 square feet from 2012. The percentage of single-family homes less than 2,500 square feet shown above is inclusive of attached housing types. The highest number of permits issued was for single-family homes between 3,000-3,499 square feet. The Redmond community values variety in home type and size. The City undertakes initiatives consistent with that goal, such as allowing cottage homes and attached single-family homes through the neighborhood planning process.
Single-Family Home Size
. The total housing supply in Redmond grew by 83 single-family homes and 19 multi-family homes in 2013. The total has increased by 4,624 homes since 2000.
