We’ve been looking at townhomes in the 1700-2300 square foot range and felt like over 2000 sq feet made a big difference. Like having a living room and a family room.  Or not being able to fit bedroom furniture in bedrooms. But I think it really depends on the layout and dimensions of your rooms.

It really depends on the layout I think. Do you like it?

Yes you will see the difference.  The question is do you need more than 2,000 sq ft?

@mammamia:  Mathematically 389 Square Feet is equal to aprox either of the following…

38-3/4 Feet x 10 Feet – OR – aprox 19-1/2 Feet x 20 Feet

So in total a space that is equivalent to say one LARGE ROOM… like a Family Room or Basement Rec Room, or 2 smaller rooms (say 2 bedrooms)

If you truly want to visualize the space here is a way that might make it easy for you.  Most Double Garages are in the 20 x 20 range… so that is essentially what the difference is in regards to a footprint.

I think it definitely depends on the layout, my parents house is 2000 sq ft but seems waaaay bigger than a lot of houses we’ve looked at that are larger. every house is different..
