PHOENIX — If you live in the Valley and want your home to be like a castle, you are in the right place.

According to a report by an online lending company, the Phoenix area was among the top 10 in the nation for house size.

LendingTree used its property value database to calculate the median living space for single-family homes for the 45 largest metro areas in the United States.

It found that metro Phoenix houses averaged 1,832 square feet, the seventh biggest in the nation.

Despite ranking so high in size, the Valley was closer to the middle of the pack in terms of value.

The median Phoenix house was worth $255,000, which ranked 19th. The area’s $133-per-square-foot value ranked 21st.

With a median of 1,952 square feet, Houston topped the size list and was one of three Texas cities in the top five, along with No. 4 Dallas and No. 5 Austin.

Detroit had the smallest houses at 1,333 square feet.

When it comes to bang for your buck, you should probably stay away from San Jose.

The Northern California city ranked 17th in home size at 1,711 square feet but was No. 1 for both median price ($1,185,000) and price per square foot ($693).
