The average size of residential property varies greatly from country to country and from city to city. For example: the average size of a "lot" in Maryland, U.S.A. is 3/4 acre or 32,450 square feet or 9,890 square meters. A lot in Cape Town, South Africa is just over a half acre (11,400 square feet or 3,474 square meters). And a lot in major cities in Australia averages 735 square meters + or - 20% depending on the city.
