I've been watching new home construction back east (namely Virginia and
North Carolina), and the lots aren't any larger than Utah lots. So yes,
I stand behind my argument. I'll add this fact: Developers make much
more money selling houses than land, so they like to pack as many houses
per unit land as possible, while still being able to sell them. Hence
the garage-in-the-front syndrome: That abominable design allows you to
pack more house on less land, since you don't have to run a driveway
around the side and back of the house.
