We're thinking about relocating to Dearborn later this summer. However, I'm looking around on Craigslist at housing options and the houses seem quite small compared to houses in my area.

We have 5 children, so space is important. But it seems that it is very difficult to find a 4br house over even 1400 sq ft. Is this because of the high cost of heating? Or am I just not looking in the right place?

Any ideas?

Not looking in the right area. I did a quick search on Trulia and found 200+ homes in Dearborn that are greater than 2,000 sq ft. There is also a large housing stock of smaller homes.

You can also search on Zillow for the same parameters.

Thank you so much for your help!

Actually, we're looking for a rental house. I tried to do the same search on trulia and only came up with 1 house, and it seems it is a typo. They have it listed as a 9 bedroom... and it obviously isn't.

Any suggestions? Or am I still searching wrong?

There are some big old houses here and there in east Dearborn...old duplexes that would be about 2K SF including both halves. West Dearborn might have some but west Dearborn often costs a lot more. There have also been some newer infill builds all over Dearborn, too, which might be about that size. Houses of that size are probably more plentiful further west in Dearborn Heights (but some areas of that city are better than others), Canton Township, or Livonia but those areas may cost more, too.
