Homebuyers: Is smaller, better?

I keep reading reports that today's homebuyers are shying away from McMansions in favor of smaller homes. Here's a link to one such article: http://www.time.com/time/business/article/0,8599,1925511,00.html.

Most "experts" believe that the reasons have to do mostly with economics (no surprise there). Not only do smaller homes cost less initially, but maintenance and energy costs are less for the life of the home.

What are your preferences? If you were/are buying a home today, how much square footage do you require?
