For Greenwich homebuyers during the peak of the pandemic, bigger was better. And it helped to have a pool.

The average size of houses that sold in the second quarter -- 5,034 square feet -- was the largest in 10 years of data-keeping, according to a report by appraiser Miller Samuel Inc. and brokerage Douglas Elliman Real Estate. The quarterly average in the Connecticut town had never before topped 5,000 square feet.
