Why are the sq feet on all the houses so small. Is this because they are only counting one level?

You are probably looking at the FSF or foundation square feet which is how homes are measured in Minnesota. This measurement is the length times the width of the foundation or slab (although most homes in Minnesota seem to have foundations).

If the house was a true two story home where the second floor footage replicates the first square footage, then you could double the FSF to arrive at finished square footage. However if the home is a 1 1/2 story, the measurements would be less for the 2nd floor as there is usually less finished space on a home of this style. The same will hold true for split level homes and homes with finished square footage in a basement.
