On the filters, the units for "lot size" are "square feet".  If your desired lot size is in acres, multiply by 43560... You want to give a minimum and maximum, so maybe just multiply an approximate minimum by 40k, and maybe use double or 10 times that for the maximum.

What I mean is that the lot size function is very vague. It does not break it down as to 1 acre, etc. so when you put 5 in for instance (as in 5 acres) what exactly does it mean? I have noticed that if you wanted a house on 5 acres  and you put in 5, it pulls up houses that are not even on .5 acres,

To many people, bigger is better, but at some point it is just a lot and you can build one home on it. The difference in a 12,000 sq ft lot and a 14,000 sq ft lot is pretty much the same value. A 36,000 sq ft lot would be different.
