Is price per square foot a meaningful comparison for homes?

Sometimes price per square foot is meaningful, and sometimes it is less accurate. It does have value when comparing similarly-sized and similarly-configured homes in a very specific area, giving general trends for the neighborhood. It is less accurate when comparing smaller and larger homes, or in the face of unique features like views, premium lots, property condition, etc., that may vary from house to house.
