You may have a friend or family member who has chosen to live the tiny home lifestyle, or you may have shown interest in it yourself. Either way, tiny homes are a real estate phenomenon that have become a standard part of the market in recent years. And there are several reasons why the tiny homes trend won’t be slowing down anytime soon.
- Simplicity—The tiny homes movement is a type of revolution against excess. Because tiny homes only have so many square feet, you have to truly think about what you need and get rid of everything else.
- Environmentally friendly—Living in a tiny home gives you the opportunity to live a more sustainable lifestyle. Because they are so small, tiny houses require much less energy overall.
- Mobility—Many tiny homes have wheels, so you can move them from one place to another. By living in a tiny home, you aren’t tied down to a single neighborhood or area.
- Decreased maintenance—Maintaining a large house can eat up all your weekends and free time. Because tiny homes are houses on a much smaller scale, they need much less upkeep and maintenance overall, providing more freedom to do what you want in your free time.
