Is a Tiny Home Right For You?

Tiny homes are trendy for a number of reasons right now - but is it right for you? Read on to find out more.

Mortgage

Smaller homes tend to come at smaller prices. If you're price conscious, this could play into your decision-making process. According to The Tiny Life, it’s possible to build a tiny house for $23,000 on average.


Utilities

A smaller square footage means utility prices are likely lower, as well. Water, electric, sewage, gas, internet - it could all add up!


Environmental

Some may be interested in living off the grid in a tiny house. It's possible to heat the entire space with a small wood stove and use solar power. Many tiny houses even have composting options so it may not be necessary to be hooked up to a sewage system.


There are other things to take into consideration, too.


Storage Space

With a tiny home, there is less space to devote to closets and other storage, so many families will need to downsize their possessions to make the best use of a tiny home.


Living Space

Much like storage space, the living space in a tiny home is minimal, too. Your family and pets will share a much smaller space.


Don't Forget: No matter the size of the home, you should still schedule a home inspection! Whether it's new construction or a well-loved home, a home inspection can turn up any issues you may want to be familiar with.
