Escape from an Oversized House!
People of all ages find small and tiny homes very intriguing. First time buyers are likely looking for something they can afford and are willing to live in a small space to be out on their own. Having your own four walls is a vast improvement to living with your parents, a less than desirable apartment or with roommates. Even a small home is your own home.
As people get ready to right size after the children have flown the coop and retire, a smaller and more manageable home can also be the right answer. The idea is to sell the oversized and underutilized home, free up the equity, and have more freedom to enjoy other pursuits rather than being a slave to a large home and yard.
While shows and websites like Tiny House Hunters or Tiny House Listings are interesting to look at, most of the little dwellings are not in locations that make sense to the vast majority of those who would like to live in a downsized home or tiny house. Some of the new designs are beautiful but where do you actually live in them?
Consider new manufactured housing or mobile home communities. Either may offer what you are really looking for to improve your life. They have small home sites that are just right for a small home. I know, the image that comes to mind initially doesn’t motivate you to look further. But you will be surprised at the practical size of living space and affordably priced homes; just what you are looking for. Also, well-managed manufactured housing communities will surprise you with how pretty, quiet and peaceful the neighborhood can be.
Think of the benefits of living with likeminded people, saving on housing costs, having less work inside and out, and having more time to do what you want to do. It’s time to escape from your oversized home and try something new!
