The number one reason people look into tiny homes is because of the price. Owning a tiny home will cost much less than buying a regular sized home. At first people tend to be afraid of this idea because of what others will think but overall these homes are not as tiny as you think. America has become accustom to the bigger the home the better life you are living America dream. However, more house does not equal to happiness as many work day & night just to afford these major mortgages. Tiny homes can give you financial freedom. Everyday people are saving between 30,000 to 50,000 just to put a down payment on a house but now you can buy the whole house at once for the same price. This is a very appealing thought to those who do not want to spend their lives paying for a house.
2. Development Projects
Apartments are mainly the product of a lack of space & money meeting demand. Now you may think if it is the same amount of space why not just get an apartment ? Well because there is one major difference, rent. You can never own your apartment no matter how much you pay. Even for low-income families once they have paid enough into the home they will own a home no matter how small that is a accomplishment of its own. If some one pays about $700 a month on rent and does this for 6 years, that would equal up to about $50,000 which would had been enough to buy a reasonable priced tiny home. This would mean that this person will no longer pay rent. This could help millions save instead of paying until you no longer want to live there.
3. Leaving Junk Behind
America is one of the most wasteful places on earth. People are collecting items more than they ever had before because they have room to store them. If you have seen an episode of hoarders then you can see that having more items can become a disease that could destroy the home and those peoples way of life. Having too many items can be a way of coping with a bigger problem. People who do not have control of their lives tend to hold deeply to their possessions because they believe they can at least control their stuff even if it is trash. Our wastefulness is literally hurting the planet by filling plastic into the seas and disrupting acres of trees to make more factories to build more junk. Tiny living encourages people to have less and use their homes to live and not a place to just store items that had no use to beginning with.
For people who love to travel this is the best option of living. Unlike apartments you are paying for something you can use later. If you have an apartment and decide to leave for 3 months, you are still paying for that space that was not being used. Not only would a tiny house be the more affordable option but certain types can be moved. It is common for tiny homes to be transportable meaning if you find some place you would like to stay, all you would need is to find land. Image being able to move everything you have all at once. Also if you choose to sell the home you can market your house to anyone since it does not have to stay in that area.
People tend to pick where they live due to the distance of their work. As I mention earlier tiny homes make it easy to move meaning people will have more freedom in their job search. This would be amazing for those who like having options but need security. Tiny homes can completely change the way people will search for opportunities.
These are just a few ways Tiny homes can help free you financial giving you more time to do what you want now instead of waiting till your old so you can pay for that oversized house that caused more harm than good. If you are still not convince just think of it like this. At McDonalds you can get that super sized fries or you could get a small, which one is truly better for you overall?
