Owning a home was once a very big factor in the American Dream equation.
But for a growing number of Americans, the idea of actually owning a home is simply that: an idea.
Housing costs and inflation have become a severe deterrent to hopeful home-owners, and owning a house is "more of a luxury thing." Fortunately for those to whom this applies, a new movement has been picking up steam over the past few years that retailer Amazon.com has picked up on.
Enter the Tiny House
Salvation has come for those seeking a budget-friendly way of owning a home in the form of a tiny house. For the price of a used car, you can buy a tiny house in a variety of styles and size, though they typically hover around 400 square feet.
A typical Tiny House
Tiny houses can cost as low as $5,000, and depending on your needs (furnishings, shipping, finances, design, etc), but the luxury models have been seen at $70,000+.
And now Amazon.com is now offering a new tiny home from Mods International: a 320 square-foot insulated 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom tiny home from Mods International which includes a living room, kitchenette, appliances, heat, air-conditioning and french doors.
Why a Tiny House?
- Minimizing your life
- Cheaper utility costs
- Total design control
Tiny homes are all about minimizing your life, and maximizing your space.
