The demand for tiny homes is getting bigger and if this is something you are interested in, you are in luck! The Triangle is the perfect place for you to lay down roots, no matter how big or small they may be.
There are many advantages to living in a smaller home with one of the biggest being financial benefits. According to TheTinyLife.com, for most Americans, one third to one half of their income is dedicated to the roof over their heads. If you are ok with a little less space, many tiny homes come with smaller price tags which means you can spend less on your mortgage and more on the rest of your life! This is also a great option for those who feel “stuck” renting due to the increasing costs of ownership. You may not be able to afford a 2,000 sq. ft. home but you just might be able to afford a home that is less than 1,000 sq. ft.
