Tiny Home Living vs. Modern Luxury: Why Not Have Both?

For most retirees, having a small vacation home or downsizing from a family home is a rite of passage. It signals a time to live life to the fullest while keeping homeowner responsibilities to a minimum. Many want a home that feels like a holiday retreat, one they can enjoy everyday or seasonally. Of all the factors that come into play when deciding on a new home, price and location are two that top the list.  

However, there are challenges to finding a home that suits your needs and lifestyle. New home construction and ownership costs have skyrocketed. As a result, it can be difficult to find a smaller home or a plot of land to build on at a reasonable price. For some, mobile homes or a mobile home park may seem like a good option. Over the last decade, tiny homes have appealed to environmentally conscious buyers as a way to reduce their carbon footprint and live off-the-grid.They have evolved into a balance of simple living and modern conveniences.
