Smart, Small, and Affordable Homes Are On The Rise

By now, you have probably heard about the new trend of "tiny homes" and that they are all the rage throughout the states. But what if I told you that small homes, not tiny homes, may be an even better alternative? Home builders are noticing that smaller, smarter, and greener construction is becoming quite popular. Reports have shown that millennials who can qualify for a home loan are more apt to purchase if their market provides housing in the 800-1000 sq ft range with green and energy efficient updates. The same applies to retirees who are looking to downsize; they receive all of the great aspects of owning their own home, but with less sq footage to manage and more attention to detail in the construction. stated that home buyers are willing to pay more money for a smarter home. Some are concerned that the buying and selling of these smaller homes will drop the national median sales price; and this could impact sellers revenue. Worry not, as chances are this will only increase home ownership rates. Simply put, small smart homes are the answer to housing affordability.
