10 Reasons Why Tiny Houses are Big with Buyers

tiny houses in the mountains

If you’ve heard or read about the tiny house movement, as you’re searching for North Carolina mountain cabins for sale, it’s no surprise.  Typically any home with a living space less than 500 square feet is considered a tiny home.  Now there are even tiny house villages!   Magazines, television, film and online websites have given this international, architectural phenomenon extensive coverage… and for many tangible reasons.

So what exactly are some of these reasons?  Economic gain is top on the list.  Tiny houses cost less than bigger homes and your tremendous savings begin with building costs.  First off, when you’re building a mountain home that’s small in scale, you certainly don’t need a vast plot of land.  Next, your building costs themselves will be substantially lower and the time it takes to be built is by far less. Once you’ve moved into your tiny home, it will become apparent that your monthly maintenance and repair costs are greatly reduced, including both heating and cooling bills. 

The next pleasant surprise comes along when your taxes are due.  Who knew taxes could ever be this low?  Many who live in tiny houses quickly end up with no mortgage, and when you own your home your funds can be channeled elsewhere.

Of course these savings are beneficial for all of us, but especially those who are in retirement mode without the buffer of a generous retirement account.  Those who downsize to tiny houses after searching for North Carolina mountain cabins for sale come to love a much more simple life that gives the gift of freedom and all the sweeter parts of life—family, friends, recreation, hobbies and connecting with the splendor of the mountains in our gorgeous region–no matter the season.
