Affordable housing can be hard to find, especially in large cities. That’s why a growing number of people are opting for affordable tiny homes that are just 100 to 400 square feet.
And despite zoning laws that make it difficult to build a tiny house in some areas, tiny homes are becoming common in others. With the help of TinyHouseListings.com, GOBankingRates identified cities where these homes are popular based on the number of tiny houses listed for sale.
“I believe some of these cities are seeing a spike in tiny houses as a sort of dismissal or rejection to astronomical real estate prices,” said Steven Harrell, owner of TinyHouseListings.com. (According to Zillow, the home median sale price in the U.S. is $208,226.) There’s also been an increase in tiny house workshops in some areas that introduce people to the concept and spur interest in tiny house living, he said.
