    It could be the key to many balances.

    Too high a price for so little house. When are people going to wise up to builders charging too much.

      Mary, I don’t disagree that this model could have been offered for less but it shouldn’t be used as an example for all other Tiny Houses that may have higher prices. Since price isn’t determined by just size and it really depends what the home owner wants out of it.

      There are actually many valid reasons why the cost of a house can vary significantly… Tiny Houses can be build for as low as a few thousand on up to well over $160,000…

      What you get for the price varies equally as much…

      Some people want to be able to live off-grid, this means an investment in the equipment that makes that possible, which can account for anywhere from several thousand to over $30K depending what they need…

      Others want a home that appeals to their sensibilities, essentially feed their soul. Just like people who pay to buy art, as the reasons to own a home can be very personal and emotional to some people.

      Some want a home made from ethically sourced materials, and/or prefer things to be hand built by artisans rather than manufactured in a way that helps ensure a healthier living space free from VOCs, etc. but this means more work than a regular house construction would otherwise require…

      While others want certain luxuries they may not otherwise be able to afford for a big house but can afford them for a Tiny House…

      Mind, even an RV can go up into the over $3 million range for everything they can actually stuff into a tiny space… The highest end 5.1 audio system in the world is worth around $5 million, for example, or about a million per speaker…

      Yet others want a home that they never have to worry about, so have it overbuilt to the point it will be up to 60 years before they need to worry about repairs and maintenance on the house and can even have it so the house can withstand over 200 MPH winds and essentially be hurricane proof as long as it’s not parked in a flood zone… Or overbuilt so it can be much lighter than similar size Tiny Houses and thus much easier to tow, saving them hundreds to thousands a year on the cost of towing and vehicle maintenance.

      There are also people with special needs, someone who is wheelchair bound or otherwise needs a house specially designed for them will be willing to pay a premium so they can live a normal life in it without needing constant assistance…

      Along with other examples of why higher prices can be valid if it provides the owner what they really want or need.

      Many of these choices also effect long term costs, which can add up to far more than the cost of the house, which is a one time cost. So saving in the long term is another variable to consider and why some costs can be worth it.

      For example, paying $70,000 for a Tiny House can still end up saving you over ten times as much after a 30 year period compared to the cost of home ownership of a average size house for an average size mortgage and all the additional costs of a larger house for the same 30 year period.

      It by no means mean you or anyone else has to get something at a higher than their willing to pay price. It just means there are valid reasons why some will cost more than others and it really depends what you want or need out of it as to whether that price is worth it or not…

      While many builders are building what their customers asked for and thus the pricing usually reflects their choices.

      Though, it also doesn’t mean all are worth the asking price. Like anything you buy in an open market each product should be considered on a case by case basis but there are builders that aren’t charging a really high premium… They just have customers that want products that cost more to build…

      While not all builders can offer as good prices as others… They either compensate by offering something others don’t or make inferior products to save on costs or one way or another they’ll eventually lose out to the competition but on the flip side some who can offer better prices don’t necessarily offer anything unique and may be cheaper because they’re offering less.

      Along with other variables like a local builder can be either cheaper or higher priced than someone who needs to ship it to you but the costs of shipping, possible tariffs, and other costs variables can make it go either way as to which is actually more affordable in the end.

      So like anything, the details matter and it shouldn’t be judge on any one factor alone…
