Years after experiencing one of the greatest financial disasters of our time the future of tiny houses keep looking better and better because of the low demand lifestyle that comes with living in a tiny house.
The future of tiny houses keeps getting brighter because more people every day are gaining interest in a simpler lifestyle. And this is because it makes sense financially, environmentally and even spiritually.

How Many People Are Into Tiny Houses?
The growth over the recent years has been amazing. I estimate that there are now officially over one million people or more that are seriously interested in tiny house living in the United States alone.
I also estimate that we will reach millions more within the next few short years and tens of millions more within a another decade. So what does this mean for you? What does it mean for us? For society? For our kids?
Tiny Housing in Today’s Real Estate?
It means things are getting better! It takes time to innovate, especially in an industry like real estate. But it’s happening thanks to people like you. The tiny house community now has and continues to attract even more tiny house builders, investors, community organizers, designers, events, influencers, products, open source breakthroughs, more affordable housing opportunities, construction technologies, and so much more.
Growing Opportunities for Tiny Living

All in all, it means slowly but surely, more tiny houses are becoming available for us (and our children) to live simply, peacefully and passionately in. And we will be seeing more than one type of tiny house lifestyle becoming more available to us because it turns out that there are a variety of people interested in the benefits that come with downsizing our homes.
Who’s Interested In Going Tiny?
We’ll see ready to move in $300,000 luxury tiny houses for people who are downsizing from million dollar homes to the more ordinary $45,000 tiny houses. But it doesn’t stop there because we’ll continue to see a variety of tiny and small homes from Do-It-Yourself $20k gems to custom built $55k masterpieces. And we’re already seeing some people pay up to $1 million for tiny spaces in highly desirable places like New York City and Paris. Crazy, right? Even financially wealthy people feel that downsizing is uplifting. And that’s not all!
Tiny House Communities Near You?

We’re already seeing official tiny house communities beginning to prop up around the United States and other parts of the world. But this only the beginning because serious real estate developers haven’t even come on board yet. And the tiny house movement is just beginning to make major progress and breakthroughs right now in areas like zoning, codes, social acceptability, awareness, and so on.
More Than One Type of Small House Community
I believe we’ll continue to see more options when it comes to communities completely dedicated to tiny houses on trailers but in addition we’ll also see more park model communities, foundation-built small house communities and subdivisions, and finally we’ll also see even more small apartments, studios, and condos to meet the demands of people who want smaller, smarter and more affordable homes throughout the world.
