This article by Yuqing Pan for Realtor.com covers the Strange Allure of Tiny Homes (Explained) with interesting visual data using infographics.

Is tiny the new big? Well, sort of, but not quite.

So is everyone going small? Quick answer: No! In fact, overall, the size of American homes has climbed drastically. The average new home hit 2,600 square feet in 2013, an all-time high that surpassed even the housing bubble years, according to CNN. Still, our data show that most consumers are looking for something more modest. Homes between 1,000 and 2,000 square feet get the most views on realtor.com®

Are tiny houses popular? According to Google Trends searches, yes. Right now, they’re about as popular as they’ve ever been. But why? It stems down to becoming a homeowner and enjoying a life without a mortgage.

This is simple living story a guest post by Gaylin Weber (share yours)

This SHOULD be titled, The Accidental Small Houser, as this wasn’t really a planned thing…It was prayed for, hoped for, longed for…but never actually thought out and planned…at least, not by me!

We were busy raising our 2 daughters in the typical ticky tacky stuccoed cookie-cutter neighborhood in the burbs of South Orange County, Ca. Don’t get me wrong; it’s what I wanted! A lovely home with a tropical backyard built around a deep blue salt water pool. Five bedrooms; all the kids upstairs, master down, thank you very much! Top rated schools right down the road. Who didn’t want that? Millions of people watched my lifestyle on the TV every week and wished for what I had! Anyone of them would have traded places with me in a South County Second! But I felt restless. Wanted something more. Or less.
