Case Study: Buyer Wanted To Build A Tiny Home


A recent buyer, Zack, was committed to building a tiny home for personal use and as a vacation rental, it was about finding the right location. Here are some considerations to help you if you are looking to build a tiny home.  


Choosing the right land for a tiny home can be just as important as designing and building the home itself. Here are some things to consider when choosing land for your tiny home:


  1. Zoning laws: Before purchasing land, check the zoning laws and building codes in the area to make sure that you can legally build a tiny home on the property. Some areas may have minimum square footage requirements for homes, which could prevent you from building a tiny home. We note on all of our ads what is allowed by the county and township in terms of zoning.   
  2. Location: Consider the location of the land and whether it's close to the amenities and attractions that your target audience will be interested in. If you plan to rent your tiny home on Airbnb, it's important to choose a location that's easily accessible and desirable for travelers.
  3. Utilities: Check whether the land has access to utilities such as electricity, water, and sewage. If not, you'll need to factor in the cost of installing these utilities when deciding whether the land is a good fit. Like zoning, we do note in all of our ad listing what is available for each property. 
  4. Accessibility: Consider how accessible the land is, especially if you plan to move your tiny home frequently. Look for land that's easily accessible by road and has enough space for a trailer or truck to park.
  5. Natural surroundings: Consider the natural surroundings of the land, such as trees, views, and wildlife. If you're looking to create a tranquil getaway experience for your Airbnb guests, you may want to choose land that's surrounded by natural beauty.
  6. Cost: Finally, consider the cost of the land and whether it fits within your budget. Make sure to factor in any additional costs, such as property taxes or homeowner's association fees, when determining whether the land is a good investment.
