Buying a Tiny House on Wheels
If you’re looking to buy a tiny house, chances are you’re after a flexible, alternative and adventurous lifestyle. Why not take that flexibility to the next level and buy a mobile tiny house on wheels! Tiny homes on wheels are not only flexible in terms of location and mobility, they also offer much more financial flexibility and tend to be easier on your budget than traditional, stationary homes.
Buying a Tiny House on Wheels
With a tiny house on wheels, you can save a significant amount of money compared to a larger, permanently structured home. The median cost in the U.S. for a tiny house on wheels, fully equipped for full-time living and professionally built, is $59,884. Buying a tiny house on wheels typically means you just buy the home itself, not the land, which further cuts the cost compared to a full-sized home. Many people living in tiny homes across the world have managed to do so debt and mortgage-free. In fact, 89% of tiny house dwellers have less credit card debt than the average American, and 65% of tiny house owners have zero credit card debt!
Building Your Budget
Once you decide that tiny living is for you, you will need to carefully construct a budget. Of course, you will first need to consider the cost of the tiny home itself, plus any additions or customizations you may want to add to make it your own. The cost will vary depending on the size, amenities, materials used, furnishings, and whether or not the tiny home is new or pre-owned. Next, you’ll have to consider where to park your tiny home – will you purchase property, rent a space long-term, park it on a friend or family’s land, or bring it on the road with you? Finally, you’ll want to consider the cost of running your new home. Fortunately, tiny homes are much more energy efficient due to their small size and can save you money on bills in the long-run. You can save even more money on utilities by installing solar panels, rainwater systems, composting toilets or other “green” features for your tiny home on wheels.
