If you watch HGTV like I do, you’ve probably happened upon the Tiny House movement and the wide-spread popularity of these small, yet dynamic homes. Though Corken + Company has not represented homes as Denver Metro realtors that are tiny homes, we are still fascinated by this movement. http://www.hgtv.com/search/tiny-houses-
In addition, there is much debate on whether to downsize to a tiny home or keep your space. As Denver metro realtors we know that a major selling point for both buyers and sellers is the option to have a good sized yard. This is something that must be considered when moving towards somthing like a tiny home. http://www.denverpost.com/homegarden/ci_29889574/tiny-houses-embrace-lifestyle-or-keep-your-space
While again, I can’t say I’ve seen many tiny homes in the Denver Metro real estate market, I do see them as an up and coming option for those looking for extra living space for guests, seniors or those wanting to remain independent despite their need for extra care. Check out these links for discussion on tiny houses as an option for senior living. http://seniorplanet.org/tiny-houses-the-next-big-thing-for-seniors/, http://www.davidwolfe.com/backyard-granny-pods-nursing-homes/ .
While I’m not a fan of the term “granny pod”, I am a fan of keeping aging family members engaged and involved in their local community and family life. Whether a permanent structure or mounted on a wheels, the tiny house concept is increasingly being considered as a viable solution to our country’s problem of ever-increasing housing costs and decreasing quality of life offered to our aging but independent-insistent population. Whether it be a tiny home, or one of our impressive custom homes, Corken + Company hopes to be of assistance to you as your Denver metro realtor for your Real Estate Solutions without Limits.
