The Growing Interest in Tiny Homes, and How to Capitalize on this Trend
One of the reasons Tiny Houses are growing in popularity is their ability to address the growing need for more diverse housing options. With housing stock lagging behind demand, and costs continuing to rise, tiny homes provide a sustainable and flexible solution that can be moved easily. They offer a "fill-in-the-gaps" approach to housing, meeting the needs of various communities, from young adults to retirees. This has led to greater awareness and interest in tiny homes, as people recognize the value they offer.
The term "tiny house" is a popular term that can refer to different types of structures and dwellings. This can range from luxury tiny homes for remote workers, to Park Model RVs for seasonal use, as well as tiny homes built for permanent residence. Within the tiny home industry, a tiny house typically refers to a single dwelling unit of less than 400 square feet in area, built on a permanent or movable foundation. This is reflected in state laws, local zoning ordinances, and local residential building codes, which often include the terms "tiny house," "movable tiny house," "tiny house on wheels" (also known as THOW). Providing lots for Tiny Houses on Wheels is the focus of the Upslope Group, as there is a growing demand for these spaces, which can be built at a large profit. RV Parks are essentially the only place to legally park a Tiny House on wheels, which is why the Upslope Group is focused on building RV Parks.
Compared to larger residences, tiny houses offer several significant advantages to consumers and their local communities. For example, they have a lower purchase price, reduced construction material waste, and a smaller carbon footprint. Additionally, they have significantly lower energy consumption, with energy costs potentially as low as 7% of those for a regular house. These factors make tiny homes more sustainable and affordable, and contribute to the prospect of greater long-term sustainability.
Tiny homes also offer immense flexibility in their use. They can serve as starter homes, workforce housing, caregiver units, student housing, guest houses, disaster recovery housing, and more. This versatility has made tiny homes a popular choice for people seeking an alternative to traditional housing options.
The Upslope Group is focused on building RV Parks that are essentially Tiny Home Communities, making them a win-win-win solution for our investors, our communities, and our residents. These lots can be occupied by Tiny Homes, Park Models, or RVs, giving our buyers a variety of options. Better yet, we can choose to sell or rent the lots, to match the current demand in the market.
