Tiny homes have become popular in California and throughout much of America. Generally speaking, these homes offer about 400 square feet of living space, and they are designed for those who are seeking a minimalist lifestyle. While they may be attractive to their current owners, tiny homes can be difficult to sell. This is partially because they won’t be included on the multiple listing service, or MLS, which means that sellers have to reach out to buyers directly.
In many cases, sellers will find buyers through social media or through other networking channels. While finding buyers may be harder when trying to sell a tiny house, preparing a house for sale is the same no matter how large it is. Ideally, homeowners will make repairs, create a proper list price and create a video tour of the property. It is also a good idea to take good photos of the home and to stage it correctly.
Fortunately, taking pictures and videos of a tiny home is relatively easy and shouldn’t take a lot of time. When staging a tiny home, it is wise to get rid of as much clutter as possible to make the home feel open and inviting. It is also a good idea to highlight the different ways that a buyer can use the space available.
Selling a residential property may be easier with the help of an attorney. This may be especially true when selling a tiny house as local ordinances could require that they meet certain criteria. An attorney may be able to verify that the home can be sold without violating any local, state or federal laws. He or she may also be able to work with a seller’s agent or attorney to resolve any other problems that arise.
