We think tiny homes are still a big deal. And judging by the continued proliferation of reality TV shows and websites devoted to the diminutive digs—and the number of clicks their listings get on realtor.com®—you do too! So we scoured the country for 11 prime specimens for sale right now.
Of course, while a tiny home won’t work for everyone, it offers many perks. Going small cuts down on utility costs and eases your mortgage payments.
A tiny home is (usually) light on your budget as well as its carbon footprint. Beyond being adorable and affordable, a small abode potentially offers some real-world applications: It can be purchased for downsized housing, guesthouses, rental income, or vacation getaways.

Small specs: The brand-new, 260-square-foot cabin sitting on 1.5 acres of wooded land could be the perfect vacation getaway or an investment property. The living space includes a lofted bedroom, plus a (jumbo!) 260-square-foot basement for storage.
Small specs: This brand-new “micro-home” dubbed “Little Sprout” is move-in ready and in walking distance to shops, restaurants, and transit. It’s built on a permanent foundation and comes with all-new appliances, including washer and dryer, cherry cabinetry, granite countertops, and bamboo flooring. A bonus: The 256-square-foot layout features an actual bedroom, not a loft.
Small specs: This custom-built home is ready to be moved to your chosen location—it doesn’t come with its own property. The 192-square-foot structure has a lofted bed, “toe-kick” cabinets and custom closets, and a bath. All the appliances are included. So do the math: A buyer will have to pay for a slab and the cost to move the home. And a place to put it.
Small specs: This might be the price for paradise. It could be lived in while a bigger house is being built, transformed into a vacation home, or used as a guesthouse after the bigger house is built. The cabin has a glass sliding door, tile flooring, basic kitchen, and bathroom. There’s no separate bedroom. There’s an outdoor shower and an outhouse with flushable toilet and sink. But roughing it in Hawaii doesn’t sound half-bad.
Small specs: Just bring your toothbrush. This 408-square-foot cabin is equipped with everything you need for the perfect getaway. Built in 2004, it features a vaulted ceiling, hardwood floor, screened-in front and back porches, and a deck with Lone Range Mountain views.
Small specs: A buyer can live in this 240-square-foot home forever, or stay in it while building a bigger home on the 3 acres with mountain views that come with the sale. The home has a lofted bed and one bath plus a covered porch. It’s close to downtown Manchester and near skiing, biking, and hiking trails.
Small specs: This 230-square-foot home comes with no land, and it must be moved to another location. The stylish space offers lots of storage, shake-style cabinets, a front porch that can be removed for transport, a full-size fridge, stairs with storage, a lofted bed, and stackable washer and dryer.
Small specs: The 405-square-foot cabin is surrounded by 2,000 acres of state game lands. It has one bed, one bath, an open living area and kitchen, and a back deck. Outside, there’s a horseshoe pit and picnic area along with a hot tub.
Small specs: Built in 1940, this lakeside retreat with a swimming hole in the backyard is only 15 miles from lovely Santa Cruz. The 344-square-foot home has one bed, one bath, two decks, a patio, a living room/bedroom, small kitchen, and dining nook. This could be a getaway, or it could be replaced by a larger home.
Small specs: This charming retreat offers off-grid living, yet it’s only 30 minutes from town. The 484-square-foot home includes an upgraded kitchen, living space, bedroom, and bath. Outside, there’s plenty of space for lounging and dining.
Small specs: OK, this one is sort of big. This cute cottage built in 1923 is a roomy 700 square feet. It’s on the large side for “tiny homes” and on the high end for price. What you’ll find are stunning surroundings for this one-bedroom, with a large patio, extra storage tucked under the main level, and a separate office.
