A Home On Wheels?

6 Nov

A home on wheels?  How much “stuff” do you need? Have you ever felt over-burdened by too much square footage and a large mortgage? Many people feel this way and wonder, how can I downsize to an affordable lifestyle? There is a simple answer to that question – downsize to a portable home on wheels.

Many retirees are shedding a mortgage payment of over $1,000 per month, and purchasing 84-square-foot homes. Imagine a total cost of about $10,000-$20,000 to build the tiny home, and a monthly heating bill that totals about $15. Yes, it is possible, and if these tiny homes are not sold in your state, you can pay to have it towed or shipped to you.

Perhaps the hardest part of downsizing is eliminating time-honored mementos, but it can also be liberating. Letting go of the past and all the things that are holding you back; this does not mean you are simply tossing your life aside; you are making room for a new lifestyle with new memories.

The majority of tiny homes are built for 1 to 2 people, as the space inside is small. Retirees quickly see the advantage – saving lots of money. Most people who migrate to these downsized spaces usually save about 90 percent or more per month than they were spending in a larger home.


If financing is necessary, it can be challenging to get the loan. Simply put, banks are wary of these tiny homes. Banks want to see something bigger than a one-bedroom house because it brings up the concern about resale value. Many retirees are simply selling their large home, buying a home on wheels and pocketing a huge profit.

Advantages of Downsizing

• Very little cleaning
• Few, if any monthly bills
• You can move your home wherever and whenever you feel the need to leave. Simply pack and hitch your home on wheels on the back of your SUV.

The bottom line is, everyone is feeling the economic shift and looking for ways to save money. If you don’t mind the very cozy quarters, these homes on wheels can become the answer to financial difficulties.
